2020-2021 HMS PTA BOARD
VP2- Stephen Burrows
Secretary- Taryn Raulston
Treasurer- Denise Rangel Parliamentarian- Stella Mulhollan
Given the situation with COVID the PTA will run more behind the scenes/virtual as we are not allowed inside the schools at this time. Do not let this discourage you from joining the board. We are working diligently to provide for our students, families and staff during virtual learning and will carry that over upon their return to in-person learning. In addition to the above open positions, there are committee positions that need filled as well, *Staff Appreciation Chair, *Communication Chair and *Concession Manager. If you, someone you know or you want to co-chair a position, please reach out to our board. We can always use extra help behind the scenes too so don’t be shy!
We are happy to answer your questions regarding the PTA and the available positions.
*Visit our contact us link to find a list of current board members.

Due to Covid memberships are a challenge. We have taken Covid into account and have adjusted our membership goal. This year our goal is 300 and we are currently have 45 members. Every membership counts and you benefit from various discounts for becoming a member.
Check out all what a PTA Membership has to offer- PTA Perks
Students, parents, grandparents, community members, just about anyone can become a HMS PTA member. Each membership (student and adult) is $10 and will help us provide for our students and staff. Joining the PTA is a simple way to get connected to your students’ school. A membership does not require you to volunteer or attend monthly long drawn out meetings, it simply means HMS PTA receives a portion of your membership payment and you have inside access to all things PTA.

HMS PTA needs YOU!
Unfortunately we are not able to open concessions for volleyball season but are hopeful we will be up and running for basketball. This year it will be easier because we are only serving grab and go type items and ask for 1 volunteer per shift. We encourage and welcome students to help too!
** watch for a sign- up to be posted and emailed**
If the concession stand does not interest you but you want to help in another way, even it’s a hour here or there, please do. We can use all the help we can get!
Involvement ranges from food/drink donations for teachers, helping at PTA sponsored events, and decoration bulletin boards throughout the year. There are so many more ways to volunteer get involved. A set of hands & a BIG smile goes a long way at the HIVE.
Please, email your contact information and availability to Melody Alvarado @ Volunteer Coordinator
**Remember volunteers must complete a new background check form EVERY YEAR. To be ready on the day we are allowed back in the school you can complete the annual background check now.

Once volunteers are allowed in the building you will present your driver’s license to the front office. When you volunteer during school hours please sign in as a “VOLUNTEER”. Hopewell gets credit for volunteer hours through the raptor system.
