PARENT TEACHER FELLOWSHIP (PTF)

The purpose of the PTF is to partner with the HLS administration to enhance and support the educational experience at Highlands Latin School while developing a closer connection between school and home by encouraging parent involvement, and assisting HLS with volunteer and financial support.

THE PTF’S FOUR MAIN GOALS

  1. Encourage parents to assist with various school activities/functions/services.

  2. Provide financial assistance where needs are identified.

  3. Foster a community atmosphere.

  4. Support the mission and vision of HLS.

WHY PARTICIPATE?

By getting involved, you can make great things happen! We welcome parental input and ideas to help our students and teachers make HLS an amazing educational environment. In fact, all of the events we are hosting this year have come from the ideas of parents just like you – Game Night, the Christmas Carnival & Bazaar, Hot Chocolate at Lunch, Birthday Lunches, First Friday Coffees, Talent Show, Chili Hoedown, etc. Together we foster a sense of community within the school by creating and providing activities that are fun, educational and enriching for all.

HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?

There are numerous ways to be involved. From being a room parent to committee chair, or making a financial donation, to volunteering for one of the events, all levels of participation are greatly appreciated and make a huge impact. At the beginning of the year, the PTF will provide a volunteer form for each parent to complete. For more information email questions to higlandslatinschoolptf@gmail.com
