Parents and Teachers of Hope (PTH) by Melanie Fukumoto, PTH President
We love our school community! The PTH mission is to provide and support activities which enhance the spiritual, social and academic experience of students, families and educators. One of the ways we join together to support the mission of The PTH is by fundraising.
The PTH Board continues to focus its efforts on planning social events and rekindling a sense of community after being socially distanced the last two years. We have planned activities such as last week’s well-attended Donuts with Grownups, Family Movie Night, the Tall and Small Family Ball and of course the upcoming annual auction.
Celebrate Together with Hope! is our auction theme this year. The auction is the main PTH fundraiser and it will be such a fun event you don’t want to miss.
Being the new PTH President I have learned a lot about our school and our dynamic Hope community. I am so thankful for the help and guidance of our previous PTH President ,Heather Leaman, staff, teachers and parents. It takes a village to raise our children and I am so thankful to be a part of this amazing school. Please join us as we Celebrate Together with Hope and help make our auction a success! See you on March 4th!
