Henderson International School PTA is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization that works hand-in-hand with teachers, school administration, and parents to enhance the joy and well being of HIS students. Collectively, we work to build a sense of inclusion and community which complements and enriches the learning environment. HIS PTA achieves this by hosting on-campus events such as the Back to School BBQ, Student Triathlon, Book Fair, Holiday Shop, Spring Fling carnival, and Summer Kickoff, as well as various off-campus events like family fun nights. For teachers and school administration, HIS PTA hosts various annual Teacher Appreciation events. In order to provide these hosted events, HIS PTA raises funds year-round through various affiliate programs such as, Amazon Smile, Box Tops, Krogers, Escrips, and our largest fundraiser is our annual Silent Auction.
Hello friends of Henderson International School,
On behalf of the HIS PTA Board, I would like to welcome you and your family back to school. We look forward to wonderful 2020-2021 school year.
For those of you who may not know, my name is Jennifer Mittin, and this is my second year as President of the HIS PTA. What I love the most about being the PTA President at Henderson International School is working with you, our parents, teachers, staff, families, and friends in creating events for our children that are fun and memorable. I also enjoy the opportunity to honor our faculty and staff to thank them for the incredible job they do every day. The purpose of the HIS PTA is to bring us together as a school community. The PTA board is committed to that purpose despite any challenges that may lie ahead.
Normally in the beginning of the year, the PTA holds several back-to-school events for HIS families and faculty. However, due to the pandemic, we will not be hosting any on-campus events at this time. To welcome back our teachers and staff, the PTA provided wellness gift bags and snacks for the teacher’s lounge. The PTA is also providing HIS spirit shirts for all the students within the next few weeks! While our traditional events may look different this year, we know that there is nothing more important than the safety and health of our students, teachers, staff, and families. With that in mind, our goal is to keep you informed of exciting events happening this year and it is our hope that you will join us by becoming a PTA member.

On behalf of myself and the PTA Board, we want to thank you for your continued support as we strive to do what is best for our children, faculty, and staff.
As we look forward to an exciting school year, I hope that you and your families are staying safe and healthy.
HIS PTA President 2020/2021
