The Park Hill PTSA welcomes you to the 2016-2017 School Year!
We are excited for another great year at Park Hill Elementary! The role of the Park Hill Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) is to raise funds, promote volunteering, support our students and teachers, and foster a sense of community at our school.
Last year was an AMAZING year! We raised close to $200,000 and that money goes right back into the school to pay for things like:
Instructional materials, Paraprofessional support in the classrooms, Reading expert time, Crossing guards, Reading is Fundamental program, and many other essential people and programs that support our teachers and allow them to focus on your children.
All of these things would not be possible without the outstanding volunteers who take pride in helping our school and whose dedication makes every event a success. We invite you to join and participate in the PTSA this year. Whether you have 30 minutes or several hours, your help is greatly appreciated by the school, not to mention a great way to meet new people at Park Hill and in the community. Some of our volunteering opportunities include Movie Night, Spirit Week, Parent’s Night Out, Restaurant Nights, Direct Giving Night, Spaghetti Dinner, the FundRun and the Auction. Contact us to find out how you can get involved!
Follow us on Facebook! You can keep up with what is going on with Park Hill Elementary PTSA by following us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/PHEPTSA/. We will be posting information about volunteer opportunities, upcoming PTSA events and school news.
Catch up at our meetings! Everyone is invited to our monthly PTSA meetings, which are held the 1st Thursday of every month at 5:30 p.m. in the library. The first one of the school year will be held Thursday, Sept. 1. Childcare (and chocolate!) will be provided.
