Horton Middle PTSA


  • Friends,

    If you're reading this, then you've almost survived the first week, too! *Shew!* And your reward is that Monday is our first holiday, Labor Day! So, no school and the PTA Thrift Shop is closed. If you'd like to sign up for another of our Monday workdays, though, you can click here. The PTA Thrift Store is pivotal to our organization

    • it helps teachers/groups (like the band) earn dollars to pay for supplies that are not provided through school budgets (we ALL know those have been cut);
    • it provides funds to the PTSA to support things like the 5th grade academy, the accelerated reader program, and other important initiatives; and
    • it allows students to meet obligations! For instance, NJHS members, band members, and 7th grade students can earn towards their obligations with little or no cash out of pocket!

    So, a SPECIAL THANK YOU to those of you who have volunteered at the PTA Thrift Store.

    AND, a SPECIAL THANK YOU to those of you who have had the opportunity to join the PTSA for the 2018-19 year, For those who have not had the opportunity to do so yet, please take a moment to renew your annual membership here. You can also pick up your spiritwear at that site. If you need sizes not available on the site, please e-mail me and I'll take care of it.

    Lastly, remember that the PTSA is YOUR organization. If any of us can help you as you progress through the year or if you have ideas you think we should pursue, please reach out to one of us at hortonptsa@gmail.com.

    Congratulations, again, on your survival of the first week! Hope to see you at an event soon!

    The following is a list of Gift Cards Horton gets a percentage from each time you buy a gift card from stores you already shop in. For instance, I frequent Food Lion (on a daily basis practically), so I buy Food Lion gift cards every month and Horton receives 4.5%. If I bought $300.00 per month, Horton would get $13.50 just because I used my gift cards instead of writing checks. Click here for list of Gift Cards available.

    At the top left corner, you can choose to look at the list of retailers by category. You can purchase a gift card from just about every retailer. Please support our school and purchase the gift card before you shop.

    PLEASE CONSIDER buying gift cards at stores you already shop in and start planning for the holidays too.

    If you are a faculty member, place your order form in my box and I will place your order. If you are a parent, please e-mail me your order and I will send your order home with your child OR give it to you in the car rider line on Friday. Either way, you will need to let me know how you want me to deliver your order. Of course, I will not be able to deliver orders until I have your payment.

    Thank you for participating, and my hope is that we that earn thousands of dollars for the children at Horton Middle School.
