President's Message

The Long Hill Township Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), is a vibrant and engaged group of parents and teachers committed to making learning and working in the Long Hill Township school district a rewarding and fulfilling experience. This commitment is consistently demonstrated by the numerous PTO-sponsored activities and events throughout the year. Cultural Art assemblies, Visiting Authors, Environmental Day, International Day, 4th grade Science Fair, Colonial Day, Medieval Day and Victorian Day are just a few of the many ways the PTO works together with the teachers and staff to enhance our students’ experiences.

For our teachers and staff, PTO support also helps in the classroom. We fund school improvements by purchasing equipment and supplies used to enhance student learning in the classroom. During the 2017-2018 school year, we approved requests over $44,000 for book collections for our libraries, equipment to enhance the STEAM program, classroom items intended to help younger students with organization, playground equipment, band equipment cabinets, and much more.

The upside to the many activities and events we sponsor is the opportunity to be involved. Whether you are a new parent or a seasoned veteran, we hope that you will jump right in and volunteer in our school community. Parents are the heart of our schools and without your help, our events can’t happen. We have proven that by working together, we can truly make a difference in the schools and in the lives of our children and our teachers.

How you can help:

1. Volunteer for PTO-sponsored activities. We could not run so many programs without the support of our volunteers.

2. Attend PTO meetings and stay informed by reading the monthly meeting agenda or the meeting minutes. This information can be found on the PTO website. The PTO general meetings are a great way to meet people and to find out how to participate and volunteer in the PTO activities and events.

3. Support PTO-sponsored fundraisers. Because we offer a variety of fundraisers and ALL participation is optional, please support those which make you most comfortable.

We look forward to you joining us for an exciting new year!
