OUR MISSION

 

The Van Hise PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) engages our school community to enhance classroom learning by providing support through events and projects that benefit students, teachers and families. 

Our goal is to enchance the school experience for all students and families through fundraising, community building, promoting school spirit, and promoting communication within the school community. We strive to:

  • Povide volunteers to support Van Hise Elementary School;

  • Promote fellowship and  communication between children, families, school and community;

  • Stay informed and aware of the programs, purposes and philosophies of the Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) to provide the best education possible for all students;

  • Represent and advocate for the school and students before the school administration, district administration, district committees, and the school board; and

  • Foster efforts among families, students, staff and the general public to meet the needs for all students in their physical, mental and social education.
