How far can you throw a dollar? And other news you can use
Where do your contributions to the Heights PTO go?
Did you know that Heights PTO plans and executes events such as educational programming for all 558 students at Heights? Each and every student participates in field trips, visits from the Museum of Science, Moose Hill, and many, many other events throughout the year. Did you know that there is never a charge to attend any of the PTO events throughout the year? ALL families regardless of their membership standing, are always invited to our events.
We encourage all Heights families to support our mission by becoming PTO members.
Your membership dollars directly support the Heights Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) efforts to build a strong community of Heights Elementary parents, teachers, and students. As a registered non-profit staffed by volunteers, the PTO provides educational programming for each grade level, enhances our school's physical surroundings (funding classroom supplies, library books, playground equipment, the Heights garden, music equipment, and more), and hosts school-wide spirit events (pizza parties, picnics, movie nights, and more).
