Membership News
We are looking for 300 students' parents.

We currently have 94 members who joined or renewed the membership - just shy of our October goal of 100. Thank you. The parents of 59 students in 46 families have joined this year's PTA family, as well as 10 staff and faculty, and 3 members of the community. This means we are not connected to the families of almost 300 students in our school.

Please join our community.

Having a student at Capitol Hill is not a requirement. Are you homeschooling this year, but still want to be part of our community, you can. Please join us

Volunteer Opportunities
Bottle Drop Neighbor

Do you want to volunteer from the comfort of your couch? Or while walking your dog in your neighborhood? We are looking for 5 volunteers to be bottle drop neighbors.

Distribute blue bags for bottle collection to your neighbors' front porch or have them pick up the bags at your front porch - both socially distant of course.
