The Explorers are a group of 6th grade parents that support the school by raising funds that directly benefit the students in the upcoming graduating class. The funds raised by the Explorers will pay for the 6th Grade End of the Year activities such as Celebration and Recognition Nights and also help offset the cost of any 6th Grade Trip(s).
Joining the PTA benefits your child; as well as, helps us to promote a sense of community and fellowship within our schools. We encourage all adult members of each family to join the Harrison Township PTA. Although we encourage and welcome parent volunteers at ALL of our events becoming a Member of the PTA does not commit more than your $12 donation.
Please remember there is no deadline to join, but we’re running a membership contest with the classes so if you join before October 18, 2019. The class with the most members, per grade, will receive a pretzel party.
