Our mission is to enrich the experiences of our students, parents and teachers. We will support and speak on behalf of our children. We will contribute to needed resources and programs to the school, teachers and students. We encourage parent involvement.

Join the PTA

Membership is only $15 per person. We encourage both parents to join. Over half of each $15 membership goes directly to Hamilton School.

Donations (beyond the membership fee)are welcome. 100% of your donation goes to Hamilton School.

Help the Hamilton PTA sponsor needed projects at Hamilton School by becoming a PTA member.
You can get PTA Membership/Donation envelopes in the school office or download the form here:

Note: Joining the PTA does not obligate you to attend PTA meetings or vote on PTA issues (although we encourage you to do both and PTA members can vote at meetings).

PTA meetings are held every other month. See the Calendar for dates and times. All PTA meeting are held in the school library. All parents are invited to attend the meetings, and PTA membership is not required to attend. Childcare is provided for each meeting.
Each year parents and staff volunteer their free time to help support and enrich the education of all students through service to the Hamilton PTA.

The greatest pleasure of contributing to PTA is being able to help fund programs and purchase necessary equipment. We all know the state of the school budget is getting tighter with each year. Without the support of PTA, our students would go without many essentials and would certainly be lacking in the area of the enriching parts of education.

Throughout the year, PTA conducts many fundraisers including the “Have A Heart” Dinner & Auction. It’s wonderful to see our school community pull together for the betterment of our school. The event typically raises over $40,000 annually for our school.
