Programs and assemblies

Parent Education Nights (Bedtime Stories, Math Night, and Science Night)

Teacher Appreciation events

Gifting items to APE (front office benches)

-Why do we have to have fundraisers? Isn’t my PTA membership enough?

The Texas PTA and National PTA have dues, which is what PTA memberships go towards.  Therefore, we have fundraisers to raise money for the PTA.

-The company I work for has a gifting program, can I donate to APE PTA?

YES! Please talk to your company’s HR and fill out the necessary paperwork for us to receive a corporate match! Any contribution, no matter how small, is appreciated!
