The PTO depends on all of you for support! There are a lot of ways to get involved by volunteering or coming to our monthly meetings. But we know that you’re busy! Here’s a couple of super simple things you can do to bring financial support to Ashland Ridge…

If you’re cleaning out your closet, kitchen cupboards etc., feel free to drop things off at Stuff Etc. (906 E. 1st Street). No need to make an appointment, just let them know it’s for Ashland Ridge! A percentage of the proceeds will go directly to the school.

If you’re an Amazon Shopper, go to and do a quick search to find Ashland Ridge PTO and then shop as normal! Every little bit helps.

For these and other ways to support the PTO, please check our “Get Involved” link at the top of this page.

Any questions? Send a message to Thank you for your continued support!
