PTA IN ACTION

CONGRATS HAUN!!

Texas PTA recognized the Haun PTA with the Voice for Every Child Silver Award. This past year, our PTA welcomed members equal to 50% of our campus student enrollment.  Truly a job well done!

Everyone can back the future!      #YouCanPTA

The Parent Teacher Association is the oldest and largest volunteer child advocacy association in the United States. It promotes the education, health and well-being of every child.  


Recently, the Texas PTA has advocated for our students to waive the STAAR Test for this year. Please read their statement: 

We reiterate the letter (https://bit.ly/2OpA4xe) sent from Texas PTA President Suzi Kennon to Governor Abbott on July 13, 2020: “We urge you to seek a waiver from administering the federally required assessments for the 2020-2021 school year from the U. S. Department of Education. It is the right thing to do.” There is no place for high-stakes state assessment during a pandemic.

Texas PTA Letter to the Governor   Governor Abbott's Response

 

The Haun PTA has been working behind the scenes to get school supplies, spirit wear and yearbooks to you.  Even in the midst of the pandemic, we are planning and meeting with administrators and each other. 

We are still in need of a few more volunteers. These positions are still vacant: 

  • Community Outreach
    Plan 2-3 service projects throughout the year

  • Reflections Chair
    Oversee this program at our school, collecting  student's art compositions from various artistic disciplines
