PTO 2023-24 Direct Appeal

Help us raise money to support Van Hise classrooms, teachers, & families!

Scroll Down to Donate Today!

Dear VHE Community,


The Van Hise Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a volunteer run, non-profit organization committed to enhancing and enriching the education of our children and fostering a sense of community within our school. 


Each year the PTO makes a direct appeal to raise funds that support this mission.

Funds raised from this appeal will give us the opportunity to continue supporting favorite events as well as the ability to introduce new ones. 


Last school year, with your generous contributions we were able to fund a wide range of efforts to support the VHE community, including: 

  • Black Girl Magic Conference

  • New recess equipment

  • School dance

  • Ice cream socials

  • School carnival 

  • Through our school social worker, direct support for VHE families in need

  • More than $5,000 for teacher and staff grants, including supporting the 5th grade end of year celebration and grade-level learning resources 

  • More than $7,000 for teacher and staff stipends

  • Staff appreciation activities


This year, we hope to fund new traditions like providing VHE Hedgie shirts and yearbooks for all students.   

Show your Hedgehog Pride and make a contribution. No donation is too small: all donations, at all levels, are greatly appreciated! If you are in a position to give more, please consider donating for a family who cannot.  If you are unable to give this year, we hope you will join us in volunteering at events or in sharing your ideas for our community at our monthly meetings.





Although we welcome donations throughout the year (and our links remain active), we hope to reach our fundraising goal by Giving Tuesday on November 28th.
