PTA Board 2017-2018

We were thrilled to elect our PTA Board for the 2017-18 school year: Co-Presidents, Lisa Deily and Joana Figueiredo; Vice President, Stephanie Shipley; Secretary, Emily Loney; and Treasurer, Kavitha Peters. Thank you to our Nominating Committee for their hard work and congratulations to the new board. 


PTA Award Winners

The Sunny Hills PTA Award winners were recognized: April Miklautsch (Outstanding Advocate), Lindsey Hatch and Kina Yukish (Golden Acorn), and Sue Schoot and Tori Sylvers (Outstanding Educators).  Thank you for the work that you do for ALL children. We truly appreciate it, and are so lucky to have you in our community!

 


Student Outreach Program

The Student Outreach program helps Sunny Hills families that need extra assistance. Currently, there is an immediate need for grocery/gas gift cards. The Safeway "From the Heart" gift card is a good option because it can be used to purchase groceries and/or gas, but not alcohol or tobacco. Any grocery/gas card is great though! You may sign up for the grocery/gas card via the google doc by clicking here.

 
If you'd like to be contacted in the future when a specific need arises for a Sunny Hills family, please click on this google doc:
 
 
By signing up, you will simply be notified should a need arise and you can then determine if you are able to help.
 
Thank you for being a part of this kind and generous community!
 
Should you have any questions, feel free to contact Cami Blumenthal, camlynnrb@yahoo.com.
