It's a Fact: Kids Do Better When Parents are Engaged in Their Learning

The #1 reason to join Kathryn Hughes PTA is...Your Child.  When children see their parents involved in their schools, it motivates and excites them.  This is a great way to inspire your child, support their passions, and help them find opportunities.

When you become a member you are helping the Hughes PTA:

  • Give free events to the students and the community
  • Give each teacher at our school a spending allowance for their classroom to support your child's education

...and so much more!!    

In addition, you will be part of a powerful association that can make a difference in advocating for our children and educators at the local, state, and national levels.

Lastly, as you get more and more involved, it is a wonderful opportunity for you to connect with other parents, hear from each other for ideas, and the teaching community at Hughes.
