PTO ADMINISTRATION

The ACMA PTO Board is made up of passionate parents who work hard to assist in the smooth running of our school.

ACMA's PTO provides funding for in-classroom teacher support, classroom equipment, artist in residence, field trips, student summer scholarships, and much more.The funding is supported by money raised through direct donations and fundraising.

When teachers and students came to us with a desire to showcase the art and writing of ACMA's students, we were proud to support Abstract, a Literary and Arts Magazine produced by ACMA students.

WE SUPPORT WRITERS AND ARTISTS 

Film makers need to learn on current equipment. We're working with the Film Department to update their cameras and give them more options for exploring their art.

WE SUPPORT FILM MAKERS

We send dancers to the National High School Dance Festival in Pittsburgh. While there, they get to meet other dancers, learn new moves, show off their talent, and make connections that will help them in their post-ACMA lives.

WE SUPPORT DANCERS

We work closely with the Theatre Department and our principal to meet the needs of our actors. A special fund was initiated in 2018 to use for PAC improvements in the future, such as LED lighting and updated mikes. 

WE SUPPORT ACTORS

This is merely a fraction of what we support. We gladly support all students, artists and makers at our school.
