AAPTO-MB News

Welcome to the American Academy PTO (MB) Homepage. Here you will find an easy to navigate clearinghouse of all PTO information, fundraisers, and events.
 
Looking forward to an awesome sauce 2018-2019 school year with all of our American Academy MB Teachers, Students, Parents, & Staff.

$1-A-Day Campaign (Spring 2019)

Thermometer
Wow! You all turned out in spades (and looking AMAZING in your black & white attire) to our annual Spring Soiree and did an amazing job of fundraising for AAMB!! Thank you to all who attended and donated. With that ONE NIGHT alone and about 70 families (appx 150 people) participating, we made it 60% ($60,000) of our total fundraising goal!  Let’s give a big round of applause to those families, teachers, and staff for their contributions to our school's new math "extras" for GoMath! For the other 500ish families who couldn't attend, you still have a chance to make an impact!   Our $1-A-Day Campaign Goes Into Full Swing This APRIL! If every family at American Academy Motsenbocker who did not already donate at the Spring Soiree were to give $167 (that's $1/day for every day your kids are in school, 20 Venti Coffees at Starbucks, 4 car washes, or 1 fancy dinner out... just sayin')  then we will reach our fundraising goal by the end of the month!!! 
 

Click here to donate $167 (or a donation amount of your choice) for your family.  

KIDS ONLY ~ Penny Wars ~ April 15-May 3, 2019

 

Check the couch, don’t forget the dryer, and I think I saw a few loose quarters floating around the car! Get ready for REBEL PENNY WARS here at AAMB April 15- May 3. We are going to be asking our AAMB Rebels to go on the hunt for loose change, with parent’s permission of course, and then collect that change by grade level (BIG penny jars at the school) which will help fund raise for our new GoMath! “Extras” (i.e all the bells and whistles to help make our new math platform the best it can be!). The top earning grade will get to PIE their PRINCIPAL in May!  (One grade winner for KP-5, one winner for MS). And if all grades collectively reach a goal of $3000 in our Penny Wars Fundraiser, then each student in the school will get receive a FREE Celebrity Lanes Bowling/Laser Tag Gift Certificate. Let’s go make some CHANGE for CHANGE! (Changing our Math Curriculum).

Sponsorships

CORPORATE SPONSORSHIPS

We welcome sponsorships from businesses, individuals, and families! When you connect with American Academy - Motsenbocker through an annual sponsorship, you are supporting the educational goals of the school and the children within your own community. For every donation made, no matter the amount, there is a direct benefit to the school's educational plan, which positively impacts the students and the community! And you guessed it, your donations are TAX DEDUCTIBLE!
 

Room Parent

ROOM PARENT INFO & SUPPORT

We encourage you to become a room parent for the year at least once during your child's time at American Academy. This is a commitment that both working parents and non-working parents can easily participate in! This is a great way to connect to your child's classroom, get to know their teacher(s) and support those teachers in fun classroom parties, events, and more. We want to be your HOME BASE for any questions related to your room parent volunteering.
