Dear East Hills families,

Welcome, everyone, to the 2017-2018 school year! We have a great year ahead of us! The East Hills PTO is looking forward to continuing our support by offering enriching programs and activities for the students and families in our school community. It is our goal to do everything we can to enhance the learning environment and sense of community for our children. There are a few key components in order to be successful in this endeavor together:

1. Fundraising - Please consider participating in any of our upcoming fundraisers during the school year. Every little bit helps and 100% of all money raised goes back directly to our school programs and events.

2. Volunteering - We could not run all of our events successfully without the help of our fantastic volunteers. Any amount of time is greatly appreciated.

3. Attend Meetings – During our meetings we provide important information on district happenings and upcoming school events, and often spotlight speakers who focus on educational topics of importance to our community. This is a great place to get plugged in and involve yourself in something you feel passionate about.

This year, we will be focusing on supporting educational programs and clubs, expanding our sustainability efforts, strengthening students’ equity and inclusion capacity, supporting our educational staff, and building our 4-8 community through enriching and enjoyable various activities.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. You can reach us best through our email at

Looking forward to a wonderful year, together! Thank you!
