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
  • Sign up for the Junior High & High School Weekly Chatter, that tell you everything you need to know about the upcoming school week with a separate edition for each school
  • Sign up for Grey Matters, Junior High Principal Shen’s weekly newsletter
  • Update your Email Profile
Financial Support ─ We support programs, projects, field trips, Freshmen Orientation, grants to the Jr. High and High Schools, student scholarships and student directories.
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.

March School Days with Modified Schedules

March 10th Late Start
In order to facilitate the additional professional learning for all staff for the upcoming SOS (Signs of Suicide) Prevention Program, the high school and junior high will have a late start for students on Friday, March 10th. High school classes will begin at 10:23 am on that day. To accommodate the late start, bus routes will be scheduled exactly three hours later than usual.
10th Grade English Language Arts MCAS Schedule for March 21, 22, and 23
The tenth grade English Language Arts (ELA) MCAS will be administered on March 21st, 22nd, and 23rd. All sophomores and those others who have been notified will arrive at the normal start time of 7:23 am. Buses will observe the normal pick-up times. For those not taking the MCAS, buses will pick up on the late arrival day schedule. All students will attend classes starting at 10:23 am.

PTSO Gets it Done

The PTSO is the Parent Teacher Student Organization. Our work provides evidence of our important and successful community collaboration to enrich, encourage, support, thank, and applaud.  Every teacher appreciation lunch, freshmen orientation pizza and ice cream event, informative guest speaker forum, graduating senior scholarship, mid-year and final exam survival snack gift, Chatter newsletter, and every donation to support ABRHS and RJ Grey's various annual needs such as furniture, agenda books for all incoming 7th grade students, and Project Graduation - everything we do tells the students and the school administration that Acton Boxborough parents and guardians care.  We care enough to pitch in and be part of the formula that makes the academic experience as positive as it can be.  As we start the second half of the school year, we want to thank all of our members whose donations have made our programs possible. We couldn't do any of this without you.
