Mission Statement

The purpose of the ASU Preparatory Academy Polytechnic PTSO henceforth is to promote the coming together of ASU Preparatory Academy Polytechnic PTSO students, teachers, parents, and community. By providing opportunities to build relationships and enhance children’s educational environment we hope to foster a sense of support, excellence, and enthusiasm through cooperative efforts of parents, students, faculty and administrators. Our goal is also to enhance the educational facilities and opportunities of the students of ASU Preparatory Academy Polytechnic which are not otherwise provided for in the school budget.

How do we raise money? 
Fundraising Events:
  • Run Devil Run (November) - Fun run for the students organized and executed 100% by parents and staff.  This means every cent of the proceeds goes back to the school!

  • Movie Night/Trunk or Treat - Fall family night with costumes, concessions, trunk decorating contests and candy!

  • Holiday Boutique (Nov./Dec.) - Craft & Food boutique where ASU Prep families are prioritized as vendors to showcase their unique businesses.  

  • Spring Carnival (Feb/March) - Super fun family event featuring music, games, drawings, bounce houses, food and performances!

  • Various Spirit Nights (monthly) where generous businesses/restaurants donate a percentage of their profits back to ASU Prep.
