It was our intention to unveil some very new and exciting additions to our PTA, during our September PTA meeting, but we were unable to get to our scheduled agenda due to the referendum discussion. Therefore we are sending out this special e-mail to summarize those additions so that you can all begin to utilize them!
Thanks to the tireless efforts of both Maria Deluca and Nikisha Hidalgo, we are bringing AWR into the mobile age! We are excited to launch a brand new secure PTA app for all of our PTA members and a public website dedicated to our AWR PTA. These, along with our recently created Facebook page and Spring Fling website will help give you everything you need right at your fingertips, while keeping it a user friendly experience.
This will help us all stay informed and involved in a much easier manner. Missed a PTA meeting? Read our minutes. Need help remembering early dismissals? Sync our calendar with your phone. Have a question about an upcoming event? Easily email that committee or find their last flyer.
We have made it easier for you to participate too! Try these features; wireless printing, sign up genius links, online donations, push notification reminders, ticket purchases and RSVPs.
Catch up with information anywhere (while sitting in a waiting room or during your commute). No more searching through emails and paper piles, EVERYTHING you need from the PTA can be found in the app and on our site. We have worked to keep them in sync with each other to better your experience with them.Some of our FAVORITE features include:
Box Office to purchase tickets and RSVP
PTA Calendar (sync with smartphone calendar)
Grade Specific Push Notifications/Reminders
In app phone calls to report absences.
Wireless printing features for all pdfs such as lunch menu.
Shop for Spirit Wear

So as always, we are open to suggestions and ideas to make them even better! We will also be building a FAQ page from your questions.So please download the app, visit the website and have fun!
We truly hope that this not only helps us become a more informed, stronger organization but most importantly it benefits our children! Maybe it will make life just a little bit easier too.
Feel more comfortable working on a desktop? Our website is now LIVE, available to all of our families, and offers many of the same features.
