PTA Membership Q+A

  • What does it mean to JOIN the PTA? "Joining" simply means you have an active membership (have paid your 2021-2022 membership dues). Each school year we ask parents and faculty who would like to stay informed and participate in our PTA programs to pay their dues and "join" us in building a community of support and enrichment for our Henking and Hoffman students and staff! Active members also get special perks like access to our Online Directory, early access to sign up for special events, and exclusive discount codes at local businesses. (AND, next week members will have first access to our new Spirit Wear online store that will be launching! You'll get a chance to shop before the general public and grab your favorite new items before they sell out!)

  • How much does it cost to join? The 2021-2022 membership dues are $20 and goes directly to the PTA to help fund our programs and initiatives. Our membership dues constitute a large portion of our budget, so your contribution is SO appreciated! You can pay your membership dues by clicking here!

  • Do I HAVE to commit to volunteering or attend meetings if I join? Absolutely not!! While the meetings are super informative (each principal from Henking and Hoffman attend and answer all of our questions!) they are not mandatory at all. Volunteering is also completely optional.
