Parent Teacher Organization

At Ascension, all parents belong to our Parent Teacher Organization through dues that are included in yearly tuition.  We have a very active PTO and encourage all Blue Gator parents to take advantage of the many opportunities to become involved in our school community.
The purpose of the PTO is to support Ascension Episcopal School and its faculty and staff in completing the school’s mission by fostering effective and open communication between the school and parents while encouraging parent involvement on all campuses. PTO works with the school to enhance educational excellence opportunities for students, parents, faculty, and staff through volunteer efforts and financial support.  Each year,  PTO fundraiser efforts go toward one school-wide project and/or one project per campus as determined by school administration and PTO Executive Council.

Save the date, October 7th from 12-5pm for the 2023 PTO Fall Festival!  Click HERE for more information.
