BACK TO SCHOOL
Hello, I am Michelle Jeffries the newly elected PTA President for the 2020-2021 school year. On behalf of the PTA board, we want to welcome new and returning families to Hawthorn Hill Elementary School. This year may look different but our goal is still the same, we want to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for ALL children. The PTA is working hard to plan and organize enjoyable and enriching events that are social distancing approved.
I first joined the PTA when my oldest daughter Peyton started Kindergarten. I wanted to join because I wanted to know what was happening in the school and to be able to help her thrive in her education. I didn’t have much time to volunteer due to having my youngest daughter at home and I learned that volunteering was not a requirement. When I was able to help, I did because nothing is possible without volunteers, and my daughter loved seeing me at her school and being active in the school. So, if you are looking to have a voice and want to know what is going on at the school, I urge you to join the PTA. Your support will enhance your child’s(ren’s) experiences at our
We invite you to join and PTA for your child because increasing our membership, even by one, makes a huge difference.
In the past we have been able to:
*Provide vouchers for all teachers to provide classroom supplies and material to their students.
*The PTA purchased early literacy curriculum, instruments for the music department.
*Family engagement events such as pastries with Parents
*Supplements the cost of field trips for every student and pays for all-school activities like Kaleidoscope.
Even though this year will have some challenges we are still committed to making it a memorable and fun year.
