Kenwood “Help Us Grow” (HUG) PTO is a parent-run volunteer organization.
Events and activities along with classroom materials that benefit each Kenwood student, in addition to school improvements, are coordinated through the time and efforts of parents, teachers and staff.
The Kenwood HUG-PTO supports our students and staff in a variety of ways. Working together with Kenwood administrators and teachers, we ensure that teachers have the classroom materials they need, that students have opportunities for cultural enrichment programs and information assemblies are improvements to the school and grounds are made, as needed. In addition, transportation (bus) expenses for all field trips students attend are funded through the HUG-PTO.
Some of our members help as head room parents, by planning and/or participating in classroom parties, chaperoning field trips or working with the classrooms to help the teachers anyway they can. We are also very lucky to have many parents who give some time for fundraisers, dances, movie nights, the holiday shop, yearbook, field day and even school beautification. Many of our members support us just by attending our meetings and offering their input.
