PTSA Welcome Letter

Welcome back OLHMS Mustangs!

My name is Teresa Shane, and I am your OLHMS PTSA President for the 2021-2022 school

year. This is my third year as president, and I have a 7th grader at OLHMS this year. As a

new-to-middle-school mom three years ago, I realized that the PTSA is a little different than the PTA at the elementary schools. For starters, PTSA stands for Parent Teacher Student Association. We encourage and look forward to having parents and their students, along with

teachers, join the association and learn what we are all about. We welcome students' opinions and ideas on what we can do for the school. Student members are welcome to all PTSA meetings.

Through our memberhub newsletters to all members, and through our monthly meetings, parents will have the opportunity to learn what is going on around school. They will also be able to meet other parents, and help in supporting the needs of our school. A few of the things that were done last year thru the PTSA include; co-purchasing water bottles for all students, hosting the Halloween drive thru spooktacular, hosting teacher appreciation events, treated students to a virtual magic show, held a beautiful in person 8th grade social, and treated all of the students to an end of the year pizza party. These events are not possible without volunteers, and PTSA member support.

At our first meeting on Tuesday, August 31st at 7:00 pm, you will have an opportunity to meet the D123 Superintendent, Dr. Enderle and OLHMS Assistant Principal, Dr. Hantson along with the new PTSA board, and have a discussion on what the PTSA can do to help

our kids this year. Membership is $7 per "parent" (which is any parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, etc) or staff member and just $5 student member. When your student is a PTSA member it gets them into our open gyms for free. Our first open gym is scheduled for September 16. Be one of the first to

sign up in person at tonight’s open house or online, and you will have a chance to win a gift

card!
