Welcome from 2011-2012 PA


Dear HTH Parents,

On behalf of the HTH Parent Association we would like to welcome you back to school!

This year, the school and the Parent Association will be delivering orientation materials to the parents of returning students electronically, via two separate emails. You can access the materials either through our website (link provided below) or by clicking the 2011-2012 HTHV Parent Orientation Materials picture located on the right sidebar.

HTH Freshman can pick up their schedules at the New Student Orientation on Wednesday, August 24th from 10:00 - 10:45 a.m. Short tours will be given by returning HTH students to acclimate your child to the school and the campus. Freshman students will also be receiving an Orientation Packet in a large brown envelope. It contains materials from the school and the Parent Association that require your immediate attention. Only freshman will receive a printed copy of the materials.

Forms that need to be submitted can be turned into Rachel Hatch, our Site Administrator, or directly to us at the Welcome Back Coffee on the first day of school.

We would like to call special attention to the eScrip sign up form. This program is a free and effortless way for HTH to earn donations from your regular purchases. Every time you use your registered credit card, debit card, or grocery club card at participating retailers, HTH receives a percentage of your purchase. Currently, Vons is offering to donate 10% of qualifying purchases (designated with a school bus sticker). PLEASE REGISTER WITH HTH TODAY!

There are two monthly events that help keep parents at HTH informed and involved.

Breakfast with Brett 

Hosted by the HTHPA, this monthly meeting with HTH's Director, Brett Peterson, is your opportunity to ask questions, discuss school issues, and become informed. It takes place on the 3rd Friday of each month in the HTH Conference Room at 8:45 a.m. Join us for the first meeting on September 16th.

Parent participation is very important at HTH. The HTHPA meets the 2nd Thursday of each month in the HTH Conference Room at 8:45 a.m. We organize and plan events / fundraisers, etc. and discuss/decide ways to effectively support our school.
