Thank you to the 30 families who have contributed to our Playground Installation project so far. As of the end of February, we have a little over $2,000 already! Remember, the PTO will fund the bulk of the project, but we are about $6,000 short. Please consider helping us pull together to make this a reality for our students. Thank you for continuing to keep those donation envelopes rolling in!
NEW PLAYGROUND SET FOR HILLSIDE – THE PTO NEEDS YOUR HELP!
The Hillside PTO has gained approval for the purchase and installation of a brand new playground set that will be installed in Summer 2015! This set will replace the piece on the lower playground.
The new piece of equipment includes something for everyone — 5 play decks, 3 slides, several climbing pieces, a rock wall and much more! Imagine how much fun it will be for the kids!
HOW MUCH DOES THIS COST?
The cost of the new playground equipment (including installation) is approximately $25,000. The PTO has raised funds, thanks to the Hillside community’s generous support, which have been allocated for the equipment. As it stands, we need an additional $6,000 from Hillside families to fully fund the project. This will be a gift to the school and Hillside community from the Hillside families and Hillside PTO. The playground equipment is NOT funded by the school district.
HOW CAN YOUR FAMILY HELP?
Please consider making a tax deductible donation to help make this playground dream a reality! Three easy ways to contribute:
- Write a check, payable to Hillside PTO. (Please note “Playground” in the memo.) Send it in an envelope in your child’s backpack, or drop it off at the school office.
- Make a secure online donation here.
- Corporate matching doubles your donation! Check with your company HR representative to see if your company matches donations. The Hillside PTO’s EIN number is 237053574, which will be needed for the match form.
Did you know…If every Hillside family contributes just $20, we will have this project fully funded, and the kids will be playing on it in September!
Thank you for your generosity and support!
