BECOME A MEMBER
Who can join?
PTA is not strictly for the parents of children that attend Hillcrest Elementary. Relatives, teachers and neighbors are all welcome and encouraged to join our PTA organization. Joining the PTA does not require you to attend meetings or volunteer, but if you have the time to spare – we would love to meet you.
What are the benefits of becoming a PTA member?
The number one reason to join the PTA is to benefit your child. In doing so, you also help Hillcrest Elementary. Once you become a member you have voting rights, which means your vote helps determine how PTA funds are used. You also receive a Washington State PTA membership card that allows you to take advantage of benefits from the National PTA as well as the Washington State PTA. Membership cards are valid until the end of the school year.
How does Hillcrest Elementary PTA support my child?
