HEPTA Book Club (6 to 7pm) and Open House (7 to 8PM) at HPS Learning Commons
Two part event! To kick off our series of Parenting Talks for 2018-19 we will be having a book club discussion. Join us by reading: "How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success" by Julie Lythcott-Haim. Paperback and Kindle versions available on Amazon.
"Relevant to parents of toddlers as well as of twenty somethings--and of special value to parents of teens--this book is a rallying cry for those who wish to ensure that the next generation can take charge of their own lives with competence and confidence."
Book Club Discussion 6 to 7PM in the HPS Learning Commons.
From 7 to 8 PM, join us to hear about Hollis Elementary PTA's plans for the year ahead, what enrichment activities and special initiatives at HPS and HUES funds raised will support, ask questions and sign up on the spot for open roles to help with in-school volunteer needs or behind the scene/outside of school planning of activities that support HEPTA's work.
You asked for evening times to learn about HEPTA and we want to provide that. Our monthly meetings (second Wednesday of the month at 10AM at HUES) are a typical non-profit business meeting where we review and vote to approve meeting minutes and financials, discuss upcoming volunteer needs, what we have to get the word out about, school leadership often attends to share a school update and HEPTA members are invited to request to be on the agenda to discuss possible new initiatives.
This Open House format on Nov. 15th is designed to provide a big picture view of HEPTA's work and learn specific ways you can get involved. Whether you are new to our school community or are a veteran HEPTA volunteer we hope you will join us!
