Home and School Association

For decades, the Home and School Association has provided parents with the opportunity to enrich our students' experience at Tower Hill through a wide variety of volunteer efforts. There is something for everyone! We can find the right fit for your time, talents and interests. Some of our Home and School committees raise money, which helps fund classroom and campus requests. Other committees provide important services, such as leading school tours, supporting arts programs and providing support for our teachers. Parents can help as a baker, decorator, fundraiser, organizer and much, much more!

However you choose to share your time, it will be truly valued by students, faculty/staff and other volunteers. Furthermore, what you will gain in return is priceless - rewarding relationships with other parents and teachers, and a more informed perspective on school life.
