Contributions to ASH Applications
Contributions to ASH (CTA) are a way for the PTO to use funds raised by events and sales to provide monetary support for educational and extra-curricular programs. CTA is intended for programs, equipment, and other purchases that will have a long-term or lasting impact on the school and our children. We are especially looking to support initiatives that are environmentally sustainable and impact the highest numbers of students.
All ASH faculty, staff, parents, and students are eligible to submit CTA applications. The deadline for the Spring 2023 CTA applications is Sunday, May 14. Click here to access the application. For questions, please contact Frances Joseph.
