Aiken Elementary PTO Mission Statement:
- The Aiken Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a 501(3)c organization whose purpose is to strengthen, enhance and encourage the educational and social environment of Aiken Elementary. Its goals are to complement the school curriculum with additional opportunities for parents, teachers and students to learn, socialize, communicate and grow, thereby fostering good relationships between school, parents, teachers, and community.
- The members of the PTO are all parents/legal guardians/family members, community and professional staff members. All families and staff members are encouraged to participate in PTO activities throughout the year, even if unable to attend meetings. The Leadership Team is composed of PTO members who have volunteered for the positions.
- The PTO operates on an annual budget, which is approved by the PTO membership vote. All members of the Aiken Elementary School PTO, attending a meeting, have voting privileges for that meeting. The money used to sponsor PTO activities is raised through PTO annual fundraising.
- The success of the Aiken Elementary School PTO can be measured in the cooperative spirit with which parents and staff work together to share their concern and care for Aiken Elementary School students. The PTO's success can be seen in the student's appreciation for their school, their teachers and the opportunities presented.
We hope you will join us this year! Afterall, “I Am, You are, WE are AES!” For more information, please contact any member of the PTO Leadership Team!
