    Donations

    The PTO helps to support the students of Golden Hill by purchasing educational subscriptions, supplying materials and items for their classrooms, assisting to lower the cost of field trips, and paying for in-house events, such as animal and science shows.  In order to provide these tools to our students, we need to raise money in a number of ways, such as fundraisers and donations.

    If you do not want to participate in the fundraisers, please know that your donation is always welcomed and appreciated.

    It costs the PTO an average of $40 to $50 to support each student at Golden Hill.  Please consider donating today!  The attached form is for your convenience.

    A Letter from the PTO President

    As I reflect back on my past years as PTO president, I am pleased with the progress the Golden Hill PTO has made in building school pride among families and staff, our fundraising efforts, and giving back to the students of Golden Hill.  Each year, we embark on a fundraising campaign that includes a number of different fundraisers throughout the year to allow us to give more than $7,500 back to Golden Hill.  These funds have been used to buy new technology, such as iPads, Elmos, and Smartboards; reduce the cost of field trips; purchase fans and equipment; renew subscriptions for online teaching tools, such as BrainPop, Tumblebooks, and A to Z Learning, which are used by all teachers within Golden Hill for all of our students; and recently, surprise the students with specialties, such as Kona-Ice during field day.

     

    This will be my last year at Golden Hill and my last year serving all of you.  It’s a bittersweet time for me, as I start to train my replacement.  I ask each of you to take some time to attend meetings and to help volunteer with PTO activities and planning.  Without you, we cannot survive and we cannot be a PARENT teacher organization.  Your involvement is vital to our success this year and beyond.  If you’re not sure how you can help, please ask.  There is plenty to do throughout the school year.  I know that it’s tough to find time to help, trust me…I work a full time job and then some, while raising two boys, a family, sports, and homework, but I know that my time spent being involved in my sons’ PTOs has helped shape them and made me visible to their teachers and school staff.  I highly encourage you to become involved this year and make a difference in your child’s learning experience. – Sincerely, Heather
