Back to School Checklist

Be ready for a great year at Spring Hill Elementary, stay informed and get involved in our PTO community!  Here are the important links to get you started on the right paw.  

STEP 1 – Join the PTO & Stay Informed

We invite every family to be a part of the PTO. With your $20 annual dues, you’ll receive a copy of our printed school directory, access to the online directory, priority registration and discounts on after school programs, and discounts on select PTO-sponsored events and programs. Visit our PTO Shop to register and pay your dues.

Social media and email are the PTO’s primary means of communication. Be sure to follow us on Facebook(@SpringHillPTO), Instagram(@springhillelepto), and Twitter (@PtoSpring). The Spring Hill PTO Newsletter “The Scoop” is sent by MailChimp every Tuesday during the school year and occasional PTO email blasts are sent via our online directory AtoZConnect.

Sign up for PTO communications. Visit the PTO website at and follow the instructions on our homepage to subscribe to our emails. 

Accept emails from AtoZConnect and MailChimp. Please add these vendors as valid communication channels.  If you have not received The Scoop or an email from AtoZ regarding data validation within the first 2 weeks of school, please check your SPAM folder and accept these emails to receive future communications.

STEP 2 – Donate to the Panther Fund

Where FCPS funding ends, Spring Hill families leap in! DONATE TODAY!

The Panther Fund is Spring Hill PTO’s direct donation fundraiser that allows our community to sponsor programs and make investments that enhance our children’s educational experience.  In the past, we’ve invested in items such as laptops for every student, leveled reading textbooks, and musical instruments. We also sponsor programs such as cultural arts presentations, field trips, and STEM programming. These are not funded by the county, but we believe they are important benefits for our children.
