Mission and Vision

The mission of the PTO will be to organize, communicate, and facilitate various activities and fundraisers that align with the school’s policies and mission and vision while providing positive interaction and/or fostering support among the AVA parents, teachers. staff, administration, and the surrounding community.  The PTO will oversee two committees to be formed this year: a Fundraising Committee and the Community Relations and Support Team.

All members of the PTO and its committees will operate with integrity and kindness in a constructive collaborative and respectful manner with the volunteer coordinator school administration and in accordance with the AVA Community Agreement.  Officers and committee members will be supportive and knowledgeable of school policy, and will use only appropriate and approved channels of communication to inform and engage the AVA Community on the various activities by the Foundation throughout the school year.
