Curriculum Enrichment Grants & Allocations
Each year, the AHJS PTO raises funds through events and donations. A large percentage of these fundraising efforts are given back to the school, the teachers, and the staff in the form of Curriculum Enrichment Grants and Allocations. These grants are an important part of maintaining the junior school's standards of excellence in education.
