The PTO has a number of fundraisers planned for the year that you can help with. Funds collected go to support various needs in the school that can not be met by traditional budgets.

Kroger Earning Plus Learning - be sure to get your scan sheet (available at and have it scanned with your Plus card to get credit for Hilsman whenever you shop at Kroger
Publix- Coming soon, we will have a similar scan card for use at Publix
Pampered Chef - Items will be on display at Open House. All profits will go to the Hilsman PTO
Cookie Dough - A great holiday item, the PTO will do a joint fundraiser with the band in November
Box Tops for Education - Bring in your Box top labels from General Mills Brand foods. Bring them to your homeroom - the class with the most coupons will win a pizza party.

Still to come: We will be adding more info about other school clubs and activities to the website as they become available. We will also have an updated teacher email list. There is a list from last year on our website that has many of the teachers and staff but none of the new ones.
