The Hillside Organization of Parents and Educators (Hillside PTO) brings parents and teachers together to enrich our school community and enhance the educational experiences of our students. Our organization is comprised of many dedicated volunteers, and we welcome new parents to contribute their many talents to extend our initiatives. 


The PTO provides financial support for school programs such as:


  • Field trips

  • Cultural arts assemblies throughout the school year

  • Meet the Author visits

  • Art and Physical Education programs

  • School Library

  • Teacher development

  • Classroom supplies and special projects


We also sponsor additional Teacher and Student resources:


  • Grounds Beautification

  • Outdoor classroom initiative

  • And more!


Most importantly, we also like to have FUN! The PTO sponsors free events to encourage school community building such as:


  • Back-to-School Welcome Week

  • Family Movie Night

  • Future Hillside Hawk Playdates

  • Family Dance Night

  • Superhero Fun Run

  • End-of-Year Ice Cream Social


PTO meetings are held monthly, and all are welcome (and encouraged!) to attend.

Please read the monthly PTO newsletter, The Scoop, to remain informed about important PTO information, dates, and events. You can also like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram!
