What is PATH?
Glad you asked. PATH stands for Parents And Teachers of HTLA-MS, and our aim is to boost campus life at HTLA by raising funds to invest in the school. For example, we just purchased new microscopes for our science classrooms. Remember how much fun it was to look at weird, tiny stuff in science class? Now they can.
Nice! But I'm Not Sure How Much Time I Have to Volunteer...
Totally okay. Obviously, we'd love it if you were interested in joining the board. But as you probably remember from elementary school, there are plenty of ways to help that don't require a huge time commitment -- and which you can even do from home, around your regular work hours.
One of the biggest ways is speaking up: give us your ideas, your advice, your input. Got a connection for field trip transportation? Awesome. Do you have an "in" with a local restaurant? Fantastic. Have you seen or done a fundraiser before that you'd like to see us try, even if you can't run it yourself? Please tell us.
Okay, How Can I Reach You?
An easy way is by e-mail: [email protected].
But, we have meetings every other month on Zoom -- usually around the third Thursday of October, December, February, April, and June. Anyone is welcome, and the principal and some faculty also often come, so it's an excellent time to pitch and idea, and ask THEM questions, too. We'll send the Zoom link out ahead of time.
How Can I Stay Up-to-Date With PATH?
We send a weekly e-mail (usually; sometimes, life happens) that acts as a backup to our principal's regular newsletter. You can subscribe and then we'll appear every weekend in your Inbox. It's like a little GIF(t) to yourself.
