PTO News

The North Hills PTO would like to welcome everyone to the new school year! 

Every parent or guardian of a North Hills student is considered a member of the PTO.  We invite you to become an active participant in our organization.  PTO has many exciting programs and activities planned for the 2016-2017 school year.  Since we do not require membership dues, we depend on parent volunteers, donations and our one and only fundraiser to help offset expenses.  Money collected directly benefits our students by providing field trips, skating party, track meet shirts, assemblies, the annual Memory Book and other fun programs and activities throughout the school year. 

Here are a few key dates for the first few months of the school year:

September 15th - Back to School Night 6:30-8:00

September 22nd – First PTO @ 6:00pm (All are welcome!  We will probably meet in the Library)

October 3-6 – Book Fair

October 3rd – Family Fun Night/Book Fair

October 20th – PTO meeting @ 6:00pm

November 2nd – Skating Party

November 4th – Cultural Heritage Day

November 10th – PTO meeting at 6:00pm
