PTA Nominating Committee

Nominations for the Sunny Hills PTA Executive team are officially open! As a matter of practice, each year the Sunny Hills PTA Nominating Committee reaches out to the community to see if anyone outside of the current Sunny Hills PTA Executive team would like to be considered for a position. Nominees can be considered by the Committee ahead of the March GMM, or nominations are welcome and can be made from the floor during the March GMM. Speaking of the March GMM, please be sure to join us on March 28th, 2023 @ 6:30PM to cast your vote for our 2023/2024 Sunny Hills PTA Executive team! We look forward to seeing you then!

If you are interested in being considered for an SHPTA Executive position, or if you know someone who would be a great fit, please reach out to Lauren Stephenson at for more information.
*Please note that all nominees must be a PTA member for at least 15 days prior to the election date of 3/28/2023.

Art Lab building supply donations

We need your help for a January Project: Pet House Architecture. We will be collecting "building materials" now through the beginning of the year. We need:

  • Bubble wrap
  • Packing peanuts
  • Wrapping paper
  • Tissue paper
  • Small/Medium boxes
  • Aluminum foil
  • Colored/clear clingwrap
  • Rolls (toilet paper, paper towel, wrapping paper)

Please make sure all items are clean and in good condition as little hands will be using these items as building materials. The donation box will be located at the front of the school and named "Art Building Materials."

Art Program

Signups for the second trimester are now open! In January and February we'll have lessons in clay, architecture, collage and watercolor.
