Our Mission

The mission of the Hannah Elementary School PTO is to promote activities and programs that enhance the educational and social atmosphere within the school community. We encourage collaboration between teachers, staff, parents, guardians, and the general community to give every student the highest advantage in education.


Come to a meeting

Got great ideas? Come to a meeting -- participate as much or as little as you choose. Observers welcome!

We meet the second Tuesday of every month at 6:30 p.m. in the Hannah Elementary Library. Meetings typically run about an hour and are open to all adult members of the Hannah Elementary community.

If you’re interested in getting a sense of a typical meeting, please explore agendas and meeting minutes in the Resources area.
