Organizations

Home and School Club (HSC)
The Home and School Club is comprised of parents and staff members who volunteer to make a positive difference at Blossom Hill. The mission of the HSC is to:
  • Support the teachers/staff in meeting the educational goals of our children.
  • Help parents feel connected and build a sense of community within the school.
  • Provide resources and activities for learning that enable all students to achieve high standards.
To support these objectives, HSC volunteers plan fundraisers and socials during the school year, whose proceeds are dedicated entirely towards enriching Blossom Hill programs. At Blossom Hill, our parent community has a high standard of excellence and believes in working collaboratively to ensure our students benefit from a well-rounded curriculum. We, as parents, join together to provide additional funding and volunteer support which we believe enriches the programs and education at Blossom Hill for our children.

Membership is open to all BH parents. Membership envelopes are available in the school office throughout the year. You may complete the brief form on the front and leave it with your $20 annual dues in the office. With your annual dues, you receive voting rights and a copy of the Blossom Hill Buzz Book. Monthly meetings are held at the school and are open to everyone. Please refer to the HSC calendar (included in Buzz Book and also on our school website) for dates, times, and locations. The HSC also sponsors the SCRIP and eSCRIP programs which are supported by merchants in Santa Clara County who give a percentage of their profits to our school.

School Site Council (SSC)
The SSC is an elected decision-making group comprised of parents, community members, site administrator, teachers and other staff. The SSC has on ongoing responsibility to develop, implement, monitor and evaluate the school site plan and oversees all the categorical funds such as SIP, GATE, and State Grants. All parents are welcome to attend School Site Council meetings held monthly.
