PTA MEMBERSHIP DUES

Dear fellow HANC families,

We want to again thank you for your unwavering support of the PTA, particularly during this unprecedented past year. Everything the PTA accomplishes at HANC could not happen without your help. Whether it be volunteering your time, funding our programs, or providing feedback and advice, we would not be the robust organization that we are, or be able to provide the multitude of enrichment opportunities for our students, without you.

Thanks to your participation, we were able to close out this past school year on a tremendous high note, including organizing the virtual book fair and sponsoring treats for the kindergarten graduations as well as for the first and second grade Chumash and Siddur plays. We also brought in Rita's ices for all students and gifted each 8th grade graduate with a special book and cake. 

To kick off this new year, we are again purchasing most of the school supplies for the ECC and 609 students. We recognize that this last year-and-a-half has brought hardships and stress to the forefront for many of our families and we are proud to be able to alleviate at least a small measure of back-to-school pressure for parents. The respective HANC campuses will notify parents of the remaining items that will need to be purchased, such as zip-top bags, paper towels, and tissues.

In order to fund this coming year’s programs and initiatives, we ask that you partner with us in making your annual dues contribution. You must pay dues before signing up for lice check. Lice check sign-up will be sent out in the coming days, and is only for students in Nursery-6th Grade. This year, as in previous years, we have bifurcated PTA dues as follows: (a) Nursery–6th Grade, and (b) Middle School.

PTA membership for Nursery–6th Grade includes:

  • Lice check (4 times a year);

  • Access to school lunch program (dependent upon health and safety guidelines);

  • Access to after-school clubs (dependent upon health and safety guidelines);

  • Staff Chanukah and Purim gifts;

  • Various grade-specific celebrations throughout the year (e.g., collations for Yom Shalom, Siddur Play, Wax Museum, 5th Grade BBQ, etc.);

  • Teacher appreciation programs;

  • School calendar; and much more!

 

The fee for Nursery–6th Grade PTA dues is $125 for the first child, plus an additional $50 for each added child, with a payment cap at 3 three children for a maximum dues amount of $225.

PTA membership for Middle School covers:

  • Staff Chanukah and Purim gifts;

  • Various grade-specific celebrations throughout the year (i.e., 7th grade welcome, Rosh Chodesh treats, 8th grade graduation, etc.);

  • Teacher appreciation programs;

  • School calendar; and much more!

 

The fee for Middle School PTA dues is $50 per child, with a payment cap at three children for a maximum dues amount of $150.

Payment in full can be made by credit card through the PTA website. The links are provided below. We are also offering the option to pay in 3 installments by providing 3 post-dated checks (dated September 1st, December 1st, and April 1st) at lice check.

We are mindful of the financial hardships that our families may be facing, and the PTA is here to assist. Please message us privately at hancpta@hanc.org so that we can work with your family.

Once again, thank you for your generous support and engagement. We look forward to partnering with you on making this upcoming school year a resounding success!

Sincerely,

Sharon Grysman and Tzippy Calm
