The Hatch Elementary Parent Teacher Organization was formed to help fill the gaps in our children's education caused by state budget cuts for public education. The Hatch PTO provides music, classroom supplies, field trips, art, PE, library, HEAL, Amity Interns and more. To fund all these Enrichment Programs for the 2017-2018 school year, we need to raise $150,000. We greatly appreciate your help!
Thanks for supporting our schools!
