Welcome to Hope Lutheran’s Parents and Teachers of Hope (PTH)!

Hope Lutheran’s PTH is a Christian organization whose mission is to provide and support activities which enhance the spiritual, social and academic experience of our students, families and educators.

The PTH meetings are an excellent way to get updated on school activities, learn about PTH programs, meet other Hope families, receive relevant information on current parent education topics, provide input on school related issues and have fun.  We strive to create an atmosphere where teachers, administrators, and support staff can do their best work – and so can our children. There is so much more that can be done and we need your help!

Meetings are open to all Hope parents and staff and complimentary childcare is provided. We look forward to meeting you!

Wednesday, October 3rd at 7:00 pm: Getting to know you and planning for the year ahead.  We will brainstorm meeting topics, fundraising ideas and vote them into action!

PTH Facebook Invite

Hope Lutheran’s PTH invites you to join their Facebook group. This closed group was created for current parents and guardians that serves as another communication outlet for our families. It will be a place to post school-specific events and other reminders, as well as volunteer opportunities (did someone say “PIP”?!). All posts and invites are monitored by the PTH. To join this group, search for Parents & Teachers of Hope Lutheran School or click here. To see all the great things happening around our school, don’t forget to follow Hope Lutheran Church & School on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/hopeseattle/.
