Welcome to the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) page! We're a group of parent volunteers that love to support Akiba and to have fun while we're doing it!


The PTO will have a year-long theme dedicated to Mitzvot. All children will be offered a Tzedakah box to decorate and bring home.  We will collect the tzedakah one or two times a semester and vote on the top three charities to support. Every PTO event will have a voluntary mitzvah component.


Want to join our wonderful team?

Please email us at and we will call you to discuss your volunteer interests.
