Fall 2019 PTA Newsletter
Welcome to the 2019-20 school year!
The PTA needs your support so that we can continue making great strides that benefit our East Hill children and staff. All parents and teachers are invited to participate in PTA events. As a volunteer at our school you will get to enjoy interacting with the children, becoming friends with other parents, and accomplish things that truly make a difference.
Your ideas, your time, your talents, and simply your voice is needed. There are endless possibilities in ways you can help: become a PTA member, bake a treat, save BoxTops, or volunteer on a committee, etc.
Please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to sign up to volunteer or share an opinion.
