September Newsletter

On behalf of the PTA board, we would like to welcome you back for a successful 2010-2011 school year.  The Hampton PTA has three new board members this year; Sarah Kautz (President), Konni Stapf (Vice President), and Dina Kastner (Treasurer).  Trudy Fox (Secretary) returns for the final year of her term.  Please feel free to contact us at any time during the year with questions or ideas!  This year, we are going ‘green’ and will be sending as many PTA communications via email as possible.  Please note – for the remainder of the year, all PTA newsletters will be sent out via email.  If you would like to be on the list, please contact Lee in the office.


PTA is very important to Hampton School.  PTA holds various fundraisers throughout the year to support our students and teachers by purchasing items such as curriculum needs (reading, math programs), playground equipment, ELMO and smart boards, gym AV equipment, band instruments, teacher wish list needs, hosting school social events to encourage family togetherness, and enriching the lives of our students by sponsoring the annual Cultural Arts Day.  Please join PTA and become involved in your child’s future.  We need your support.
