Ayer-Shirley PTO

Together we can do more.

The Ayer-Shirley PTO is a parent-teacher organization based in Ayer and Shirley, MA. The goal of the ASPTO is to provide support to the Lura A White Elementary School and the Ayer-Shirley Middle School. The ASPTO aims to provide family activities and fun while raising funds to help defray costs of things such as special assemblies, school trips, and after school enrichment clubs.

Please Note: The December PTO meeting has been moved to the 1st Tuesday, December 3rd to avoid confilct with the Middle School sports banquet. The meeting will take place at the same time and place as usual, on December 3rd at 7:00 in the Middle School library.
