Wanted:  A Few Good Volunteers

The Hill PTA is a big machine and we need your to help keep it running!  If you’ve been thinking about getting involved, now is the time to find a committee you’d like to try out during the next school year.

Every committee can use volunteers (Hill Agreement #4: Right to Participate!), but these are the ones that need a few good helpers:

  • Yearbook:   A team of 3 – 5 people who can help with graphic design, picture-taking, organizing & logistics
  • Community Fundraising:  Plan & coordinate Spirit Nights at Brick Oven and Catfish Parlour
  • Dillo Cards:  Order & distribute monthly cards and assist 2nd chair with special order program twice per year
  • Grounds:  We need a crew of 3 to 5 people who can help water, weed, do light mulching and set up the summer watering schedule on Volunteer Spot.  You can do a special project (needs prior approval) or not.  It could be as small as planting flowers in a pot.
  • Principal Coffee – Assist our current chair in providing refreshments at the Principal’s Coffee once per month.
  • Watering help this summer– sign up here: http://vols.pt/suGYsK

Hill would love your help!

If you’re interested in any of the above, email president@hillelementary.com.

All PTA Committees and contact information are on the Hill website, here.

You’ve probably seen the kids wearing green hats at school – Hill’s Green Team – has been given the Eco-Schools Bronze Award from the National Wildlife Federation.

Eco-Schools USA uses a program of seven steps that involves a wide diversity of individuals from the school community – with students playing a primary role in the process.  The butterfly garden that was established at Hill, plus the Green team helped qualify our school.  Thanks to Ms. Hoffner and Ms. Holguin for leading the Green Team!

School Growth

As Hill school leaders continue to plan for next year, the Facilities Committee has developed recommendations that will allow Principal Newton to keep all of our students on campus next year.

Although school administrators continue to work the logistics, there will be several moves this summer that will allow the campus to accommodate more students and keep grade levels together.

To see all the recommendations, please click here.
