Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year!

Posted Aug 22, 2017 | Category: News

Greetings Parents!

On behalf of our Parent Teacher Organization, I would like to welcome all of you to Hauser Jr. High School. We hope everyone enjoyed the summer and is ready for the start of the 2017-2018 school year.

Our goal is a special partnership that bridges a child’s two very important worlds: home and school. If your child attends Hauser, you are automatically a member of the PTO. We have no dues. We do have a few fundraisers throughout the year. Some of the programs sponsored by the PTO include the Eighth Grade Graduation Party, Honor Roll celebrations, Hauser Canned Food Drive, Staff Appreciation Week, Scholastic Book Fair, Family Dinner, and much more!

We encourage you to get involved and be informed and help make the environment at Hauser as rich as possible for our children. If you have an idea you want to organize, please share it! If you just want to lend a hand, there will be many opportunities – if everyone volunteers for one shift at a PTO event, that would be a huge help and greatly appreciated – plus students love to see their parents involved at school!

For now, we encourage you to:

  • Subscribe to our Monday Feedblitz at www.hauserpto.org. The Feedblitz will contain information about our fundraisers, events, and volunteer opportunities, as well as important reminders about school and district programs
  • Follow us on Facebook!
  •  Attend our PTO meetings. Our first meeting is from 5-6pm on Thursday, August 31st in the Auditorium – just prior to the Sarah’s Inn Parent Presentation and Hauser’s Fall Parent Night.
  • Mark your calendar for the PTO-sponsored Town Hall meetings. These will be opportunities for you to ask questions and share your concerns with Hauser administration and PTO members. The first Town Hall meeting will be on Friday, October 20th at 9am in the Hauser auditorium.
  • Participate in our fall fundraisers: Spiritwear sale, Mixed Bag Designs sale, or 100% Fund. We also collect Box Tops year-round.
  • Please feel free to contact me @ jlaube@laubecompanies.com or any PTO board member with your concerns, questions, and/or ideas!
    • Lisa Gaynor, 1st VP of Communications
    • Lisa Hennelly, 2nd VP of Members and Volunteers
    • Lisa Swicionis, 3rd VP Fundraising
    • Jill Glawe, Secretary
    • Sue Gersch, Parliamentarian

Looking forward to a great year!

Julie Laube
President, Hauser PTO
