Parent Teacher Association

The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) at ABA is a parent run organization that includes all parents and teachers at ABA.Our purpose is to support the aspirations of ABA by organizing and running events that provide community building opportunities and raise funds that will go towards equipment and services that add value and enhance ABA and our children’s education.

The PTA is run by the PTA Executive Committee, a group of annually elected members with two volunteer teacher members that represent the teacher community at ABA. We depend on all members of the community to make our events successful and with so many community building events there is always a chance to take an active role in making ABA the amazing school that it is. We hope you join us at our monthly meetings and use this portion of the ABA website to get updates on all the events, volunteering opportunities and news from your PTA.

Become a Homeroom Parent 

This is very much a grassroots position and without the HRPs', the school would not be the amazing experience it is for our whole community. 

We need one HRP per class in Elementary and Middle School and only one per grade in High School.

Meet the 2020-21 Team

The new 2020/21 PTA Executive Committee is ready to serve our community!

Following the 2020-21 PTA nomination process, we received 7 nominations and that is just above the minimum number of members required by the PTA Articles of Association to run a PTA. We ask the community to accept this letter as confirmation of their position. We are so grateful that these ladies have come forward to take on this responsibility while they wade through online learning, attend to their day jobs and support their families. Please welcome them.

The remarkable situation of this school year will present its challenges and although this PTA will function in a limited capacity, I am certain they will find creative ways to bring our community together while focusing on community building, charity and goodwill.

Your support is crucial and helps the new team take on this challenging time successfully. I look forward to hearing from them and discovering what they have in store for us.

The PTA team of 2019/20 wishes you all the best.
