Welcome to AMES PTSO!
AMES Parent Teacher Student Organization’s (PTSO) mission is to lend support to students, their families and AMES teachers during the school year. Julie Faure is President, and Jenica Barber is Treasurer. Julie is parent to an AMES Junior and an AMES graduate. Jenica is parent to an AMES Senior and an AMES Freshman as well as two AMES graduates. The PTSO is a stronger organization when we reflect all of the cities, diverse backgrounds, and varied interests of the AMES students and families. We are a group that values any contribution of time from our AMES family. Please consider joining us!
Our PTSO organizes and funds AMES student dances, dinners for teachers and staff during Parent/Teacher Conferences, breakfasts for students before ACT and PSAT tests, Open Mic night, teacher appreciation week, scholarships for seniors, graduation party, etc. This organization is only possible with YOUR help. Being involved is a great way to support your student(s).
Meetings for 2021-22 will be virtual. We will be sending a Zoom Link a few days before each meeting and the agenda will be listed to the right under the date of the meeting. We will also organize in-person gatherings to better get to know each other.
Meetings are Thursdays 7:30-8:30pm on Zoom unless indicated:

The PTSO is a volunteer organization. We hope to raise $25 per student enrolled at AMES in order to fund the activities we organize. 100% of the funds we raise and the work we do go directly to support the AMES students and teachers!
Please DO attend our PTSO meetings, share your thoughts and ideas, lend a hand, and/or email us. We can even set a time to meet by phone or virtually if the PTSO meeting times are inconvenient. “It takes a village” for us all to raise our kids, and it takes a village for PTSO to do the best job possible of supporting all the Parents (including families, guardians!), Teachers, and Students at AMES. Let's have a great year together!
In support of all of AMES’ communities,
Julie Faure, PTSO President
Jenica Barber, PTSO Treasurer
