PTO Reserved Parking

Please kindly refrain from using the Reserved VIP and Auction Winner Parking Spots at ANY time of the day, unless you are the authorized user. This includes before, during and after school, during both carpool times, and during any after school event or activities.  Vehicles found in violation may be towed at the owner’s expense.

The Reserved Parking Spots are clearly designated and marked with each authorized family’s name. These spots were purchased by ACS families, with the rights to park there at any time during the school year. To purchase your very own Reserved Parking Spot, please plan to participate in our annual School Auction in the Spring.  ACS and the PTO appreciates your cooperation and understanding!




The ACS PTO Social Committee, with help from our generous ACS Families, provide appreciation events throughout the year for all of our fantastic ACS Staff.  See below for opportunities to help provide items for any upcoming event while earning volunteer time!

Shop with ScripScrip

All hard card Scrip orders will be placed on the first Friday of every month. Our next order for physical gift cards will be placed December 1st.  Use Scrip to purchase your holiday gift cards and ACS will earn a percentage back on every card sold.  Shop with Scrip is a great program that can help ACS meet its fundraising goals without spending an extra dime. It works like this: If want to buy a new coat from LL Bean, you simply log onto, order a ScripNow card to use for your purchase and, in return, ACS receives 16% of the purchase. It really is that easy! Don’t really shop at LL Bean? Check out the 726 other retailers linked to If enough families use Scrip, we would not have to hold any “traditional” fundraisers.

Visit:    Enrollment Code: 5882A46242211 to purchase your Scrip Now Certificates at any time!  For any questions regarding the Shop with Scrip program, please contact Jeannie Reddan at



School Store: Open every Friday after school across from the office. (Closed during Book Fair ad Holiday Shop). We have a variety of fun stuff such as: Pencils, erasers, Goo, Fidget Spinners and ring pops. Prices range from $.05- $1.50.

Please stop by!
