What does the PTA support?

The Alston Ridge PTA supports student, teacher, and family activities. As a public school, Alston Ridge Elementary receives funding for many aspects of the school, but it doesn’t cover everything. The PTA is a separate parent-run group that raises money to help fund many important activities. We work closely with Mrs. Caswell and teachers to identify financial priorities. These have included:

  • New Technology replacing old Promethean boards classrooms
  • Teacher stipends to defer the cost of classroom supplies
  • Teacher training for 12 teachers last year for Project Based Learning
  • Supplies including toner for printers, science specials, and more
  • Cultural arts shows for students on early release days
  • Wellness initiatives including gardens, before school yoga, and more
  • Science Expo
  • Field Day
  • Teacher Treats on early release days
  • Yearbook is created and distributed by the PTA
  • 5th Grade Picnic and Celebration
  • and more….

Volunteer when you can

Help comes in many forms – time at the school, helping with mulch on a weekend, or donating for quarterly teacher treats. No effort is too small. Indicate your area of interest on the registration form to stay in the loop of upcoming events and opportunities.
