News to Know


COVID-19 UPDATE: Because the AAPS strategy is one of prevention and mitigation both for our school community and the community at large, as supporters of AAPS, we are following suit and closing the Ann Arbor PTO Thrift Shop until further notice. We all must do our part in taking preventive action at the community level to help flatten the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We encourage all of you to do your part as well and appreciate your understanding in this unprecedented time. As always, Safety First!


Great News! Now your school will receive funds earned through the shop more quickly than ever before! Starting with the May 2020 Payout, all funds earned will be Directly Deposited into your school’s PTSO bank account!

Click here for the ACH Direct Deposit Authorization Form and email the completed form to!
