A Letter from the PTA President

Hello Haun Husky Families, 

I hope everyone has enjoyed their summer with their families amid all that has happened these last five months. The Haun PTA has been hard at work all summer, and we are excited for the 2020-21 school year. My name is Jana Stern and I am the current PTA President of the Bettye Haun PTA (Parent Teacher Association). I want to welcome back our returning families and give a big warm welcome to our new families. 

We know that our school year may look different, but the Haun PTA continues to work for every child in the areas of Education, Advocacy and Community. PTA is the largest organization that advocates for children! The best way for you as a parent to help this cause is to become a Haun PTA member today at www.haunpta.org. You can make a difference in your child’s education by being in the know at Haun! 

When you become a PTA member, you have access to our online directory found on our website. In addition to the directory, you'll find that our website contains everything you need to help you stay connected and informed at Haun; this includes ordering Spirit Wear, signing up for volunteering and viewing our up-to-date blog. You can also subscribe to the Haun eBark, our bi-monthly newsletter and calendar so that you can be well-informed of our PTA sponsored activities and other important school events. 

We love when our parents get involved. There are opportunities for both working & non-working parents. Please reach out to me if you are interested in learning more about how you can help Haun and the PTA. We will find a place for you. 

Did you know Haun PTA has received many awards over the years for their membership? Last year we received the Voice for Every Child Award Silver, we welcome members equal to 50% of our student’s enrollment, this year let’s get to 100%. Additionally, I am proud to say that every Teacher/Staff member at Haun is a proud Haun PTA member

We have also been certified as a 3 Star Green School for 2020-21 thanks to our wonderful Earth Club sponsored by the Haun PTA and run by Haun staff members and parent volunteers. Last year, our Community Outreach program was able to make blessing bags to give to the homeless and as well donate items to Minnie’s Food Pantry, our donation provided 135 meals. 

We value our families here at Haun, and we will continue to achieve great things thanks to the tremendous support of our families, staff, and community partners. Your volunteer time, financial contributions and advocacy for our students makes an immeasurable difference at Haun. Your Haun PTA provides valuable tools for our students and teachers throughout the year to enhance the educational opportunities and school setting. We are fortunate enough to provide student programs (Red Ribbon week, Multicultural Night, and Field Day), teacher grants, student agendas, and recess equipment and many more. 

The Haun PTA would like to wish you and your student(s) a successful school year. Please do not hesitate to contact me at president@haunpta.org if you have any questions or concerns. 

Best Regards, 

Jana Stern 

2019-21 Haun PTA President
