Parent Teacher Organization
The purpose of the University Hills Elementary PTO is to involve the parents, grandparents, and the community in the education of their children. This involves raising money to help provide extra educational tools and opportunities that would otherwise not be available to our students. The benefits our children receive come from your involvement. Please join the PTO. Discover how much you can learn and how fulfilling it can be for you to be involved. Anyone interested can sign up at the office or contact one of the officers or Mrs. Mahres, Principal.  All PTO/SAC meetings are held in the school library. 

 PTO/SAC Meetings Schedule

 Meetings held in the School Library

School Advisory Council

 As an extension the District Advisory Council (DAC), each school has a "School Advisory Council" (SAC) that meets to review the topics presented in the DAC meetings as well as to discuss topics relevant and specific to our school operation.  This group works in conjunction with the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).  If you are interested in joining University Hills' School Advisory Council and/or serving as a representative for University Hills in the District Advisory Council, please email Kelly Mahres, Principal as soon possible.

Thank you so much for your interest and investment in University Hills!

**REMINDER:  Parents we will not be allowing students to check out of school after 2:15 unless it is an emergency.
Thank-you for your understanding and cooperation.
