PTO Council

What the Council Does

The PTO Council serves as a liaison between the PTOs at each of the four district school. The Council coordinate the publication of the district-wide calendar and the student directory App. It also supports a variety of programs, such as the Kenya Sister School, HOH Scholarships, the HOH 5K Run-Walk-Obstacle Course and the Gift Card Plus Program.


  • To promote a close relationship between the home and the school, so parents, guardians, teachers, school staff, and school administrators may cooperate in the education and enrichment of the students
  • To promote an environment in which every student has the opportunity to grow intellectually, socially, and emotionally
  • To raise funds for the benefit of the District 28 Schools and students.


The Council meets at 9 a.m. the first Tuesday of the month in the HOH Community Room at the district office, 1475 Maple Ave. The meetings are open to everyone.

HOH5K 2020

Plans are underway for the 2020 HOH5K Scholarship and Fun Run, which will be held May 2, 2020 at Northbrook Junior High. Nearly 350 runners participated in the 2019 HOH5K and Fun Run, put on by the PTO Council to raise funds for the Homer O. Harvey Scholarship Fun. 

The Homer Harvey Scholarship fund was established by District 28 and Dr. Homer O. Harvey's family in 1989. The scholarship is named in honor of Dr. Harvey, a longtime superintendent who retired in 1989 after 21 years.

The HOH 5K is the main fundraiser to support the Scholarship Fund and is organized by the Northbrook School District 28 PTO Council, with the enthusiastic support of our school PTOs, our staff, and many community volunteers.

Each year, between 12-16 District 28 seniors are awarded $500-$1,000 scholarships based on citizenship and scholarship. Since 1989, 343 NBJH graduates have received $307,500 in scholarship funds as they graduated high school.
