Five Hawks PTC – 2018/19 School Year

Welcome and thanks for checking out our page! The Five Hawks PTC is a team of parent volunteers. We host fundraisers, events, and programs throughout the year. Our goals are to provide needed funding, promote school spirit, help and support staff, and create a strong Five Hawks community through parent involvement.

One of the purposes of a PTC is to raise money for needs that directly benefit our students. Our school has needs that without the PTC would otherwise go unfunded. Recent purchases include our rebuilding and enhancing our outdoor learning center, new drinking fountains, outdoor playground equipment, media center furniture, recess cart and equipment, art display boards, golf equipment, Phy Ed scooters, and STEM activities. Every year, each teacher, grade level, and specialists receive PTC money. We pay for a large portion of our ESTEM Education, as well as all class-level field trip transportation.

To achieve our financial goal, we are committed to NOT send home a bunch of order form fundraisers! Instead, our fall Read-A-Thon is our primary fundraiser. We also have our Silver Graphics Art Fundraiser, Family Restaurant Nights, and Family Fun Night on Saturday, March 9th. We continue to run a strong General Mills Box Tops Program as well. Start clipping and turn in Box Tops throughout the year. We appreciate your support of these events!

The other, and equally important part of the PTC, is volunteering. We need your help with our programs and events. Please watch for SeeSaw posts to sign up for event volunteer opportunities. Our Family Fun Night in March is our biggest volunteer event of the year…please mark your calendars! And please don’t think you have to attend PTC Meetings to be an active member! We are in need of event and program leads – contact us to talk more about how you can help when it works for YOU! Thank you!

We love our fabulous Staff at Five Hawks and partner with them constantly through the year – from creating the Student Directory and Yearbook, to providing volunteers for staff-led events, to various teacher appreciation efforts. We are all part of the Five Hawks family.

A full list of PTC events, including our monthly meeting agendas and minutes, can be found on the right-hand sidebar.
 Please consider attending a meeting. It’s a great way to meet other parents. We will have a parenting topic and/or a grade level highlight in each meeting, so it’s also a solid parenting resource.

We cannot be successful without your help and participation!  Everything we do is to benefit our kids and Five Hawks.  We look forward to meeting you and seeing you throughout the school year!
