Programs & Events

The ATS PTA runs many programs and events throughout the year, including those shown below.





9/10/2023 12:02 pm


Each fall, every student at ATS will have the opportunity to participate in the National PTA Reflections contest.


This year’s theme is “I am Hopeful Because…” Watch the 2023-2024 Reflections Call for Entries video with your child to get inspired. 


Students can submit entries in literature, videography, dance, music, photography, or visual arts. Entries require an artistic submission (in paper or electronic format) and a short explanation of how the submission interprets the theme. 


Entries will be due in early November and are required for Grades 3-5 (encouraged for Grades K-2).

Box Tops for Education

8/10/2023 3:15 pm

Money from Box Tops goes straight into your classrooms, through Grants and Teacher Reimbursements. Get your kids involved to search for Box Tops and clip them (be sure to keep the expiration date on)!

You can spot bright pink Box Tops on a wide array of the food and household products, from granola bars to diapers, school supplies to detergent. Some of the brands included in the program are General Mills, Pillsbury, Old El Paso, Green Giant, Ziploc, Hefty, Kleenex, and Scott. Each of these Box Tops is worth 10 cents to ATS.

**No Guilt Option: If you forget or don’t have anything with box tops on it, just paper clip $5.00 to the Box Top collection form and turn it in – we’ll count that as a complete sheet!

Box Tops are now easier than ever! You can still hunt down bright pink Box Tops logos, but now you no longer need to clip and send Box Tops to school. All you need is your phone!

To participate:

1) Download the ALL-NEW Box Tops app.

2) Select “Arlington Traditional School” as your school.

3) Shop for Box Tops products (there are hundreds at the grocery store – some of the brands included are Pillsbury, Cheerios, Yoplait, Annie’s, Old El Paso, Cascadian Farms, and Lysol).

4) Scan your store receipts with the app to find participating products.


The app will automatically credit ATS with our Box Tops earnings from your receipt. Twice a year, ATS will receive a check to buy whatever we need to support our school. Money from Box Tops goes straight into your classrooms, through Grants and Teacher Reimbursements.
