PTA is a way to engage families and communities in encouraging educational success and supporting special programs and activities. Volunteering at Hayhurst School is a way for parents, guardians, grandparents, friends and community members to show the children how much they value education. There are many different ways to get involved and you can choose a commitment that best suits your family and your schedule.

Hayhurst PTA is affiliated with the National PTA and Oregon PTA.


You are welcome at PTA meetings even if you’re not a PTA member, but only PTA members get to vote.
