From the PTA Presidents

Welcome to the 2018-19 School Year! The Harrington PTA is thrilled to see so many new families interested in the numerous activities we have planned this year. The Harrington PTA is not just a “bake sale” group. We work hard to assist the families and staff of Harrington through financial gifts and community support activities. Since we are a 501 (c) 3, non-profit, we need to fundraise to bring our vision to life.

The majority of the PTA funds will be used for curriculum enrichment programs through Arts Created Together (ACT). The ACT Chairs organize programs like the Museum of Science, Historical Perspectives, and chick hatching to bring to our classrooms. We also support the Big Backyard program which brings all grades outdoors each season to explore nature. Additional PTA funds will be distributed for staff appreciation and supplies, school beautification, and staff development.

Although membership is not required of any family, it is helpful to have as many families join the PTA as possible so we can continue to support our wonderful staff and contribute to the Harrington community.
