We are excited to announce that will be starting our Harmony Endeavor Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) back up for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year. We will have our first meeting sometime during the first week of August before school starts on the same night as our back to school orientation. As soon as that date is set, I will be communicating that information to you.
Membership into the PTO is granted to all Harmony Endeavor parents, guardians and staff.
The first order of business at our first meeting is to form a nominating committee to begin the election process of our executive committee. The officers of the executive committee will consist of President, First Vice-President, Second Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Assistant Treasurer and Parliamentarian.
I am looking forward to partnering with you to help move our school forward in having a great school year and doing greater things! If you have questions or need to reach out to me, you can contact me by email at lchappell@harmonytx.org.
Have a great summer!
