The Athens PTO has historically has notable success at raising funds to support the groups activities, thanks in no small part to the support of the area, local communities and the families of students and staff. Thanks to those efforts, the PTO was able to provide in recent years:
  • Renewal subscriptions to Study Island, an interactive web-based study tool;
  • Books for the libraries in all facilities
  • Field trips for hundreds of students to facilities and events such as:
    • St. Louis Science Center
    • Scovill and Henson Robinson Zoos
  • A backstop constructed just north of the Cantrall Intermediate school
  • Playground mats beneath the swings to improve safety and reduce wear;
  • Magazine subscriptions, selected by individual teachers to support their respective curriculums
  • Teacher allowances, providing staff and teachers with support to acquire needed supplies for their classrooms
  • A variety of supplies for use by all school staff, such as the Ellison Machine, paper and laminating supplies
