This benefit is provided for classroom use and is available to all general education classrooms, specialists (PE, Music, Library), sensory classrooms (K-2 and 3-5) and the Learning Center.  

For questions about the difference between the Staff Grants and the $200 Classroom Funds, please check out this helpful Grants vs Funds document.

To take advantage of this program, all teachers need to do is:

Staff Grants

The HHE PTA provides staff grants for the purpose of enhancing the classroom, enabling instruction, improving school grounds, etc. All teachers and staff at Hollywood Hill Elementary are eligible to apply for a staff grant. Grant items are intended to be used within the requested school year and should be for long lasting classroom/school improvement, not one-time use. Supplies provided by Hollywood Hill or NSD, professional development items and transportation costs are not eligible for staff grants.

Staff grant requests must go through an application process which is held two times per year, one in the fall and another in the spring - Fall 2023 Application Deadline is October 2, 2023.

To apply for a grant, the staff member must submit a grant application to the PTA Grants Committee. After submitting a grant application, the request goes through our grant process which includes review/approval by the principal, grants committee and ultimately the PTA Board.

Staff grant funds should NOT be spent until the grant has been fully approved. In the event of any leftover grant funds, staff should return it to the Hollywood Hill PTA for future grant investment.

For questions about the difference between the Staff Grants and the $200 Classroom Funds, please check out this helpful Grants vs Funds document. If you have questions about your specific situation, please contact the PTA Grants Committee or the PTA President

If you have an enrichment opportunity you would like to see at Hollywood Hill, please reach out to our Enrichment Coordinator. The Enrichments budget is set at the first of the year so please reach out ASAP. If we can't make it work this year, we add it to our budget list for next year.

Staff Favorites

The PTA maintains a list of staff favorites to help families find meaningful gifts for the staff.

The list is also a great place for teachers to list an Amazon Wish List or other crowd source funded projects (e.g. Donors Choose). If you need to update your information on the teachers favorites page, please submit a new form or send any updates to Communications.
