What Does the PTA Do?

Posted Apr 25, 2021 | Category: Uncategorized

Ever wonder what programming and events the Ames PTA is responsible for? We’ve compiled 10 of our favorite programs, and we’re hoping that we can bring many of them back during the 2021-22 school year. Take a look and stay tuned for opportunities to get involved!



Help Us Make Teacher Appreciation Week Special

Posted Apr 18, 2021 | Category: Uncategorized

Ames Teacher Appreciation Week is May 3-7! This exciting week allows students and parents to show Ames teachers and staff just how much we appreciate all they do for our children and community. We will never forget everything the team at Ames has done to make this year feel as normal as possible.

The PTA needs your help to make Teacher Appreciation Week special. Here’s how you can help:

  • Donate here to support purchasing treats, coffee, gift cards for staff, and more. Please donate by Monday, April 19. 
  • Join the teacher appreciation team to help execute this fun week by  contacting Deanna Melvin at deemelvin83@gmail.com to voluteer.
