Dear Shadow Hills High School Parents:

The Shadow Hills High School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) would like to welcome you back to school. For those of you who are unfamiliar with us, we are a volunteer organization made up of parents, teachers, administrators, and support staff who are all dedicated to the successful education of our children. The SHHS PTO works hard to help make the school year both enjoyable and exciting for students, teachers, and parents. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience

2) Completes all homework assignments given by teachers

3) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life and Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject

5) Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to college

The purpose of our organization is to aid the students and staff by providing support for educational and recreational needs; to promote open communication between administration, teachers and parents and to encourage SHHS school spirit and pride. The PTO uses its resources, both manpower and monetary, to support all the efforts of the staff of our school. We are looking forward to meeting families, parents, and grandparents that would like to get involved with our PTO this school year. We encourage you to not only join our organization, but get involved as well! Everything we do is based on volunteers and we are always looking for those of you to help make a difference in the lives of our children. Every positive imprint we make on our children can go a long, long way. If you are able to give some time, day or evenings, please join us! Many hands make the job easier. We seek volunteers to help us with the following activities:

1) School-wide events along with Student and Teacher recognition events

2) Fundraising Events

3) Outreach and recruitment of parent and community volunteers

Keep in mind that by volunteering, you will get to enjoy becoming friends with other parents, and accomplish things that truly make a difference. We can match your time constraints and interests to needed tasks. We have many ways in which everyone can contribute and we need your ideas and energy! We look forward to meeting you!

All PTO meetings will be held on the 1st Tuesday at 5:30 pm monthly. All meeting dates will be posted on the PTO website the first week of the school year. We also post the agenda 7 days before each meeting if you would like to find out what will be discussed ahead of time. When you join the PTO, your support brings us closer to our goals. Our dues are $20.00 per person. Use the sing up envelope to join, by filling it out and returning it along with your membership dues to the front office, at our sign up table during registration. You can sign up online via our Blast Athletics page: to receive reminders and notifications of all our meetings.

We look forward to getting to know you. On behalf of SHHS PTO we would once again like to extend a warm welcome and best wishes for a successful school year!

Most Sincerely,

The Shadow Hills High School PTO
