We believe that communication is the key to success and we strive to keep you informed and engaged in all the activities we plan and execute that help make Haviland great!
Did you know that every cent that the Haviland PTA raises goes right back to our school?
The PTA's purpose is to support our teachers and to help enrich our children's experience at Haviland. The school district has spent more than a decade cutting school budgets - in some cases drastically - due to various economic factors including diminishing state funding.
Our school faces significant economic and budget challenges and this directly impacts our children, parents, teachers, school staff, administrators and the community. Teachers often have to pay out of pocket for basic classroom materials and schools are often not able to spend money on "the extras" These facts make the PTA more important than ever!
Everything that the PTA plans and executes has to meet our goals. These goals ensure that we are staying true the PTA ethos and creating a fun and enriching environment for everyone at Haviland!
Improve and implement efficient fundraising strategies and ensure we continue to fund PTA sponsored programs/events while reducing the economic impact on Haviland families.
Communicate with staff, teachers, parents, other Haviland organizations and the community.
Support Haviland students by funding high quality student programs.
Maintain volunteer opportunities for parents and children.
Promote an open-door policy within our parent community.
