ACS Athens Parents Teachers Organization

ACS Athens PTOAccording to its by-laws and constitution, the purpose of this organization is to provide opportunities for parents and teachers to meet in an atmosphere of friendliness and understanding that they may cooperate in advancing the schools’ standard of education by:

  1. Supporting the schools’ goals through volunteer service, fundraising activities, and enhanced educational opportunities for students (see latest in PTO News & Events);
  2. Facilitating communication between parents and the schools; and
  3. At the discretion of the Executive Board, providing a forum for discussion of important issues and, where appropriate, informing the schools’ administration and Board of Education of the opinions of the members of the organization.

 

PTO Welcome for the School Year 2017 - 2018

The PTO's Information letter to the ACS Athens Community, states its main goals / mission and highlights important events and dates for the current school year.

(Updated July 2017)

On behalf of the Parent Teacher Organization we warmly welcome you to the American Community School of Athens  - a community of parents, students, faculty and staff representing 52 nationalities, spanning across the globe.

Our Goal is to bring together the diversity and multinationalism of the entire community through events and fund-raising for the educational benefit of our children.

The Reality is that without the support of our parents, many of these events would not be possible.  That’s why your participation and willingness to help out and volunteer a bit of your time is essential to the success of our goals.  By volunteering at these events, you can also gain points for your children’s school house!

Some of the contributions of the PTO over the past years have included; classroom starboards, computer labs, mobile laptop units, student lockers, new gymnasium floors, and books and DVDs for the library.

Please take the time to look at the PTO section on the school website where you’ll find our mission statement, constitution and by-laws as well as all events, information and minutes from our general meetings which all parents are cordially invited to attend.  Our announcements are made through school-wide emails, Parent Express emails (PEX), Facebook (Pto Acs-Athens).  Announcements will also be posted on the school website under the PTO tab, on your school notice boards, the PTO notice board (by the transportation office & the electronic bulletin board.

For the year 2017-18, we have a wonderful board of parents hailing from Greece, the U.S., Russia, Jordan and Australia.  We still have a few positions available and it would be our pleasure to have anyone who might be interested to join us for a fun and exciting year ahead.  We think most parents would agree that serving on the PTO is a great way to not only support your children’s journey through school but to have the opportunity to work closely with the faculty and administration, forging positive working relationships for the benefit of our children’s ACS Athens education.  Please email or call any of us if you might be interested or have questions.
