Two Key PTO Leadership Positions That Need to Be Filled

Two Key PTO Leadership Positions to Fill

Hillside PTO has two key leadership positions available for 2018-2019. Thank you so much to everyone who has reached out to volunteer! We have filled many of our positions for next year, but we still need two additional volunteers to join our board. The remaining available positions are president and vice president of membership and school services. Please consider joining our collaborative, dynamic, and fun PTO Board. Both positions allow you to shape and vote to approve next year’s PTO agenda. Please contact Natalie Hoffmann to volunteer or ask questions.

Thank You from Book Fair Committee

Our book fair was a huge success this spring! The planning committee would like to thank everyone who shopped with us and, especially, those who volunteered their time to help. Because of you, Hillside kids had a blast picking out their favorite books, and our teachers received $750 in new titles.
Through our Book Fair Change Challenge and Scholastic’s dollar matching program, Hillside has raised $2400 to buy books for children in need this year. Way to go Hillside!!

Friends of Hillside


                          Friends of Hillside Fundraiser for the 2017-2018 School Year

Year after year, parents of Hillside Elementary students have kindly donated to the Friends of Hillside Fundraiser (formerly the Hawky Campaign). These funds continue to be used for many different activities and items benefiting each and every student at the school. This year, the PTO will use this campaign as the primary fundraiser for Hillside.

We understand that it is sometimes hard as a parent to volunteer your time due to other obligations. Life gets so busy with work, kids, and activities that volunteering can become a burden. In order to reduce the need for some of the time-consuming fundraisers we’ve put on in previous years, the PTO this year is running the Friends of Hillside fundraiser to collect monetary donations from parents. Without this fundraiser and generous donations from parents, the Hillside PTO would lack sufficient funding for all of our great programs.

Each family that contributes to the Friends of Hillside fundraiser will be recognized in the Hillside PTO newsletter as a thank you for your generous donation.
