What the PTSA does for Amador
During the school year, the Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) coordinates the National Reflections Arts Recognition Program, supports Amador in the selling and distribution of P.E. Clothes, provides countless hours of volunteer power at registration, school dances, health fair, and other events; and conducts fundraising that provides thousands of dollars in grant money to teachers for classroom consumables and student projects. In addition, the PTSA has made a 3-year commitment to support classroom technology at Amador so that all teachers’ laptops and tablets will be upgraded between 2015 and 2018.
