PTO & Volunteering
Parents, in addition to teachers, play a major role in their child’s education. The purpose of the PTO is to bring parents and teachers together to provide the best educational opportunities possible and to work toward creating the best educational environment both at school and at home.
PTO meetings will be held on the third Thursday of each month at 2:20 at Fox Hollow School. We would like to invite all parents of Fox Hollow students to attend PTO meetings. We encourage your suggestions.
The PTO has a variety of committees and they sponsor several events that require parent help. If you can help, please contact your child’s teacher or a PTO officer.

Please consider helping out with any of our activities. We can use any and all help that we can get, so even if you can only come for one hour at one activity that’s still GREAT!!

What are the rewards of volunteering? What is it that makes it worthwhile to take time out of busy schedules to help out at school? Parents report the following benefits of volunteering:
- Firsthand Knowledge about the School: Volunteering gives you the opportunity to meet teachers and observe what happens at school. You can then evaluate what your child says (and what other parents tell you) based on your own impressions.
- A Sense of Belonging: Volunteering connects you to the place where your child spends many hours each day.
- Social Opportunities: Volunteers meet other parents and make new friends. Sometimes it is difficult to get to know people in your neighborhood.
- A Sense of Achievement: Volunteering can produce tangible rewards, such as watching a child you tutor grasp a math concept or seeing the new computer purchased with grocery receipts.
- Appreciation from your child: Children like to see visible signs that you care. They enjoy seeing you relate to school staff members. It helps them link home and school.
- Reinforcing the Importance of School: By spending time on school activities, you are letting students know that school is important – you want them to work hard and achieve success.
