    As a parent or guardian of a Capitol Hill student, YOU are a member of the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). That means, with your partnership, we can create a strong community supporting all of our students and teachers. 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. 
    • Uniting the Capitol Hill Community through support for school wide, grade level and interest based activities, events and programs.



Support the PTO

  • Ways you can support PTO and get a tax deduction.

    Our goal is to make fundraising simple, flexible, and budget friendly for all families. 

    The more we are able to raise funds through direct donations, the fewer fundraiser events we must host; therefore freeing our time and efforts to support the school and students with more educational services and experiences.  

    1. Direct Drive - Our annual drive to gather donations directly! Contributions may be made by check or through using your credit card by clicking here. 100% of the dollars raised go directly to support teachers and students at Capitol Hill. 
    2. Volunteer opportunities - PTO supports various events throughout the year that need volunteers. Please click here to see a list of current volunteer spots that are available.  If you are interested but do not know how to help or if you have an idea of your own, email us!
