PTA

What is the PTA and who can be a member?

Our PTA is part of the National Parent/Teacher Association that strives to enhance children's educational experiences. Being part of a national organization, we must pay annual dues. To offset these dues, every year we have a membership drive. Becoming a member does not mean you automatically sign up to volunteer, it just means you support our group and believe in what we're doing. You will see our membership table at most school events. All parents, family members and caregivers, along with school faculty can be members, for a minimum of $5 each!

PTA Programs & Fundraising

Our primary objective as a PTA is to provide our school with funds, programs, resources and services that will enrich and maximize the education of every child. To meet this important objective and afford services that are no longer covered by our school budgets, we must fundraise.

Our PTA provides Hawthorne with:

  • Artists-in-residence
  • Soccer program
  • Assemblies
  • Funding for SMART Boards and classroom technology
  • Classroom magazine subscriptions
  • Hawk-A-Thon
  • Spring Fiesta
  • Fall Festival
  • Movie Night
  • Skating Parties
  • New library books
  • Laminator
  • Yoga
  • Outdoor Classroom
  • Curriculum Funds
  • Boo-Hoo Woo-Hoo Breakfast
  • Staff Appreciation Week
  • Square 1 Art Project
  • Walking Track
  • iPads for classroom
  • iPad lab
  • and more…

Become a volunteer…Why YOU should get involved!

We need your help, and so do your children. Over 500 independent studies on parent involvement show that when parents get involved in their children's education, grades go up, test scores improve, children are more likely to attend better schools after high school, have fewer discipline problems and are less likely to use drugs and alcohol. Get involved TODAY!

Volunteering doesn't have to mean a huge time commitment. We understand it is increasingly more difficult to find time to give, but please, whatever your schedule allows, we can find a spot for you. We have tasks that can be performed during the day, in the evenings, at school or at home.

Our PTA is certainly about more than bake sales! We're about men and women working together toward a common goal. That goal, simply stated, is creating a better school and a better educational experience for our children. We strive to create an atmosphere where teachers, administrators, and support staff can do their best work – and so can our children. There is so much more that can be done, and we need your help.

On behalf of the Hawthorne PTA, we would once again like to extend a warm welcome and best wishes for a successful school year!
