About the PTO

Mission Statement and Goals

The purpose of the Hillview PTO is to promote the education and welfare of the students in our school. To this end, the PTO takes a very active role in the enrichment activities of the school, while encouraging a feeling of community spirit among students, staff and parents. The PTO organizes and mobilizes the many parents that through their volunteerism make an active contribution to the school community. 


Funds to support all PTO-sponsored programs and purchases are generated through the One Community Campaign and through parent-coordinated fundraisers. We urge all parents to participate to the greatest extent possible in PTO activities. Our goals include: (1) fostering a positive Middle School culture which promotes self-esteem, organizational and study skills, and academic enrichment; (2) facilitating social and emotional support through sponsored programs and activities; (3) facilitating interaction between parents and staff through volunteer opportunities; (4) promoting well-being in the community through encouraging and supporting community service efforts; and (5) providing opportunities for parent education through parent networking, speakers, and workshops.
