Wishing all our Closter PTO families and teachers a very happy holiday season! We are so grateful for our wonderful community of Closter families and Closter Schools teachers, administrators, and staff.

As you do your holiday shopping, please consider supporting the Closter PTO while shopping through Amazon Smile. When you shop using AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of eligible purchases to the Closter PTO. By selecting the "Closter Parent Teacher Organization" as your charity, you are helping us to continue providing high quality enrichment programs, supplies, technology, and more to Closter students while you shop.

CLICK HERE for the AmazonSmile Closter PTO Link to sign up and shop!

There is NO extra cost for you to sign up, and we appreciate you forwarding the link to family and friends. Once you sign up, you do need to go to smile.amazon.com to shop. 

Thank you in advance for supporting the Closter PTO. Happy Shopping!

While we're on the topic of shopping, do you shop at Stop & Shop? Please join the Stop & Shop A Plus Rewards Program, which is FREE and lets you support Closter Public Schools while you shop for groceries. It's easy to sign up:

1. Visit stopandshop.com/register and create an account

2. Go the A+ page found under "my Stop & Shop card" in the purple bar.

3. Follow the instructions to enter our school ID: 40238. The school is listed as Hillside Elementary, but proceeds from this program benefit both Closter Public Schools (Hillside Elementary and Tenakill Middle Schools).

4. Start shopping to earn money for our school!


There is a lot happening before the year ends! Please see our upcoming events and deadlines below.

Hillside Holiday Boutique
Thu, Dec 08, 2016
Hillside Elementary School

Please join us for the Closter PTO's second annual Hillside Holiday Boutique. Hillside students will be visiting the gift shop with their classes on Wednesday and Thursday, December 7th and 8th. Parents/guardians are welcome to join if you'd like - please see the Class Visit schedule at the link below.

Our Holiday Boutique gives children the opportunity to shop for their own gifts for family and friends for the upcoming holiday season, teaching them valuable budgeting skills and fostering their independence while allowing them to participate in the "Joy of Giving" and supporting our schools. Please be sure to send in CASH for your children to purchase gifts at the Holiday Boutique on the day their class visits - a flyer and envelope was sent home in their backpacks.
