Get ready for the 2020-2021 school year with this step-by-step list!
*** You will need to re-register your PTA and volunteer info for each school year. ***
STEP 1: Become a PTA Member and Update Your Family Profile
- IMPORTANT: Update/Create your family profile online. You will need to re-register your information for the 2020-2021 school year in order to make purchase through this site.
- Join the PTA! Click here to purchase your annual PTA Membership.
Step 2: Purchase Your 2020-2021 School Supplies
- Purchase your 2020-2021 school supplies through the PTA. (From July 1-14 only!)
- View the 2020-2021 Student School Supply List by grade level. If you are not planning to purchase supplies through the PTA during the July 1-14 summer sale, this is the list that you will need.
Please note: Due to the current pandemic, there is a possibility that school supplies delivery/pickup may be delayed if the school year calendar changes. If you purchased school supplies during the spring supplies sale and have concerns about when you will receive your supplies, we are happy
to process refunds through July 14.
*** Due to PTA budget constraints, we will be unable to process any 2020-2021 school supplies refunds for pandemic delays after July 14. ***
Please contact Yolis Pelayo, School Supplies Chair, at school-supplies@hightowerPTA.org if you would like to request a refund or if you have any questions about ordering school supplies through PTA.

- Our Spirit Wear sale will be open soon! Be on the lookout on our PTA website and social media for when our 2020-2021 Spirit Wear will be available for pre-order.
Step 4: Update Your Volunteer Information for 2020-2021
- Select your volunteer preferences on the Volunteer Interest Form. Your name will be forwarded to the chair for the event/program. Selecting preferences does not commit you to volunteering.
- Complete your 2020-2021 PISD Background Check after August 31. PISD is in the midst of moving to a new volunteer background check system and will honor all valid 2019-2020 background checks through August 31, 2020. A current background check is required to volunteer at all PTA and school events, including field trips and class parties! Make sure you select Hightower (and any other schools that you wish), and allow 5-7 business days for your background check to be approved.
Background checks must be renewed with Plano ISD each school year before volunteering on campus.
