Message from PTO Co-Chairs 

Our names are Mia Posada and Robyn Plotsker and we are excited to be the Heilicher PTO co-chairs for the 2019-20 school year. 
Mia's children are Jesse, an incoming sixth grader, as well as Heilicher graduates Nathan, a freshman at Blake and Ruthie, a senior at St. Louis Park High School. 
Robyn's children are Dalia, an incoming third grader, and Evan, an incoming kindergartener. 
Throughout the year, there are many school events that can't happen without the help of volunteers. We hope each family will help us in some way, so these events can be successful.  Please keep an eye out for a list of volunteer needs at the upcoming back to school events, as well as through email and the Heilicher Hallway Chat on Facebook. 
Please be sure to mark your calendar with events happening during the next few weeks: 
  • Thursday, August 22 at 6:45 p.m. - the Heilicher Summer Social, at the field at the bottom of the Sabes JCC parking lot. Join us for an all-school get-together to see friends before school starts.
