The HHS PTSA works with school staff to support or sponsor many entertaining and enjoyable activities like: the Homecoming parade, the After-Prom, and band and choral concerts.

Did you know that the PTSA supports healthy lunches for students, supports after-school care, supports competitive pay for teachers (and staff), supports appropriate/current teacher certifications and credentials, and supports leave for parents to attend their student’s conferences and programs? If these issues are important to you, join the PTSA!
