What does the PTA Do?
The Parent Teacher Association, founded in 1897, believes that the education of children is a shared responsibility of the home and the school. PTA works to benefit children and to support parents. The Hamilton PTA works very hard to bring a variety of fun family events to our community as well as provide funding for a multitude of educational activities within our school. These events range from Family Fun Night in September to the carnival in June, with dozens of other events scheduled in between. We hope you'll join our PTA team!
