WHAT IS THE HES PTO? It is the Haddam Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization. You are a member by the fact you have a child/children at HES. There are no membership fees; we sustain our budget with fundraisers and direct donations. The PTO volunteers help to provide our school with various family fun nights; social events; a highly diverse Cultural Arts Program to embellish the school’s curriculum, teacher gifts and luncheons, as well as, school gifts (smart boards, walkie talkies, picnic tables, etc.) We act as a liaison and bridge communication between parents, the staff, teachers and superintendent.
HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED? There are many ways you can get involved with the PTO.
• Attend the General Meetings held in the All Purpose Room at HES, your suggestions and input are always welcome and encouraged.
• Participate with the fundraisers or make a monetary donation to the HES PTO.
• There are many volunteer opportunities here at HES. You may want to chair a committee, bake, make photo copies or phone calls, rake leaves in the fall or help set up for a book sale! There are so many different ways to help out our school and the great thing is it can be 15 minutes or a few hours of time. Every little bit helps tremendously!
