• Welcome to Guilford Hills Elementary PTA 

     

    Message from the President

     
    Megan
    From family nights and book fairs to providing supplies for classrooms, the PTA role at Guilford Hills Elementary is very important. We are fortunate to have an amazing, supportive group of engaged parents, who volunteer in many ways to support our mission.
    We look forward to bringing more after-school activities, curriculum enrichment assemblies and classroom support to enhance the student experience at Guilford Hills for your children.

    I encourage you to join your PTA and to visit the PTA Facebook page for the latest PTA news, events and important information. Research shows that students whose families are involved at school perform better in school. Have a great school year!

    Your PTA President, Megan Dupont
