Get involved

Many parents have expressed interest in the schools' Youth to Youth Program and how they can help. The PTO board has been talking to Dean of Academics Julia Tokatlidou and even attending the Saturday program in order to fully understand how our Parent Community can support the program. Please be on the lookout for an informational letter.

Past Events

  • Parents met with the President of ACS Athens Dr. Peggy Pelonis in a very well-attended and informative question-and-answer session. We look forward to the next one.
  • ACS Athens has purchased land near the Annex building and is hoping to begin construction on the expansion of the campus very soon.
  • The PTO held a very successful Valentine’s Treats and Sweets Sale on Friday, February 14th and raised money to buy new Recycling bins for the Middle and Elementary Schools. The PTO would like to thank you for your support - for our many sales and events and for your support of the Recycling Program.
  • To celebrate the beginning of Spring, the PTO held a sale of traditional red and white string bracelets. It is an old Greek tradition to tie one on your wrist during the month of March. A beautiful birds-and-blossoms display decorated the front of the school where students and parents were able to buy the bracelets and other homemade red and white items.
  • The ACS Athens PTO was very happy to contribute sewing materials to the "Love and Serve Without Boundaries" organization, for their Tailoring Project. The PTO donation included sewing items like scissors, thread, and fabric, enabling LSWB to create clothes and beautiful bags. It is because of the support of the ACS Athens parent community that the PTO is able to give back and make a commit to making a difference in people's lives in communities all over Athens.
