2021 - 2022 Welcome Letter to Parents

Welcome to Hominy Valley Elementary School!

This is always an exciting time as we wind down from the summer and prepare for a new school year.  Whether you are a returning parent or a new one, the PTO would like to officially welcome you to Hominy Valley Elementary (HVE) and to the 2021-22 school year!  We have an incredible group of teachers and staff, and a wonderful group of parent volunteers.  You will love being a part of HVE!  PTO has a lot of great things planned and would love your help and involvement.

What does the PTO do?  
The PTO meets every month on the 2nd Monday at 5:30pm via Zoom and we hope to get back to in person meetings this year.  These meetings are an opportunity to meet other parents, discuss a variety of topics such as: What do teachers need more help with, planning for upcoming events, and how the PTO can help to support the school’s initiatives. You can obtain the Zoom meeting ID and passcode by emailing the PTO at HominyValleyPTO@gmail.com

 We are a 501(c)(3) group which allows the PTO to collect funds that are redirected back to support the school, staff and our children.

 Plan, coordinate and volunteer at fundraising events, school & staff appreciations, and family events that help to foster and create community within Hominy Valley. 

 

What can you do?
Please consider joining the PTO! We love volunteers and can never have too many.  The ways you can help are not limited to monthly PTO meetings or volunteering at events.
