Hilltop Elementary School



Hilltop yearbook online sales have closed. If you would like to purchase a yearbook and haven’t done so yet please contact Danielle Kapalko at daniellekapalko@gmail.com.


Our Staff Appreciation Week chair, Rachel Musilli, has been hard at work planning “Wild About You”, our theme this year to remind our staff how appreciated they are

If you signed up to donate supplies or food items, look for an upcoming email from Rachel. If you did not already volunteer to help but wish to, please contact her at rgoremba@yahoo.com.

A Welcome Back Message from Hilltop PTA

We, the Hilltop Parent Teacher Association, want to extend a friendly welcome to all new and returning parents and students! The Hilltop PTA is a diverse, dynamic organization made up of parent volunteers and teachers that are committed to enhancing the Hilltop Elementary School experience for every student and family.

We have been working closely with the school administration where needed and have adjusted our normal procedures. While there will be no volunteers allowed in school at least until the end of 2020, we still invite all families to join the Canfield PTA this year. We feel that this year, more than ever, it is important to support our teachers, students, parents, and administration. We want to be able to keep saying YES when the administration comes to us with a need.


Hilltop needs you! Our initiatives are only successful because of the help from generous PTA Members willing to donate their time and talents, or tangible donations. We always need help at individual events. We are also seeking committed volunteers to take on leadership roles as a chairperson or executive committee member. Please see a complete list of volunteer opportunities for 2020-2021 by clicking on the button below.

If you are interested in being a chairperson, the following committees are in need of a chair. Even if an event is not able to take place due to COVID-19, it would be helpful to have someone in place if we can. Thank you!
