The Hampstead Hill Academy’s Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) works with HHA’s teachers and staff to provide the best learning experience for all students at the school. To supplement HHA’s rich learning environment, the PTO organizes events that build community and also raise funds for school activities. The money raised by the PTO has been used to purchase classroom and club materials and to defray the cost of field trips.
The PTO is governed by set of bylaws and is lead by Parent Board Members who are elected bi-annually. HHA strives to include all voices from the diverse school community.
The PTO Board for the 2021-22 school year are:
President: Vic Victoriano
Vice President: Bonnie Mattox
Treasurer: Jonathan Rothstein
Secretary: Trisha Shellenbach
Teacher Representatives: Ms. Lefever, Ms. Douglas and Ms. Sparwasser
Members-at-Large: Cait Drake, Charles Eddington, Yan Zhao-Hylkema, Danielle Kelly, Rosa Martinez, Maria (Ree) Miskimon, Jill Vasbinder Morrison
The PTO depends on many parent and community volunteers who donate time from their busy days to make PTO events successful. There are several areas for volunteers to make a difference and opportunities can be tailored to individual schedules. If you have a few minutes or hours to share, please consider volunteering with the HHA PTO. It is a great opportunity to support the school and also have fun with a great group of parents. The PTO can be reached by sending an e-mail to HHAPTO@gmail.com. Be sure to like the PTO Facebook page (HHA PTO – Hampstead Hill Academy Parent Teacher Organization).
During the course of the school year, the PTO host monthly meetings, fundraisers and appreciation breakfasts for the HHA staff members. Please refer to the HHA news magazine and the calendar on this website for upcoming dates of all PTO activities.
