Dear Students, Parents, Guardians, and Staff of The Hooksett Schools,

The Hooksett PTA welcomes all of you to the 2017-2018 school year.  Our PTA is your local chapter to our nation’s largest child advocacy organization (National PTA).  The Hooksett PTA strives to be a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and our community, and a strong advocate for the education and wellbeing of every child.  We do this is many ways through the Hooksett’s three schools.  We supply the community with low cost family engagement opportunities such as Spooktular, Get Fit Night, and Bingo Night.  We help our students by sponsoring, school dances, afterschool clubs, activities, and, fun-fill educational assemblies.  We help staff with teacher grants, enrichment funds, and volunteers.  We bring forth parent information nights to help education our parents and community on current pressing topics.  

We do all of this through your yearly membership and some fundraising. Where does your membership fee and fundraising money go you ask?  Just some of our yearly budget items are: $5,500 in teacher grants each year.  We also provide yearly school gifts for each school, help with cost of field trips.  All the cost associate with field day t-shirts, 5th grade t-shirts, Nicky folders, end of the year BBQ, Teacher appreciation week, and a number of awards.

We hope you will continue to supports us by joining us at:  Hopefully, not just with your membership fee but occasioning helping us out by leading a hand.  A few times a year we need help selling dance tickets, volunteering a couple of hours working a community event, baking a sweet treat, or coming to a meeting. 

We invite you to check us out at come join in on the fun of another exciting school year here in Hooksett!  We love hearing from our membership please bring forward input and suggestions as we gear up to make sure every child here in Hooksett has a great school year!
