Who We Are
Message from the President
Heritage High School PTSA
Dear Husky Families,
As we say good bye to summer and hello to our new academic year, I would like to extend a heartfelt welcome to each of you. To all freshmen, their families and any new students and families, welcome!!
My name is Lorise Rodriguez and I am returning as your 2016-17 PTSA President. We look forward to working with Mr. Lyons as we begin this new academic year.
In working with the Heritage High administration, our fundraising efforts will be concentrated on CollegeWise which is a program designed to train teachers to assist our students to increase their performance in the ACT exam. Additionally, we will focus our fundraising efforts to assist our teachers through our Mini-Grant Program, increase funding for our Scholarship Program, and to provide cultural programs that will benefit our students.
Of note, some changes we have been working on this summer to make things simpler and efficient.
August 24th at 5:30 respectively, and Meet the Teacher Night on September 15th at which time we will have our General Meeting. As part of our newly designed website, we are also making it possible to complete your membership and donate online!
Our volunteers are extremely important! I want to thank our volunteers who have helped at various events and luncheons this past year, and to thank those who have already committed their support this year. On behalf of the board, your efforts are invaluable and we could not function without you!!
On behalf of the 2016-17 PTSA Board, welcome and we look forward to meeting you at Freshmen Orientation on August 24th and at upcoming meetings and events this academic year. Remember we meet monthly on the second Tuesday in the Media Center at 6:30 pm unless otherwise posted.
