PTA

Whether you are returning or a new family, we hope you'll help in making this a year to remember for your student. You'll find middle school does not require as much parent involvement as grade school. Throughout the year help will be needed at our four events, and with food donations. However, one of the best ways for you and your family to support our Huskies is to join the PTA. Your membership contributions go a long way to support our events and there is no need to volunteer if you are busy. 

Everyone is welcome to attend our PTA meetings. Even if you do not have time to volunteer please attend the monthly meetings to hear the Principal's Report about our school; see what we are all about and share your input. Communication is at the center of our board’s mission as well as a teamwork approach. We encourage parents and teachers to share their skills, knowledge, thoughts and ideas with us. Please let us know how we can help you. Do not hesitate to ask us for anything you need. We look forward to working with you.

Why does our school need a PTA?

Our primary objective as a PTA is to provide our students with programs, resources and services that will enrich and maximize the education of each child.

What does herget PTA do for our school?

The PTA actively works to provide Herget students with activities and opportunities that enrich their middle school experience. The PTA does this with parent involvement through committees and working with teachers and staff.

Why join PTA Committee?

Are you interested in volunteering more, but not sure what you can do why not join a committee…

  • If you are a member of a committee or the board, you attend the monthly meeting to share ideas, receive updates and information and vote on budget costs.
  • There are some committees that can be done from home.
  • If you see a friend is chairing a committee ask if they need help, either as a co-chair or a volunteer to support their committee.
  • It's a fun way to become involved in your child’s school and make new friends in the community.
  • Below is a list of committees and activities where help is needed and appreciated.
