What is our Parent Teacher Organization?


The Hillcrest Academy PTO is organized for the purpose of supporting the education of the students at Hillcrest by:

  1. Fostering relationships among the school, parents, teachers and community members.
  2. Enhancing educational, recreational, social and cultural opportunities for our students.
  3. Acting as a communication and resource tool for parents and teachers

The Hillcrest PTO is active in supporting the faculty, staff, and students through fundraisers like our historic apple fritter booth at the Kalona Fall Festival, bake sales, and apparel sales.  We use our funds to supplement classroom budgets and to help provide beyond budget, large ticket items for the school.

The Hillcrest PTO is open to any Hillcrest parent/guardian, host parent, staff/faculty, or invited guest.
