Letter from the PTA President

August, 2016

Dear Hunting Ridge Families,

It’s that time of year – the annual Hunting Ridge PTA Membership drive. The PTA exists for one reason – to provide programs and activities that support the Hunting Ridge students and families in both educational and fun ways! To become a Hunting Ridge PTA Member, there is a nominal fee of $10 per family.

NEW THIS YEAR – Complete the PTA Membership Form Online

In addition to your PTA Membership Benefits, you will also have access to our Online Directory. We will no longer be offering printed directories, however you will be able to print the Online Directory from home.

In addition to your membership dues, we are asking that you consider a donation – any amount is greatly appreciated. Each year, the Hunting Ridge PTA spends approximately $40 for each student per year on all of the wonderful assemblies and activities that we provide. All direct donations are tax deductible as the PTA is a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, and a personalized tax letter will be provided for all monetary donations.

The Hunting Ridge PTA promotes many events and activities throughout the year:

  • Coordinates special events including: After-School Specials, Back to School Celebration,
  • Book Fair, Dads and Donuts, Moms and Munchies, Multicultural Fair, Open House Ice-
