PTA Information


Hello Indian Hills Families!

We hope you had a chance to meet with your student's teacher last week during parent/teacher conferences. It's always a great time to touch base and keep tabs on what's happening at school. 

Coming up --

UEA: Another short week! We have a half day on Wednesday and no school Thursday, Friday, and Monday due to UEA/fall break. Enjoy the time off!

Halloween: Halloween this year falls on a Tuesday. It will also be a half day. The traditional Halloween Costume Parade will take place at the school beginning at 9:00 a.m. Parents are invited to attend and see the spooks as they parade around the school. For a complete description of the parade route as well as school rules/policies regarding costumes, Please see weekly email message for more information.

PTA & SCC Meetings: October's PTA and SCC (school community council) meetings will be held on Wednesday morning. SCC @ 7:30 a.m. in the library and PTA @ 9:00 a.m. in the Discover Club room. All welcome to attend. 

Someone asked us recently, "How do I join PTA?" The answer? "You're in! You've joined!" It's not a formal thing, we assure you. If you have interest in volunteering at the school, or understanding what we do with the Fun Run funds, or have ideas from other schools you've been at, we would love to have you come to the PTA meetings. Or just stop us in the hall! But please, if you have interest then consider yourself a "member" of the PTA. =) 

Fun Run Field Trips: For their amazing efforts with the Fun Run, the students have earned a school-wide field trip to the IMAX theater at Clark Planetarium. K-3 will go Friday, Oct. 27, 8:45-11:30; 4-6 will go Friday, Nov. 3, 8:45-11:30. You will receive more info from your student's teacher. If you would like to be a parent volunteer with your child's class, please reach out to the teacher. 

Reflections Contest: Calling all artists! Reflections is an annual, national PTA art contest. It is also an Excellent Eagle goal for several of the grades. We would love to see your student's creativity reflected in this year's theme: WITHIN REACH. Entries can be in the category of Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, or Visual Arts. Projects are due to Indian Hills School on November 3. Winning entries will advance to regionals. Rules and entry forms can be found on the lobby table or at Contact Aimee Burrows at with any questions. 

Upper Grades Talent Show (4-6): The talent show is rescheduled for Dec. 1. Registration forms will be due Nov. 9, and a lunchtime rehearsal will be held Nov. 16. Students should start brushing up on their acts! (Acts are to be no more than 2 minutes each.)

Donors Choose: From time to time, our teachers create a "Donors Choose" project for their classroom. Donors Choose is the "GoFundMe" of educational projects. Currently, Mrs. Bell (formerly Ms. Rhodes.... a big congratulations to her on her recent wedding!) has a project going for her 4th grade class to improve her classroom book selection. If you have interest in supporting her project, please visit the link: To sweeten the deal, there is a current promotion code "LIFTOFF" which will match individual donations up to $50. This code, however, expires today (Monday). But you can donate to the project any time.
