How the PTO helps Hatch!

PTO fundraising efforts offer a wide variety of benefits to the Hatch community:

Assemblies: The PTO pays for special assemblies such as Opera for the Young that enrich your child's overall academic experience.

Buses for Field Trips:  The PTO funds the cost of all buses for field trips.

Classroom Subscriptions:  The PTO pays for classroom enrichment subscriptions such as Brain Pop & Time Magazine.

Conference / PTO Meeting Babysitting: The PTO provides babysitting services during Parent / Teacher conferences and during PTO meetings as a convenience for parents and to enable both parents to attend.

Hatch After Hours (HAH): An after-school enrichment program providing classes featuring fun and challenging academic, athletic and artistic activities.

Oak Park Educational Foundation:  The PTO supports the OPEF in providing programs that directly benefit Hatch including Architecture Adventure (part of Art curriculum) and Geared Up (part of 3rd grade Science curriculum).

Teacher Reimbursements & Thank You Gifts: The PTO provides Hatch teachers a stipend for classroom materials above and beyond what is provided by the district.  We also provide a teacher luncheon during conferences and an end of year gift to compensate for out of pocket expenses.

Teacher Requests: The PTO sets aside a portion of its budget to fund additional teacher requests which may include instructional materials, enrichment programs and new classroom amenities that improve the overall classroom environment.  These are voted on at the monthly PTO meetings.

World Language: The PTO sponsors a program during which students have the opportunity to learn Spanish, German, French or Chinese two times a week during the lunch hour.
