  • Creation of Harriet Tubman Middle School PTSA - Vote by August 31


    Dear Parents and Guardians of future Harriet Tubman Middle School students:

    A group of parents representing all four feeder schools is proposing to create a Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) for Harriet Tubman Middle School. We want to get feedback from parents about this proposal.  We are strongly committed to creating a parent-teacher-student association that is reflective of the overall Harriet Tubman school community and that is explicitly organized to address issues of access, inclusion, academic achievement, equity, and social justice for every student. We want the new PTSA to embody and support the mission of the Harriet Tubman Middle School Community.
    We are asking for your reply of an electronic survey by noon on Friday, August 31.
