Parent and Community Involvement


The Parents and Teachers of the Heights Parent/Teacher Association are dedicated to supporting the students and faculty in whatever way they can.  Funds earned are used to provide grants to teachers for needed supplies and other expenditures. Parents are encouraged to join and participate in the PTA. Monthly meetings are held during the school year.


The School Advisory Council is a group of school personnel, parents, and community members who are involved in making decisions about the academic and financial programs of the school. The council meets periodically during the school year, and additional meetings are scheduled as needed.


Heights Volunteers are the BEST! Parent and community volunteers have provided numerous hours of support and assistance to the students and teachers. For the past 20 years, Heights has received the Golden School Award for its outstanding volunteer and mentoring program. Some of our senior citizen volunteers are winter visitors who have found a special place of service at Heights Elementary during their visit to Fort Myers. Please submit an electronic application if you are interested in serving as a Heights volunteer.  Karen Wood is the point of contact for Heights volunteers.
