Enhance Students’ Experiences
The PTA offers a variety of curriculum enhancements; after-school programs, book room support; library volunteers; PE liaison; class commemorative book donations to library; science fair and docents; academic scholarships; art docents and gallery night; Reflections program. If you’re already a Maywood Hills family, there’s a good chance you and your children have already enjoyed one of these programs.
This year will have a specific focus on the outdoor play experience on campus, including the field and playground.
As always, the PTA cares about our community and we know that students can thrive when they can focus on their education. To help those who might need a little extra support, we offer volunteers for social services such as the breakfast club, emergency preparedness support, and health checks. And scholarships to help access enrichment activities when needed.
Support Teachers and Staff
The PTA uses your support to help fund teacher grants, to supplement their needs in the classroom. Each teacher receives an amount and we work with them to fulfill their requests.
We provide volunteers in the classroom and you can often find PTA members volunteering in the teacher work room creating worksheets or organizing paperwork for teachers. We also take pride in showing the staff our appreciation with monthly meals and snacks, usually with a fun theme. We help create and pack the Back-to-School Kid Mail, support teachers as they manage Field Day and interact directly with the staff liaison on board of directors.
Partner with Families and Community
The Maywood Hills PTA welcomes all families and we value diverse perspectives to help drive the direction of the PTA. This year we are funding all PTA memberships, so anyone who wants to join can join for free.
The PTA funds and organizes events throughout the school year to bring students, teachers, staff and parents together. From ice cream socials to first day of school welcomes to holiday events, the PTA is hard at work creating fun social gatherings to enjoy. We also sponsor the family BBQ, help with book fair and the very popular Festival of Cultures.
We will provide a welcoming atmosphere at meetings and provide more “working-parent-friendly” volunteer opportunities. We work with Staff Liaisons to represent teachers & staff, provide translation services to Spanish-speaking families, and drive the Watch D.O.G.S. dads on campus program.
The PTA does our best to keep our members up to date. We have a Facebook Page, a monthly newsletter, our reader board in front of the school and now an Instagram account. We also offer our members a printed directory to promote communication among families at Maywood Hills.
