The Big Hollow Parent-Teacher Organization is a 501(c)3 charity designed to work together with Big Hollow School District 38 teachers, staff, parents, students, and community members. We provide educational, social, and cultural experiences for our students through various events, activities, and fundraisers. Each year, Big Hollow PTO provides funds and grants for teachers and staff to purchase additional teaching aids, books, technology enhancements and extended classroom experiences to enliven and enrich our children’s education.


PTO Retirement Event
Big Hollow families are invited to help us say good-bye to some wonderful teachers and staff members who will be retiring at the end of this school year on Wednesday, May 20 from 4:00 to 6:00 pm in the Middle School Cafeteria. Students, parents, teachers, and staff will be able to visit with our honored guests and write a memory to be placed in a special book for each. Our event will honor:

  • Mrs. Schneider, Elementary PE Teacher
  • Mrs. Sullivan, Special Education Teacher
  • Mrs. Cosman, 2nd grade Teacher
  • Mrs. Pinto, Special Education Teacher

Our PTO will provide cake, water, and lemonade. We are also looking for our generous Big Hollow families to help support this event through the donation of store-bought cookies, cupcakes, brownies, or other easily served dessert items.
Please sign up to donate dessert items for the retirement event via an online link which will help our PTO get a better sense of the amount of items expected for the evening.
