What is the Hanover PTA? The Hanover PTA is the Executive Board for all of the school PTA’s in Hanover. We manage all of the fundraising and are stewards of the funds raised. We work closely with administration to find the best ways to support the schools through volunteer efforts and grants to bring enriching educational experiences to all students. We also oversee the building PTA’s to ensure consistent practices and excellent experiences for all students. How do your children benefit from the PTA? The Hanover PTA supports all students in Hanover in grades K-12. Funds raised help with fun community building activities, educationally enriching field trips and special guests, speakers and technology improvements. In 2018-19 the Hanover PTA supported the schools with nearly $150,000 in grants, including over $35,000 in new reading materials for the HPS 2700 Literacy Initiative.

How do we raise funds? Money is raised through several fundraisers each year. These include the Boon Supply/Cookie/Soup Fundraiser at HMS and HHS, the Elementary school Fun Run and our Direct Donation campaign district wide. How can I help? Support our fundraisers, volunteer in the buildings, attend a meeting. We always welcome new faces and ideas and of course your generous donations are essential to the Hanover PTA mission to support all schools.
Our goal for this year's Direct Donation Campaign is $20,000 or $5,000 per school. To contribute please click the Donate Now button below. You may choose where your donation goes, 100% will go directly to the school(s) you select. A suggested amount is $40 per school your children attend. We appreciate an additional $15 to the Hanover PTA. You may also wish to make a donation specifically for Staff hospitality events held throughout the year and during Staff Appreciation week in May. This will be the only collection for staff events this year. Funds raised will help cover programs and events this year not covered in the school budget.
