Happy New Year - 2021!


We wish you all a healthy and happy New Year, and hope that we can soon see this pandemic come under control so that everyone feels safe to live and learn together. For the time being all PTO events will continue to be held remotely and we will announce all meetings and webinars via this weekly newsletter, eblasts, the PTO Website and the PTO HS Facebook page. 


We are so grateful to all our PTO volunteers who are finding new ways to deliver their programs and fulfill their roles, and by gracefully accepting when we have had to cancel or postpone the things that cannot take place in the current circumstances. 


We have experienced beautiful examples of our community coming together and supporting one another this past year, and the upcoming MLK celebrations will be a perfect opportunity for us to start 2021 with positive intention. 


Thank you all for your patience and care,

Kate and Ramona

HS PTO Co-Presidents 2020-21
