Haun’s PTA supports critical academic needs, is an active voice on decisions that impact your child’s health, safety and quality of education, and builds a stronger, more inclusive school community. We invite you to JOIN and PTA For Your Child because increasing our membership, even by one, makes it possible to:                    

  • Community Building events (Family picnic, International Night, etc)  
  • Extra educational materials (Scholastic flyers, library books, art supplies, assemblies)
  • 3 class parties throughout the year
  • Teacher Grants and so much more .....
