Not much time, but could make some phone calls? Activity Night Planner is for you! This person contacts local businesses like Skyzone and Rollerama to schedule exclusive Hilton Family nights.

We are also looking for a few parents who love landscaping/gardening to help with our gardens and outdoor classroom.

And much more! Our PTO does so many amazing things! If you’re interested in one of these or another position, please email hiltonpto@gmail.com for more info!

Hilton Recycling Program

Hilton receives money for recycled paper! There is a green dumpster outside the school located next to Hilton Road. Every Friday, Ms. Michael’s class collects recycled paper throughout the school and places it in the dumpster. You can donate also! But only paper please (no cardboard or phone books). It is an easy way for our school to earn money while teaching students how to protect the environment!

Kroger Shoppers

Hilton is now enrolled in the Kroger Rewards Program. Please support the school by linking Hilton Elementary to your Kroger Rewards Card. Hilton’s number is 68151 or you can just type the school’s name in the search window at https://www.kroger.com/communityrewards.

Amazon Smile

How fun would it be to shop, while at the same time, earning money for our school? Amazon Smile (https://smile.amazon.com) is through Amazon.com, in which they donate money for most items purchased through their website. The fun part is that the website keeps a running total on your account to see how much money you donate to

the school just by shopping with them. Check out this 30 second video to see how you can add a shortcut to your (mobile) home screen to ensure all your Amazon purchases benefit Hilton Elementary https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bWgglu7ZCDE.

Coca Cola/Powerade Give

Attention all Coca Cola and Powerade drinkers! Another way to earn money for Hilton Elementary is through the Coca Cola Give Program. By collecting Coca Cola caps and and codes, Hilton can earn money to purchase supplies for physical education, sports, technology and/or arts. Most Coca-Cola beverages that have a product code under its cap, or printed on its paper packaging, are eligible to be used for donation. Here is a link to the reference list of participating brands https://us.coca-cola.com/participating-brands. Please collect these clean items in a plastic bag and send to school with your child. There is a drawer in the office for collections.
