PTA Information


Dear Indian Hills families, 

THANK YOU for your amazing support of our two winter fundraisers. We collected an amazing number of donations for both The Neighborhood House and Toys for Tots. The Toys for Tots box was filled to overflowing, and Nikki Johnson's garage is now filled to overflowing with donations for The Neighborhood House. =) It was especially sweet to hear stories of kids who went through their toys for items to donate, and it was so fun to see families taking pictures in front of the gingerbread house in the lobby. Thank you for your kind and generous hearts. Our Indian Hills community is truly outstanding. 

Winter Singing: The annual winter singing concert will be held on Friday at 11:45 a.m. in the auditorium. This wonderful tradition has allowed the students to sing songs celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, winter, peace, and even hot chocolate. =) This concert is a winter celebration primarily designed for students, but parents are welcome to come listen in.


No Meetings in December -- No SCC, BOOT, or PTA meetings in December. Merry Christmas to us. 


Thank you! 

Lisa & Jamie
