PTC Events and Activites

The PTC is seeking parents to volunteer and supervise lunch clubs during the winter months. Lunch Clubs meet during each child’s lunch recess block before or after they eat lunch. Grades are combined.  Some materials will be provided, or students can bring favorites from home.

Last year’s offerings included Cards/Games and Open Art Studio.

If you are interested in volunteering please email Tori D’Antonio at for more information.

PIMA Poinsettias and Yankee Candles


Do you plan to purchase poinsettia plants this season? Please consider supporting our 600+ band and orchestra musicians by purchasing them from PIMA. The red premium poinsettias are lush and 15″ tall wrapped in gold foil. They are locally supplied through Phillip’s Flowers in La Grange Park. They only cost $20 and make great gifts! Download an order form and send with payment to Park Jr. High, Attn: PIMA

PIMA Poinsettia Order Form

Along with the poinsettias, our 7th and 8th grade band and orchestra members will be selling Yankee Candle items online to help pay for their spring trip to Louisville, KY! Looking for a secret santa gift or stocking stuffers? All orders are web only and will be delivered directly to the purchaser.

Go to and place your order under GROUP #999985204 (PIMA). If you know of a band/orchestra student going on the trip you’d like to support, confirm with them first that they are going, and then add their name in the seller name field so they get credit.
