PTA MEMBERSHIP DUES

Dear fellow HANC families,

 

As we embark on another new year, we must begin with again thanking you all for your engagement, time, and assistance in facilitating the PTA's programs and endeavors.  Everything the PTA accomplishes at HANC is made possible through your partnership.  Devotion on the part of our fellow parents and teachers to volunteering their time, funding the PTA's programs, and providing feedback and creative suggestions has paved the way for the PTA to execute on many enrichment opportunities for HANC's students and staff alike.

 

Looking back on this past year, we worked to rediscover and reinvent the PTA's role at HANC as we continued to emerge from the effects of COVID-19, including a return to clubs, a more robust lunch program, in-person celebrations and book fair, and sponsored trips, to name a few.  The PTA also was proud to gift our staff members with a beautiful and cozy HANC sweatshirt at Chanukah time, as well as each student with a full-sized HANC towel before the summer to help showcase our school spirit and pride.

 

In order to fund this coming year’s programs and new initiatives, we ask that you partner with us in making your annual dues contribution.

 

Dues must be paid before signing up for lice check
