Family involvement enriches the educational experience! At AHS, every household is required to give at least 30 hours of volunteer service per year. Using your strengths and talents, the Parent Service Organization (PSO) organizes volunteers, providing ample opportunities for families to meet that 30-hour requirement. An orientation on how to record service hours will be given to families nearer to the start of the school year.
The PSO includes a board of parents who are equally as excited for this new school year as you are!
A Message from the PSO President
A Word about the PSO Board
AHS is very fortunate to have a supportive parent community. The PSO models this supportive relationship with the school.
The PSO works in harmony with school administration to carry out the mission and vision of the school. The PSO promotes communication between the school and parents and builds a sense of community at AHS. Since its inaugural work in spring 2022, the PSO has worked tirelessly to achieve these goals.
The PSO begins the academic year by welcoming and supporting new families to AHS. They organize community building events. Service opportunities facilitated by the PSO are ongoing throughout the year.
PSO board members serve one-year terms, and may be invited to serve additional terms based on personal interest, balanced also with the PSO board’s desire share leadership opportunities among various parents and families.
The selection process for the 2024–2025 PSO board will begin during the fourth academic term of each year. Please complete the survey to register your service interests below and indicate whether you would be interested in serving on the PSO board in 2024–2025.
The current members of the board and their responsibilities include: Kellie Barton (room parent organization, which connects teachers with parents who help with in-class celebrations, holiday parties, class devotionals, provide transportation for field trips, etc.), Angie Boyden (spelling bee, teddy bear project, and science fair), Amanda Secrist (parent mentor program and experiential learning), Heather Street (spirit wear apparel, uniform swap and donations, and book fair), Tehani Wilkinson (Constitution day/evening, Christmas décor, grandparents day) and Carly Kenney (picture days, field day, and Patriot Reading Challenge and Patriot Book Club).
Please also join me in thanking the 2024–2025 PSO board members as they complete their very successful tenure.
