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.
TUESDAY TALKS AND TRAVELS
Each TTT is organized to ensure a learning experience or discovery you will surely enjoy, Sign up for them as soon as they are announced as spaces are sometimes limited and they fill up fast. Priority sign up is given to those who attend PTA Community Meetings.
At present, there are no TTT planned.
ABA Volunteers are the Best!

Ramadan Food Drive
Ramadan is the month of fasting for the Muslim community. During this month, charity, patience and reflection are the focus and the Ramadan Food Drive gives our ABA community an opportunity to share in that spirit.
Teachers and staff at ABA are truly unique and we appreciate everything they do. Every year the PTA decorate the staff room and parents bring in an amazing array of dishes- savory and sweet- we are able to say “thank you” in a truly ABA community way. This day of Appreciation is our way of thanking you for inspiring and teaching our children to be lifelong learners no matter what the circumstance.
