Hello from PTA Co-Presidents

We made it!  The whirlwind of September and the start of school is now behind us – paperwork is completed, we’ve met with teachers, and our students are settling into the routines of their new classes. The same goes for HTPTA, our tried and true PTA-sponsored programs are in motion:
  • The art docent team is working with all grades to make those amazing clay creations and further develop our student’s love of art. 
  • Kindergarten students recently explored the world of spiders through our hands-on science enrichment program.
  • Science Night is scheduled for December 2. 
We are also exploring new initiatives. Look for announcements about the launch of Highland Terrace Watch Dogs, playground enhancements and new programming to support STEM learning in the classrooms. 

If you have ideas on how the PTA can better serve our school community, we’d love to hear from you!

Jill Sismaet and Leslie Boyd

It takes many hands to run the PTA! We are grateful for all of our volunteers, and we can always use more help! Please go to our web site to find out how you can help your school!
