Welcome Friends and Family of HHES!

Mission of the PTA

  • To support and speak on behalf of children and youth in schools, in the community and before governmental bodies and other organizations that make decisions affecting children;
  • To assist parents in developing the skills they need to raise and protect their children;
  • To encourage parent and public involvement in the public schools of this nation.

Open Forum Tue. Sept. 15, 2020 @ 7 p.m.

There will be an Open Forum on Tuesday, September 15, 2020 at 7pm Google Meet (https://meet.google.com/fxy-ooxr-doq). The purpose of this forum is NOT to engage in official PTA business but keep the conversation going between parents and teachers in these difficult and confusing times. We hope to discuss:

  • How we have all made our way through this first week of school
  • If we need to have an in-person PTA meeting this quarter, what should it look like?
  • What we can do as a PTA to keep student, parent and teacher morale high
  • How to make sure disadvantaged students at Harford Hills do not fall behind for lack of support

Please feel free to pass this message on to other parents and staff members and ask them to please fill out the PTA interest form at https://forms.gle/6AbQFR5z1Akm3thJ8 for updates when we are ready to hold an official PTA meeting for elections and budget approval.

Maryland PTA is holding an online Leadership meeting at the exact same time on Tuesday that I need to attend. I hope they will give good advice on how to officially begin our 2020-2021 PTA year.

PTA Interest Form

We’re still waiting for guidance on how to elect a new PTA board and safely and legally hold remote meetings. In the meantime we are allowed to hold “open forums” where we can come together online to talk and share our ideas and concerns about the upcoming school year.

To continue your membership for 2020 please fill out this form with your info and your preferred meeting times: https://forms.gle/6AbQFR5z1Akm3thJ8
