Researchers and practitioners have long acknowledged a strong link between parent involvement and children's success in school. ACA encourages parent involvement because it increases student achievement, enhances self-esteem, improves behavior, and betters school attendance. The primary purpose of the ACA PTA (Parent - Teacher Association) is to promote the welfare of the children at school and home by focusing of education, social events and sports. PTA is a forum where parents can get involved in and support various school initiatives. PTA's role is to communicate and solicit support in different areas. The ACA PTA members have either initiated or been involved in various activities: after school tutoring, annual school picnic, teacher appreciation week, support in organizing of school fundraising events, addressing parents collective issues with board and administration, etc. If you are interested in learning more about PTA and its activities, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
