APS Express - PTO Edition Summer 2022


APS Express

PTO Edition - Summer 2022

Goodies with Grands Memories

The celebration of every holiday has one thing in common: the opportunity to pause from our daily lives’ tasks and responsibilities and focus on what is important. Grandparent's Day, in particular, lets us honor our grandparents while reminding our students of strength, information and guidance older people can offer.

As a PTO, we were so excited to offer this opportunity to our school family. Please enjoy the videos below with pictures of our students and their Grands!

What is the Mission of the Altenburg Public School PTO?

The mission of the PTO is to celebrate & support students, staff, families and the community of East Perry County.

Together we will work to foster a spirit of cooperation, communication, and collaboration among APS students, parents, teachers, and our community!

Committing to the PTO does not mean endless hours of work! It is can be as simple as volunteering for one activity a year!

We know that our community is special. East Perry County is an amazing place for our children to grow and learn, and a big part of what makes this community so remarkable is YOU!


As a PTO, we are here to support each other through challenges, band together to solve problems, and celebrate the custom made children of our community.

Stop by our table at the APS Open House to learn more! We look forward to seeing you!

What does the PTO do?
