Welcome to the Hiawatha Elementary
Parent Teacher Organization

Hiawatha PTO supports the students and Staff of Hiawatha Elementary.

We are a Parent-Teacher Organization, or PTO. As a parent or person affiliated with the school, you are already a member!  (Unlike a PTA, there are no dues to be a part of this organization.)

We welcome your input, suggestions, and volunteerism!

Studies show that KIDS with involved parents DO BETTER in School!

Learn what is happening “behind the scenes” at school.

Help us provide recognition and special activities for the whole school and staff.

Volunteer with Hiawatha PTO!

District Volunteer Application

We are so glad that you would like to be involved in your student’s education! 

You must fill out the district’s online volunteer application three days before volunteering. Click Here.

Only online applications are accepted.  Volunteer applications need to be renewed every year.
