    Why join now?

    The PTA needs your voice now, more than ever! These are challenging times, but we can make them better together. The PTA needs everyone's ideas and perspectives to fully represent and work for the good of all ASM students, parents, teachers, and staff.

    Do you have an idea about how to move a beloved school event online? A concern that maybe the PTA could help address? Something you wish the PTA did but you've never suggested it? An idea for something we could do for our children, teachers, or parents to make this unusual year a little easier? We need to hear from you!

    If you can support the PTA through direct donation, that would be great, too -- but it's not a requirement by any means. The $4 annual membership fee is all the money you ever have to give.
