Here’s just some of what our teachers are saying about the work the PTO does for Haines!
From Team 6-1...
“We are so very appreciative for all the PTO does for Haines staff and students. From the Copy Cats to the Book Fair, to Teacher Appreciation Week, and the generous donations they have made to help individual students attend Outdoor Education. Thanks for everything!”
Katie Hoffman – 6-1 Team Lead and Social Studies Educator
“The PTO is the connection we have with the parents. It's comforting to know that if myself or my department needs assistance with something, we can reach out to our PTO and they are always eager to help in any way possible. I'm amazed by the hard work the commitee for the 5k has put into planning the event (especially Mrs. Czerniak). We are very fortunate that we have such dedicated parents.”
Samantha Trimarco – P.E. Educator
“The PTO has been very good to our PE department. I believe they recognize the importance of exercise in our students' lives. They helped to purchase fitness room equipment, an iPod Music dock, and helping with our Haines 5k Run. I am very thankful for a supportive PTO.”
Gregory Born – P.E. Educator
“The PTO has been very generous and helpful to the music department over the years. The Haines PTO honors the memory of a former parent through the annual Amy Backer Award. This scholarship, funded by the PTO, goes to a talented and deserving graduating 8th grade band member to use to further their music education and musical experiences at St. Charles North High School.”
Erik Swenson – Exploratory/Band Educator
