Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!
Hillside PTO’s Mission:
To provide support and services to the children of Hillside Elementary, their families, their educators, and their community. We endeavor to promote a spirit of caring, good citizenship and a respect for others within our school and our community.
Please Join the Hillside PTO!Please join the Hillside PTO to ensure that we can continue to provide educational enrichment activities for our children and programs that strengthen our parent-teacher community.
The $20 annual family membership fee supplements the main source of PTO revenue that is generated by fundraising activities during the year. The PTO budget is allocated to a wide variety of PTO-sponsored events and services that would not be possible otherwise, and that directly benefit ALL of our children, our families and the faculty.
Highlights from our Budget include:
$9,000 Staff stipend to support classroom supplies
$5,000 Scholastic news subscriptions (one for every Hillside student!)
$4,000 Teacher appreciation
$2,500 Teacher professional development
$2,000 4th grade field trip
$1,500 Family needs network
$1,000 5th grade party
$5,000 New playground fund
$7,500 Board Discretionary fund – Used last year for:
- individual teacher requests for enrichment items for his/her classrooms
- the new interactive music lab
- new carts for the library
- new TV for the lobby
- hotel rooms and airfare for teacher conferences
Thank you for your support! We are looking forward to a great year getting to know you and supporting Hillside.--Hillside PTO, 2019-2020 School Year
Be InvolvedWe always need volunteers for various roles and programs throughout the year! More information about PTO volunteer opportunities can be found here.
Each year, our goal is to bring together and support the Hillside community through family-friendly events, school-wide celebrations, student programs and staff appreciation days. These things would not be possible without PTO members and parent volunteers - especially program and committee chair members! Without a chair person to take the lead on these programs, they can not run.Some popular programs that still need a chair person are: Parent Breakfasts, Spirit Wear, Battle of the Books, Halloween Bingo, and Original Works. Two new events we are hoping to bring to Hillside for the 2019-2020 school year but need help organizing are a Superhero Run and a Volleyball Game: Hillside Staff vs Waxpool Staff.If you have any interest in chairing a program or have more questions about details/time commitments, please email us. (Emailing does not commit you to the PTO or volunteering.)For questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
