Almost Everything You Need to Know about the Hamline PTA
What does the Hamline PTA do?
We do what we can to support Hamline as a place that works well for students, families, and staff - a place alive with learning and full of good vibes. We try to create opportunities for our community to learn and have fun together and find ways to support one another. We build pathways for family involvement and ensure the voices of families are heard. We are a partner in problem-solving and a resource for navigating school and district policies. Most of us like to dance.
