Just a quick update regarding the coveted directories……As you may or may not know in the beginning of the school year we had to find a replacement for our membership/directory chair. We pulled together and are doing our best to get the directories out. We are looking at the first week in December for distribution. We ask you to please be patient.
While we are on the subject , if anyone who like to be a part of membership for the upcoming school year we would LOVE to have you!!! Questions??? email

Thank You and on behalf of HMS PTO Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

It was great to see you at the Back to School nights this week!  We thank you for stopping by the PTO tables and picking up or purchasing spirit wear and paying dues!

The next step is checking your information in Volunteer Builder to make sure your information is IN and IN correctly including your student(s) information.

PLEASE NOTE:  We do NOT get your information from the school regarding your address and your student names.  We rely on YOU to input the information.

We are asking you check your information and any issues or problems let us know.  We cannot be held responsible for missing information so PLEASE check.  The link is below for your convenience.

If you have not paid $20.00 dues and still would like to contribute you can pay cash, credit/debit card(s), PayPal or check. The PayPal link is below for your convenience.

We are hoping to have the directories ready by the end of October!

As always, if you have any questions please reach out!

Have a great weekend!!!!

Welcome back to the 2016-2017 School Year!

There are three Back-to-School nights scheduled as follows:

September 26th 6 PM                        6th Grade Back-to-School Night

September 27th 6:30 PM                   7th Grade Back-to-School Night

September 28th 6:30 PM                    8th Grade Back-to-School Night

The PTO will be set-up to welcome you with spirit wear (cash and carry), and you can register in Volunteer Builder (registering does not mean you have to volunteer! We pull information for the directory from Volunteer Builder), and you can pay dues (for which you will receive the directory). Our dues fund activities and events such as the school dances, activity nights, reading olympics, science olympiad, and much more! Only $20 per family. Thank you for your support and we look forward to meeting you in September!
