What is the PTO and who can be a Member?
Arkansas Christian Academy’s Parent Teacher Organization consists of parents and teachers working together to support and enrich all students. We support the school’s staff, help promote student self-esteem, and assist in efforts to solve school needs through volunteering and funding.
The PTO is made up of: David Hannah and Wally Pollich, co-chairs - not to mention our wonderful school staff, volunteers, and parents. So, who can be a member? Are you a father, mother, protector, guardian, and/or a person who teaches or instructs at ACA? If you answered YES, then you are a member!

Become a Volunteer….Why YOU should get involved!
As you can see, we are a small and busy group. This is where you can come in! We need your help, and so do your child(ren). A special thanks to all of our volunteers from last year for all their hard work and dedication. Here at ACA, we strive for excellence and what better way than to become involved today. We are in need of growth and are seeking volunteers to continue re-establishing the organization. We have planned some exciting events this year in hopes to get more parents involved in their children’s education. The PTO is a team effort in which we cannot succeed on our own. Please come and join us by signing up or contacting the co-presidents or secretary.
Meet our Co-Chairs
My son Cayden is in the 5th grade and has attended ACA since the first grade. We have enjoyed being a part of the ACA family, and seeing it continue to grow in size and offerings to the students. I work for First Electric Cooperative in Marketing and Business Development, I have been with them since 2006. I am blessed that First Electric is very community minded, and they allow me to be involved where I think I can make a difference. I currently serve on the Board of Directors for The Greater Bryant Chamber of Commerce, The Bryant Boys and Girls Club, The Bryant Rotary, Saline County Economic Development Corporation and serve in a District position for Rotary International. When we can get away, me and Cayden like to go camping, travel and spend time with family. I grew up in Bryant, and I am proud to be in a position to give back to my community.
