STRESS FREE FUNDRAISER: The stress-free fundraiser is BACK, now with PAPERLESS and CONTACT-FREE payment options! The PTA is working hard to deliver fun events and activities for the kids this year, while adhering to social distancing and safety guidelines.

YEAR END THANKS: As we come to year end, Ivy Hill PTA wants to thank all of our wonderful volunteers who found a way to be extra creative this year. We also want to thank our 5th grade families who will be leaving our Ivy community and wish them well. We have a special gift for our 5th grade chairs to be delivered next week. Thank you to the Ivy staff and teachers for your hard work, creativity and flexibility this year. We appreciate it all. To the teachers leaving us this year. Thank you for your years at Ivy.
