About PTA

Welcome!

Welcome back to school, Harrington families!

Harrington PTA is thrilled to kick-off the new school year and work with our entire community to make 2017-18 a great year.

The PTA is a vital link between the school and the community. We bolster the educational curriculum by hosting programs like Big Backyard, Math Mornings, Science Fair, and the ACT initiative that brings artists to school. We also provide families and students with the opportunity to connect by assembling the school directory, coordinating room parents, providing international language liaisons, and organizing social events including International Food Night, Harrington Hurrah, Spring Fair, and Movie Night.

We would like every Harrington family to join the PTA to support our efforts and keep Harrington great!

The first step is to opt-in to the school directory!
An email with a custom link to My School Anywhere was sent to every family. Through My School Anywhere, you can find contact information for other Harrington families and view your children’s classmates.

Please follow the link you received and verify your information in My School Anywhere. Then, UNCHECK (very counterintuitive) the boxes so your family’s contact details are included both in the on line and printed directories. In previous years, your information was automatically included in the directory unless you stated otherwise. Now, YOU MUST OPT IN! Opting in ensures that room parents can notify you about classroom events, the PTA can inform you about school events, and you can connect with other parents for play dates and birthday parties.

Second, join the PTA. Your membership donation goes a long way toward funding the educational and social programs we plan throughout the year. It’s never been easier. We have now done the sign up and payment on-line through myschoolanywhere.com and paypal.com.

Third, volunteer! There are so many opportunities to help. Be a room parent, and get to know your child’s classmates and teachers. Volunteer during library time or Big Backyard. Help out at any one of the big PTA events, notably the Spring Fair. If you want to lead an event or be a chairperson, please let us know. We’d love to have you!

Finally, attend Harrington PTA events. Harrington is such a special place with wonderful students and families. PTA sponsored events are a great way to bring us together.

We hope to see you soon!

Sincerely,

Christine Minihane and Cheri Sukhia
PTA Co-Presidents
