Bach PTO Statement of Solidarity
The Bach Elementary PTO Board stands in solidarity with the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) community, and all those standing up and speaking out. We see the members of our Bach Black community who are suffering. We assert the responsibility of every individual in our community to understand, engage, and address current widespread inequities.
We join the Bach School administration and staff in their commitment to working against all forms of racism and exclusion of any kind in our school, and throughout our community. We commit to fostering an inclusive, equitable educational experience that pursues the dismantling of systemic racism. Over the summer and into the fall, the PTO will be considering concrete ways in which we can work together as a community towards these goals. If you have suggestions or want to be a part of this effort, please reach out to our PTO Leadership at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We support each and every student at Bach. We believe every student deserves a safe and supportive environment in which to learn and grow with their peers. We encourage our entire school community to listen, learn, and advocate for change.
Please visit the AAPS site with the latest information for food distribution during the school closing period.
Who is the PTO?
The Bach Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a group of parents, teachers and staff whose goal is to promote the educational and social well-being of all Bach students. The PTO meets once a month to discuss ways of building community, encouraging family involvement, and improving communication between home and school. The PTO also plans school fundraisers and school-wide family events.
Every year with PTO funding:
- Each class enjoys curriculum appropriate field trips, theater productions, and author talks
- Every teacher receives funding for additional field trips and/or classroom supplies
- Hundreds of family members participate in science, literacy, and community building events
- Every family receives a school directory and bi-weekly newsletter
We can’t do it without YOUR HELP!
With your volunteer time and financial support, the PTO is able to pay for classroom supplies and provide our children with many wonderful and unique opportunities! Please consider making a donation to the PTO, joining us at a PTO meeting, and/or volunteering at our fabulous Bach events.
