Join the PTA

We invite YOU to join. All are welcome.

The PTA is for every Genesee Hill family. The PTA is for moms, dads, caregivers, teachers, grandparents, alumni, and the broader community.

Our Genesee Hill PTA works to provide essential educational resources, speak up on important issues, and build a strong and welcoming school community. 

This past year the PTA supplied every Genesee Hill student with school supplies, provided teachers with funds to set up their classrooms, funded teacher professional development and school-wide support in the area of STEAM, and so much more.

Membership in the PTA is $15 and can involve as much or as little time as you have to offer. Whether you contribute your time, your voice, or your $15 membership fee – now, more than ever, we need community support. There’s no wrong way to PTA!
