About the Hillside PTA

What does the PTA do?

We are a group of parents and staff at Hillside Elementary who advocate on behalf of students. What does that look like?


We raise money through shirt sales, a Color Run, restaurant nights, a spring field day, direct donations, and other smaller activities to make donations to Hillside Elementary to
purchase technology, provide Tuesday folders, and other needed items. 

Community Events

We hold free events like Breakfast with Santa, movie nights at the school, and various other activities to build community within our school.


We provide volunteers to help the school with book fairs, vision and hearing screening, and many other needs.

School Support

We support our school and staff by providing hospitality throughout the year, like meals, coffee bars, and other treats to show our appreciation to those who work so hard for our students.
