ACS Athens PTO
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 63 nationalities, spanning across the globe. As an ACS parent, you are automatically a member of the PTO; no registration is required.
Our Goals are:
- to bring together the diversity and multinationalism of the entire community through events and fund-raising for the educational benefit of our children and
- to express the thoughts of the parents to the school effectively and to all work together for positive changes.
We believe that most parents would agree that serving on the PTO is a great way to not only support our children's journey through school but to have the opportunity to work closely with the faculty and administration, creating positive working relationships for the benefit of our children/s ACS Athens education.
Our announcements are made through school-wide emails, our Facebook page (ACS-Athens-PTO), this web page, school notice boards, the PTO notice board (by the transportation office) and the electronic bulletin board.
