Dear Families, Administrators and Teachers:
The Hightower PTA knows that a strong partnership among our families, school leaders and community members is important to the success of our students and school. That’s why we are participating in the National PTA School of Excellence program, which grows partnerships between PTAs and schools to enrich the educational experience and overall well-being of all students.
At a National PTA School of Excellence, families feel welcomed and empowered to support student success, and PTA is a key partner for continuous school improvement. We feel Hightower Elementary and Hightower PTA can achieve that together—and the result will be national, state and community-wide visibility for the positive impact we are making together at Hightower Elementary.
We need your help! As part of the process, National PTA requests feedback from families, administrators and teachers at two points in the school year—the beginning and the end. Your feedback will help National PTA generate a customized guide which will provide specific recommendations for improving our family-school partnership and achieving excellence.
This short survey is the first step to completing this initiative. Please take 5-10 minutes to reflect on your experience at this school. This survey is completely anonymous. Click here to complete the survey. The deadline to complete it is Monday, November 12.
Based on the results of the survey, we will be forming a committee to review responses and determine the feedback that will be championed. Does this sound like a PTA program you’d really like to help with? Join us! Contact Hilary Dietz at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more!
We have also made the letter and survey available in Spanish:
