FAQ about PTO

  • How can I get involved?

    There are so many ways to get involved at Capitol Hill! Contact ptochair.capitolhill@gmail.com to find out about volunteer opportunities (many do not require daytime committments), or let us know about a special skill you can share. Ask classroom teachers about chaperoning field trips, helping in the classroom, or special projects. Come to a PTO meeting and find out about what’s going on at the school.  Participate in the many school events during the year where you can meet other families and have fun. 

    Does Capitol Hill have a Family Directory?

    Yes! Thanks to fantastic parent volunteers, we have a secure, on-line directory though MySchoolAnywhere.com. The directory will be paperless to save on printing costs and to ensure that the information is as up-to-date as possible. It will be available on your computer/tablet/smart phone. Directory sign-ups will be available at the open house on September 1, 2016. Teachers will send information about the directory to families in September as well. You can sign up or edit your existing info by going to join.myschoolanywhere.com and using the join code: CapitolHillDirectory.

    How can I receive regular updates about what’s happening at Capitol Hill?

    You will recieve a weekly e-newsletter, The Headliner, from Principal Patrick Bryan every other week. If you do not receive it, please contact Grace Raymond at grace.raymond@spps.org. You can also join the Capitol Hill Friends and Families Facebook group, where school events and information are often posted. Some classroom teachers, and grade-level teams also put out a regular newsletter, check in with your child’s teacher.  If you participate in the PTO Family Directory, you will also receive updates from the PTO regarding events, fundraisers, and volunteer opportunities.
