Learning Resoures

The following is a message from Ms. Broatch:

Dear Parents;
As always, we value the partnership we have with families in supporting a love of learning in your children. On our school website ( under Links to Great Sites we have posted some ideas for learning that you and your child can explore all year. With whatever you choose, the most important thing is for you and your child to enjoy this shared experience! It is our sincere hope that soon we will be welcoming you and your children back into the Signal Hill School community.

School Supply Fundraiser


Dear Parents,
The Parent Advisory Council would like to extend an invitation for you to purchase your school supplies in advance.

We have filed the school supply lists for each grade with a company called “Teacher’s File.” They pre-package the supplies (including the specific brand name items requested by teachers) into individual student bags and deliver them to the school. The bags are then distributed to the correct classroom, so that when your child arrives for school in September, their supply bag will be waiting for them!

Our school receives 10% of our overall order back as a fundraiser. So in addition to the ease in which you can order, and the great price on the quality items you will be receiving, you are also contributing to school fundraising by participating in this worth while program!


  • Go online to
  • Click on the School Supplies link
  • Enter “Signal Hill Elementary” in the School Name field – Click Go.
  • Select the appropriate grade
  • Click “Online Form
  • Place your order

This year, we are accepting ONLINE ORDERS ONLY.
Order Deadline: July 15th, 2014

Orders received after this date will be subject to a $5 processing fee and is only available while supplies last.
