Last week we had our High School Parent Panel for our incoming 9th grade parents. Thank you to everyone who joined us. We hope you left with enough information to help you start your HS journey.

If you are not already a member, add your voice to our cause. Join PTA TODAY!

On the Contact Your Legislator - Texas PTA - every child. one voice. ( page of the Texas PTA website you can sign up for “Under the Dome” email updates about Texas PTA policy initiatives. You can also find out who represents you (at the state as well as federal levels), and even message them directly from that page.
