Welcome to the PTSO!
The PTSO (Parent Teacher Student Organization) includes representatives from both the Acton-Boxborough Regional High School and RJ Grey Junior High School. Our mission is to serve the schools in the following ways:
Communication ─ We interact directly with the home, school, school committee and community through email newsletters
Speaker Forums ─ Our annual speaker series provides forums for students, parents, faculty and the community. The ABRPTSO works closely with the school administration and other community organizations to identify topics of most interest and relevance to our community.
INTERFACE Referral Service ─ this mental-health and wellness referral help line connects people of all ages to mental health providers. Due to our contract with INTERFACE, the service is free to Acton and Boxborough residents. More information is available here.
In support of A-B's overall focus on Wellness and with the planning and coordination of several dedicated students and staff members, this week has been declared Wellness Week. The goal is to highlight a different area of wellness each day and to have interested student groups run related activities.
Monday 4/10: Play: Students are invited to join the Ambassadors in the lower gym during all lunches to play a variety of games.
Tuesday 4/11: Mindfulness: Students can join The Wellness Club in the cafeteria during all lunches to do some mindful coloring and to write notes of gratitude to people who are important to them. There will also be yoga and mindfulness workshops during these periods.
Wednesday 4/12: The Day of Silence: Students can join Common Ground in participating in The Day of Silence. This is a day of action in which students across the country vow to participate in a form of silence to call attention to the silencing effect of anti-LGBTQ bullying and harassment in schools. Students can participate by signing a silence pledge or by wearing purple or an Erase Hate bracelet.
Thursday 4/13: Health and Fitness Day: Teachers are being encouraged to bring their classes and join the Physical Education Department throughout the day up at Leary Field and Dow Track track to participate in a variety of activities such as Zumba, frisbee, soccer, and walking. Also, as part of the Teen Driving Program, there will also be a distracted driving simulator set up for students to try.
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Stacy Harris.ew members will be trained by current board members.
