What We Do

During the 2014-2015 school year, our PTSO was able to accomplish

so much with everyone’s help!

What does the Parent Teacher Student Organization do?

Every year the Asbury PTSO raises funds to support our students and staff.  We donate money, resources and time to help make our school even better than it already is.  Donations are used for school events, for paraprofessionals and for purchasing various school needs throughout the year.

During the 2014-2015 school year we raised $53,564.27 for Asbury!  Because we are a PTSO, 100% of our money stays at Asbury.  This money was and will be used to pay for:

  • salary support for a paraprofessional in the earlier grades
  • salary support for an ESL paraprofessional
  • Health insurance for paraprofessionals
  • salary for an MDS counselor
  • Reading is Fundamental (RIF) program
  • teacher & educational supplies (including 20 iPads)
  • 4th & 5th grade curriculum supplies
  • 2015/16 planners for 5th grade students
  • books for the library
  • music room piano tune
  • school building security – front door buzzer
  • a 90th Birthday party for Asbury

 

In addition to fundraising, our PTSO helps to bring the Asbury community together in many ways.  

  • Teacher and staff hospitality

  • RIF Program
