ALP PTO, Inc: Our Parent Teacher Organization

ALP Families, Teachers, and Staff, this is the Parent Teacher Organization, and we would love for YOU, with all your individual talents and wisdom, to join us! There are so many different roles to play, big or small. Many of our leadership roles have volunteers running the show, but they still need the help of volunteers to make their role/event thrive! Tell us your interests/giftings/availability, and we will help you find a fit!

The ALP PTO Board meets the first Thursday of every month. Come one come all!!! If any chairpersons cannot come to the meeting, they can instead submit a report to update their overseeing V.P. (V.P. of Operations or V.P. of Activities) beforehand so the V.P. can update the rest of the PTO board concerning that role.

Please leave the money in the PTO box outside the office with the name of the student.


Directly outside the front office, you will find the PTO Corner. And in PTO Corner, you will find all of the ALP Swag for purchase!
