If you are a parent/guardian of a child at Ardenwald, then you are a part of the “PTO”. There is a PTO Board, consisting of a President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer. These are elected, one-year positions, and there are also non-board positions, as well.
“PTA” stands for “Parent Teacher Association” and to be a member of that Association it requires a yearly fee of $500. Our “PTO” which stands for “Parent Teacher Organization” requires no fees, so all the monies raised and donated stay at Ardenwald. We don’t pay any unnecessary fees.
