A big THANK YOU to all who volunteered to help with our recent Book Fair and donated to our Teacher Wish Lists! All attendees - students, staff and administrators enjoyed their visits. We sold over $12,000 in books and filled all teacher wish lists! We also earned nearly $6,000 in scholastic dollars to give back to the school which will provide for purchases such as smart boards for classrooms, STEM carts and curriculum enhancements.

About Our PTO
The AGCS-PTO is focused on supporting the education of all students in The Avon Grove Charter School by fostering relationships among the school, parents and teachers.
The AGCS Parent Teacher Organization is a not-for-profit entity that works closely with administration and teachers to support and enhance the daily school experience of all students by helping to fund the purchase of curriculum, technology, site renovations, educational assemblies, and field trip assistance to students in need.
There are also lots of FREE ways you can help AGCS through programs like Box Tops for Education, Amazon Smile, and more.
In lieu of a traditional catalog based fundraiser, the PTO also utilizes a Direct Donation Program. Please complete the AGCS PTO Direct Donation Online Form to make a donation with a credit card, eCheck, cash, or check. 100% of your donation directly impacts the funding of important school enrichment programs and helps our school continue to provide a quality education for all of our students. We have set a donation goal of $25.00 per student or $50.00 per family, although any amount your family can give will be greatly appreciated.
Please visit our Facebook Page for meeting dates and more information.

As a parent of an AGCS student, you are a PTO member! There are lots of opportunities for you to help... committee chairperson, event planner/organizer, event helper, and much more. Whether you are a mom, dad, aunt, uncle, grandparent, or guardian, there is a place for you. Whether you have 5 hours a week or 5 hours a year, there is a place for you. Whether you are full of ideas or like to work in the background, there is a place for you. The PTO provides fun activities for our students and families, and raises much-needed funding for programs; your ideas, time, and talents are essential to these goals.
Please note that depending on what you volunteer for, Volunteer Clearances may be required. We would be happy to guide you through the process.
We are looking forward to an amazing year!
