Welcome to the Hiawatha Elementary

Parent Teacher Organization

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.
