DID YOU MISS OUR LAST SCHOOLWIDE PTO MEETING? No problem! Click here to view the presentation from our March meeting.
The Aspen Ridge PTO is excited to partner with parents to make our Aspen Ridge community stronger than ever - and we'd love for you to be involved!
Current Volunteer Needs:
  • Kickboard Store Helpers (ongoing) | Help run the Kickboard store for 1-2 hours per month. It's a huge highlight for our students, who get to spend their Kickboard dollars on fun prizes. Email [email protected] if you'd like to volunteer!
  • Spring Gala (various volunteer opportunities) | We'd love your help (whether you have a lot of time or a little) to make this year's Gala a great success! Join us at our next meeting (3/14 in the Library), sign up for a volunteer opportunity here, or email [email protected] to find out how you can help.
Here are some of the current ways that you can connect with the PTO and make a difference. All are welcome to join us at an upcoming meeting!
  • Spring Gala Committee | Next Meeting: Tuesday, March 14th, 2:00pm (in the Library)
  • Teacher Appreciation Committee | Wednesday, March 15th, 8:30am (on the Stage)
  • Middle School Engagement | Next Meeting: Thursday, March 16th, 8:30am (in the Heart)
All three of these committees offer fun ways to connect with fellow ARPS parents while making a major difference at Aspen Ridge. We hope you'll join us!

ARPS PTO Mission Statement
Our mission as a Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) at Aspen Ridge Preparatory School is to create and sustain close relationships between our parents, teachers, and students. We seek to keep parents informed about school initiatives and programs by serving as the communication link between the two. We work to cultivate a welcoming community for new families as they come into the school. We sponsor and organize fundraising events, which support our community spirit and enrich our children’s educational and social experiences.
We are committed to strengthening Aspen Ridge’s ability to provide a high-quality educational experience for all students and to create a sense of connectedness across the community.

  • At our November 2022 meeting, one attendee submitted a suggestion that teachers be allowed to wear jeans daily. We spoke with Head of School Charla Salmeron about this, and she explained that just as we ask our students to wear uniforms each day, we also ask our teachers and staff to wear attire that represents their profession and Aspen Ridge well by maintaining a professional appearance. This often involves wearing non-denim attire. However, our teachers and staff are given many opportunities to "dress down" and wear jeans. They can wear jeans every Friday and every early release day, as well as on select spirit days (Go Gold, Go Blue, Kickboard reward days, etc.). They can also purchase up to two staff jeans passes per year, giving them an additional 20 "jeans days" of their choice. All in all, this seems to be an area that is already well covered for our teachers. Thank you for the suggestion!
