What is PTA's role?
At the high school level, PTA's role is significantly different than that which you may have experienced at the elementary or even middle school buildings.
OHHS is a thriving community of learning, activity and events - from music to drama to athletics to special-interest clubs. We have phenomenal teachers and mentors who are leading these efforts, which is a key factor in why Oak Hills is a successful and strong public school district.
OHHS PTA's primary focus is on the student. Our key fundraising and manpower efforts go toward:
After Prom - in the spring provide a safe, fun and over-the-top event for more than 1,000 students on one of the most exciting but potentially dangerous nights of the school year.
Student Scholarships in the spring helps our graduating seniors begin their next journey of life longing learning.
The annual fundraiser raises the bulk of the money to fund the student scholarships, teacher mini grants, staff appreciation, hospitality and a small part of After Prom.
Considerable PTA effort is also spent on supporting our outstanding staff and faculty. We provide hospitality support at such events as College Night and Veteran's Day, but significant effort is put towards the Staff Appreciation Week which is always enjoyed by our dedicated staff.
PTA begins with P - the parent. Without that we cannot operate and we have no reason to exist. The OHHS community has a strong tradition of support that we hope will continue. PTA updates and news are communicated via the weekly Friday email, our Facebook page and this website.
