Enchanted Hills Elementary School PTO
Welcome to the EHES PTO Page!
The Enchanted Hills Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a volunteer organization made up of parents, teachers, administrators, and support staff who are all dedicated to the successful education of our children. We are looking forward to meeting families, parents, grandparents, and guardians that would like to get involved with our PTO this year. Everything we do is based on volunteers and we are always looking for new members! You can join the EHES PTO by filling out a membership form found at the bottom of this page. It is FREE of charge to join the PTO.
The PTO funds the buses for 2 field trips per grade, publishes the yearbook, and hosts educational and family events for the Enchanted Hills community. We also financially support technology, literacy programs, and help purchase supplies for our classrooms.
On our page, you will find information about the PTO board members, volunteer opportunities, flyers/announcements, and more.

We do not send texts frequently. We will only text reminders of important events and announcements. They will be monitored by the PTO, not some robot, so you won't be receiving texts at odd hours.

What does the PTO fund?
Admin: Administrative costs such as copies, paper, ink/toner, etc. The PTO pays for every copy that is sent home with the students, in addition to paying for the paper that it used for the copies.
Classroom/Teachers/Students: The PTO offers each teacher the ability to be reimbursed for school supplies up to $100 per teacher. This helps support classrooms and individual students who may be short on school supplies.
Curriculum Enrichment: Curriculum supplements such as Mystery Science Theater are purchased to help enrich the classroom learning environment. We also give money to the P.E. program to purchase more equipment. Teachers have the opportunity to fill out a Funds Request Form in order to request specific funds for a specific purpose that might enrich the classroom environment for the whole school.
School Grounds & Building: This year the PTO, along with donations from local businesses, funded a remodel for the staff lounge. The staff is thrilled and it is now a beautiful, relaxing place to be! Last year we redecorated all of the staff bathrooms. We also raise money to beautify our school and purchase things for the school to make it a better place for our students. We would love to purchase some shade structures for the school in the coming years!
Staff Appreciation: Small birthday surprises are provided for each of the staff members, as well as a Back to School Luncheon and a Teacher Appreciation Week Luncheon. We provide lunch for the front office staff on Administrative Professionals Day.
Student Enrichment: We provide a donation to the nurse's office to purchase clothing and underwear at the beginning of each school year to keep on hand in case any student needs it. We donate money to the cafeteria to cover anyone who may have forgotten lunch money that day and is not able to charge a lunch. We provide vouchers for students who are not otherwise able to purchase anything from our Holiday Store. We also provide the funding for all field trip buses. Each grade is allowed to take two field trips per year with the buses being paid for by the PTO. This significantly decreases the cost of field trips for students!
