Capitol Hill PTO is a shared effort between parents, guardians, faculty, and staff at Capitol Hill Magnet School that supports our school with financial contributions and any number of volunteer efforts in the classroom and school-wide.
PTO VALUES STATEMENT: With students and teachers at the center of everything we do, we will support excellence and well-rounded programming that builds the academic achievement and community fabric of our school.
We support these values in two critical ways:
- Providing resources for students, teachers and classrooms through direct funds that support classroom and grade level activities and supplies; and,
- Uniting the Capitol Hill Community through support for school wide, grade level and interest based activities, events and programs.
We ask that each family support their student(s) and the Capitol Hill community with a direct contribution of $100 per student. This is a suggested amount; the amount you give is up to you! A gift of any amount that is meaningful to your family is greatly appreciated and will help tremendously. If a single, lump sum donation is not an ideal fit for your family, you can also choose to give in weekly, monthly, or quarterly installments. What is most important is that each family make a donation that works with their family budget.
The money we raise goes straight back to teachers and students — Capitol Hill PTO uses the funds to support experiences, activities, and resources like these:
Field Trips * Field Trip Transportation * Band and Orchestra Equipment & Instruments * MIA: Art Adventure * Grandparents Day * African American Parent Involvement Day * Word Masters Competition * National Geographic Bee * National History Day * Spelling Bee * Puppeteering Residency * Classroom Enhancements & Supplies * Classroom Library Books * Mock Trial * Family Directory * Yoga & Mindfulness PE Curriculum * Doing Good Together * Physics Force * Lego Team * Continental Math League Competition * American Mathematics Competition * Middle School Math League
In addition to supporting your own student’s involvement Capitol Hill, PTO funds are also used to support under-represented and underserved students at Capitol Hill and aims to remove financial and cultural barriers. With that in mind, we ask that if you can, please consider sponsoring another Capitol Hill student. Your gift is 100% tax deductible.
Thank you ahead of time for all you do to make our Capitol Hill community strong!
