PTA Mission Statement

HALE PTA

MISSION STATEMENT  'To bring into closer relationship the home and the school, that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of our children.'

The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) keeps busy and active.  We have many parents who give their time and energy to help with PTA events, classroom activities, field trips and the various duties that make the PTA run smoothly and efficiently.

The PTA includes parents and staff.  Its purpose is to support the school, to establish communication and cooperation in the school community, to be an advocate and representative of the school to the public, to encourage parent and community involvement with the school to provide social activities and cross cultural enrichment activities and to raise money for the benefit of the school.  Money raised has gone to art and technology, arts grant match money and cluster enrichment materials of many kinds.

Executive Board The Hale PTA Executive Board is an elected body of parents that coordinate the PTA functions.  It includes a Chair or Co-Chairs, Secretary, Treasurer and Communications.  The Boards recruits membership in the PTA, oversees various committees and fundraising in an official capacity, makes decisions about dispursement of PTA funds, responds to teacher and staff requests for PTA assistance and communicates PTA actions to the Hale Community.  These responsibilities are divided among the Board members.
