PTA (Parent Teacher Association)


The PTA is a Parent Teacher Association.

The PTA helps you to keep up with what is happening at Flower Hill Elementary and ways for you to support your child's education.

Flower Hill Elementary students learn by growing

Gazette - Sylvia Carignan

Flower Hill Elementary School students can now take their classroom experiments outdoors with the installation of a new garden in the school’s courtyard. Karla Kratovil, the school’s Parent-Teacher-Student Association president, said Flower Hill received a $3,500 grant from Lowe’s, which it will use for the garden. The school’s first-graders have planted the vegetable beds, where broccoli, spinach, carrots and peas are growing.
