Greetings Parents!

Posted Aug 21, 2016 | Category: News, PTO Board

On behalf of our Parent Teacher Organization, I would like to welcome all new and returning families to Hauser Jr. High School. We hope everyone enjoyed the summer and is ready for the start of the 2016-2017 school year!

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

We encourage you to get involved and be informed. 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 – plus students love to see their parents involved at school.

For now, we encourage you to:

  • Subscribe to our Monday Feedblitz . You can sign up in the Newsletter Sign-Up section on the website. 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 6-7pm on Thursday, September 1st in the Hauser auditorium – just prior to 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 Wednesday, October 12th at 9am in the Hauser auditorium.
  • Participate in our fall fundraisers – the Spirit Wear sale runs through September 15th, and the Mixed Bag Designs sale will start at the end of September. You can also opt out of fundraisers and give to the 100% Fund instead.
  • Contact any PTO board member with your concerns, questions and/or ideas!
    • Stephanie O’Brien, 1st VP of Communications
    • Lisa Gaynor, 2nd VP of Members and Volunteers
    • Riia O’Donnell and Sarah Leone, Co-3rd VPs of Fundraising
    • Angela Izzo, Treasurer
    • Paige Fumo Fox, Secretary
    • Lisa Hennelly, Parliamentarian

Looking forward to a great year!

1st friday

April 2016

On the first Friday of each month, PTO features a topic of interest to parents. Since we weren’t in school last Friday, it’s coming today!  This month we’re featuring a quick tip.  Did you know that there’s a Power School app for your phone?  You can now have access to your child’s grades, test and homework scores, school announcements and more…at your fingertips!

First, you need to go the App Store on your phone, search for PowerSchool and install it.  You’ll need to set up an I-Tunes account if you don’t have one, then log into it.  You’ll be prompted to enter our school code: DLHM and your PowerSchool username and password.  Off you go!

Happy Friday!
