Welcome Back!

Welcome to High Tech Middle School from the Parent Association (PA)!

On behalf of the HTM Parent Association board, I am delighted to extend a warm welcome to our new and returning families. We share your anticipation and excitement of a new school year and look forward to the inspired educational experiences awaiting our children.
Our mission is to support our school, staff and students by providing:
  •  Communications: A bi‐weekly email newsletter with “what’s new” at school, and calendar reminders.
  • Community Building: Hospitality and hosting support at school‐wide events like Back to School Night, Exhibition Night, and the Director’s monthly coffee meet‐up.
  •  Classroom Support: Team parents support the teachers directly and help with communication.
  • Fundraising: Our annual “Fund Run” jog‐a‐thon, Taco Sales, Logo Wear, eScrip and Gift Card fundraisers help the school and classroom budgets.

You are invited to our monthly PA meetings held at 8:40 a.m. the first Thursday of the month at HTM. Look for meeting location, agendas, and meeting notes posted on the PA website.

Our first big event of the year is Back to School Night on Thursday, September 13th, 6 to 7pm. This is a great opportunity to meet other families, HTM staff and students. Look for details on our Taco Stand dinner event that starts at 5:00. This is one of our most popular (and delicious) fundraisers!

There are many opportunities to help out at HTM. We welcome your support in any form, and for any amount of time. No donation of time or energy is too little or too big! Our teachers sincerely appreciate parent support, and the PA is glad to coordinate and assist our parent volunteers. If you want to find
out more about the PA, or if you can volunteer to help, please contact any of our board members.

The PA Board looks forward to meeting our many new families and seeing good friends in the coming months. I wish all of you an extraordinary new year!
With warm regards,
Lisa Ferguson
HTM PA President
