Volunteer Opportunities

One of the most important contributions you can make in support of the PTO is to volunteer some of your time. The help we provide allows us the opportunity to participate in our children's education in support of John Hole teachers and staff. Opportunities are available throughout the year to support fundraising events, but also to work directly with the students. You could volunteer as an academic volunteer, café monitor, IMC (library) assistant, homeroom parent or classroom helper.

We are respectful of your time and appreciate any amount of time you can give.  To volunteer, please email us at

Message from our Principal

On behalf of the students and staff of Dr. John Hole Elementary, I would like to welcome you to our school team. We are very lucky to have such a committed, supportive group of parents as a part of our PTO. The success of our school depends on the collaborative relationship between students, staff and parents. The Dr. John Hole PTO has always been a huge support to the students, school and school district through their dedication of time, effort and resources. I hope and encourage you to find ways to get involved with this fantastic Parent Teacher Organization.

How does the PTO support our school?

Throughout the school year, the John Hole PTO plans programs and events to raise funds to support the teachers, staff and school. Our primary events require many volunteers and your support and contributions make them successful.

Any money raised by the PTO is directly returned to the school and classroom teachers to positively influence the learning environment. Teachers have limited budgets for the extras that make classrooms fun and interactive. That is why our PTO solidly supports the financial investment in our teachers' ability to deliver more to our children!

School Store

Image of items in John Hole school store

The School Store is for students to buy school supplies during recess. It is run by the PTO and the money earned benefits the school, students and staff. It is open roughly once every other week from 10:45am to 12:15pm.

The store carries folders, notebooks, paper, rulers, scissors, glue, pencils, pencil pouches, lead, erasers, pens, markers, crayons, highlighters, paperclips, and more! Some items are extra fun but still useful, like animal-shaped erasers and giant paper clips. The store does NOT carry items that are primarily toys, gum, or food of any kind. Items are priced from $0.10 to $2.50, with most items being $1 or less.
