Kids will learn about the importance of reusing, recycling, and not wasting. What can you do?
*pack reusable items in school lunches
*recycle at home and talk about recycling with your child
*talk to your child about eating lunch and not throwing out large amounts of food, serve your child realistic meal portions.  To volunteer and help during lunch, please contact jenmilw@hotmail.com

PTA Directory Information

Work has begun on this year's school directory! Join the PTA in September to ensure you receive your printed directory!  Addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses are collected directly from Powerschool in September to be used in the Directory.  You provided your information when you registered for school last April/May.  If you've had a change in your contact information, please make sure your school has updated Powerschool with the correct information by September 15th so it is correct in the directory.  If you have questions regarding the directory, contact the Directory Chairpersons at membership@hehopta.com.  If you would like to sponsor an ad in our directory please let us know.  Our dynamic and supportive community would love to have you.
