Parents and teachers are partners in education. One of the ways that St. Adalbert brings parents and teachers together is through the Parent Teacher Unit, or PTU.
The school PTU was first organized in 1947. The group was formed to bring a closer relationship between parents and teacher of the school that they may cooperate in promoting the welfare of the children of the Academy of St. Adalbert. Through its fundraising activities over the years, the PTU has a history of helping supply some of the equipment used in the school and library.
PTU also raises funds for the school by running programs like Market Day, Box Tops for Education, Campbell’s Food Labels, and more. Annually, the PTU holds a variety of fundraisers to provide financial support for classroom activities such as field trips, holiday parties, and other special events. Each year the PTU hosts many events for the children and their families like the End of Summer Pool Party, Santa Shop, Family Toboggan Night, and the end of the year school picnic. For the teachers, the PTU has an appreciation luncheon, and provides funds for each teacher to purchase classroom supplies.
The PTU is open to all parents of children attending the Academy of St. Adalbert. Parents are invited to attend all meetings. Meetings are held the 2nd Wednesday of each month during the school year at 6:30 p.m. in the school library.
