We know that active involvement of family and community members enhances learning experiences for all students. From our community come many volunteers who assist in our classrooms and in the Media Center, create programs that enrich student life, work to beautify our building, grounds and playground, and continually seek ways to improve our school. We are proud of the exceptionally high and active involvement by the Tootin' Hills PTO in our school activities and functions. Most important is the positive, cooperative relationship between the parents, the teachers and the students who work together on a variety of projects including our nationally recognized Project Outreach program. We invite and encourage you to become part of our active volunteer community.
