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 access to our online school directory, and receive discounts on select programs like Chess Club. Visit our PTO Shop to register and pay your dues.

Email is the PTO’s primary means of communication.  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

The PTO will continue to operate this year and support our teachers and the school community.  We are requesting donations of $100 per student, however any and all financial support will be accepted.

Does your employer offer Corporate Matching? If you donate to the Panther Fund many businesses will match those contributions dollar for dollar.  Please visit our website at > Support > Corporate Matching for more details. 

Spring Hill PTO is a 501(c)(3) non-profit entity so your donation is 100% tax-deductible.
