About the PTA

Letter from the Co-Presidents

The Hillside Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a non-profit group of parent volunteers and teachers working together to form a bridge between the school and the families, assisting the educational process and supporting Hillside's mission of "Learning and Leading Together". The Hillside PTA is a local group supported by the training and resources of the state and national PTA. Many enriching programs are sponsored by the Hillside PTA, such as: Spelling Bee, Science Fair, Reflections, Assemblies, Foreign Language Clubs and Field Trips, just to name a few.

Monthly PTA meetings are conducted in a business-like manner, and many scheduling and communication decisions are made. Since PTA membership entitles one to a voice and a vote at all general membership PTA meetings, all teachers and parents are encouraged to join.

Volunteering is the best way to know what's going on at school. You will have the opportunity to get to know teachers, students, and other parents. Volunteers are needed throughout the school. Whether it's helping out in the classroom, checking books out from the library, coordinating an event like the Spelling Bee, or translating for a new student, your talents are valued.

We look forward to meeting all the families whose children attend Hillside. Together, we can create the ideal learning environment!
With Warmest Regards,
Lindsay Brink and Mia Shiiba
PTA Co-Presidents
