    Enjoy the Benefits: The number one reason to join the Parent Teacher Association is to benefit your child. In doing so, you also help our school. By getting involved at your child’s school you’ll be part of the solution, helping make positive changes. But there are many more advantages. Here are just a few:

    • Every membership counts: Not only will you join the HMS PTA, you become a member of the Virginia PTA and the National PTA.
    • Virginia PTA Benefits: Are you aware of the many great benefits that you get for just being a member? See the Virginia PTA webpage to find out about special discounts your PTA membership includes.

    • Discover Great Resources: The PTA offers a variety of programs designed for parents as well as students.
    • Tap into a Network: Parenting is not easy—it helps to share ideas, concerns and experiences with other parents and educators in the community. PTA functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, building rapport and discussing issues that are on your mind.
    • Watch Yourself Grow: By volunteering with your PTA, you gain valuable experiences. It's an opportunity to put your skills and hobbies to good use for a good cause—your child and all children in the community.
