Open to all HSMSE parents and guardians, attending the PTA General Membership meetings is the best way to learn what is happening at our school. PTA meetings include an update by our Principal or Assistant Principals, information from the PTA Executive Board, and a themed presentation or discussion to help parents engage with their children’s education and prepare for college.

Meeting dates are listed on the school calendar. PTA emails will inform families of meeting dates and topics as well.


Each spring, the PTA Executive Board reviews the expenses of the previous school year, to determine anticipated expenses for the upcoming school year. Once approved by the Executive Board, the budget is presented to the General Membership at the last PTA meeting of the school year for approval. Approval of the budget means our parent body has committed to raising the funds, whether by personal donations or fundraising initiatives.
At the June 2023 meeting, the General Membership of the HSMSE PTA approved a $258,500 operating budget for the 2023-24 academic year.
