Letter from the President

Hello parents, 

Thank you for your patience with PTA as we continue to work on organizing and restructuring PTA. The past two years created many challenges for PTA (along with the rest of the world) and we continue to work on being flexible and adaptable. Our apologies for not following through with some of our committees and our lack of transparency. We would like to encourage every family/parent to respond to the survey that was sent out in Thursday folders (or on Harris Website PTA link). We will continue to work on our transparency and inclusivity. Please refer to the committee list and reach out to any of the PTA officers if you are interested in signing up. PTA is also currently in need of a secretary. Please notify a PTA officer if you are interested or have any questions.
