Welcome Fellow Black Hawk Families!

On behalf of the BHHS PTO, we welcome new and returning families for the 2020.2021 school year! Like our students and teachers, PTO is also operating remotely - looking forward to when we can be in-person again. In either situation, PTO is here to be a resource for all of our school community.

BHHS PTO is organized for the purpose of supporting student education at BHHS by fostering relationships among the school, parents/guardians and teachers. We assist with school events, support staff and enhance communication between families and administrators about activities and initiatives. 

We hope that you will enjoy being part of BHHS PTO and get involved throughout the year. Even in a remote environment, PTO is working to support enrichment of the curriculum, fund educational grants, show staff appreciation and provide for special events for all grade levels. 

PTO monthly meetings are mainly informative. Principal Charlie Hollerith is always available to provide updates and discussion of current happenings, and key speakers address important topics each month. 

We meet monthly on Mondays (except December) - virtually for the time being. There are evening as well as morning sessions, so we hope you find a convenient time to join us.
