The start of a new school year is always an exciting time in our household, and this year it’s even more exciting for us as I step into the role of HMS PTA president.
We have been a proud Fox Family since 2018 when my eldest, now a SMHS sophomore, started 6th grade. This year, my youngest starts his HMS journey while my second is preparing for his to come to an end.
Recently, we have often heard the term “return to normal.” While we may not know exactly what “normal” looks like, I look forward to working with Principal Topalian, assistant principal Hazlett, and our PTA volunteers to bring back treasured traditions such as pancakes at Hauntington Breakfast, Outdoor Education, in-person PTA meetings, and so much more.
Our exceptional school, teachers and programs thrive because of the support from parents and community members through their time and generous donations. From teacher wishlists to 6th grade dances and everything in between, there is an opportunity to participate or donate in any way you can. I invite you to get involved, join HMS PTA, and together we can build an incredible “normal” at HMS this year.
