HEIGHTS PTO MISSION
Heights Elementary Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) provides wonderful opportunities for parents to work with the administration and staff to provide the most engaging and well-round learning environment for our students!
What we do:
Sponsor educational programming: Every student participates- we work with teachers to bring in curriculum-relevant enrichment programs for each grade, as well as school-wide programs.
Foster community & school spirit through social events (pizza parties, family events, Ice Cream Social--spring)
Organize teacher appreciation events, such as monthly staff breakfasts
Provide special funding for the specials- art, music, gym, technology & library through donation drives
Provide mini-grants & annual stipends to teachers to develop their curriculum and classrooms
Purchase items for the school as needed for the playground, Heights garden and help fund the Heights Mural project
Purchase items for the school not in the school budget (laminator, recess equipment)
Provide direct opportunities for students to engage in community service (food drives for Sharon Pantry, Main Spring lunch program)
Encourage Heights school spirit by having Spirit Weeks at school, offering Heights Hedgie gear for sale and fostering a caring community
