What Does the PTSA Do?

Supporting Students, Families, and Staff of the Arbor Heights Community

In a nutshell…

The Arbor Heights PTSA works closely with the school’s administrators, staff, and families to identify areas that can help make for a safe and nurturing learning environment for our students. Whether it is through contributions of specified funding or simply volunteering our time, our mission is to better the school for our children and broader community.

Through the generosity of families and the broader community, we are able to provide funding in a number of areas that contribute to making Arbor Heights Elementary a great place for our students.

For the 2023-2024 school year, we are budgeted to fund over $147,500 of expenditures on top of countless hours of volunteering to support the teachers and staff at Arbor Heights Elementary.
