Dear Parents, Students and Teachers,

O. Henry Middle School welcomes you to a promising new school year! As parents, we all support our children in their educational journey. As a PTA, we work collaboratively to support our school through many events as well as educational and volunteer opportunities.

PTA is the oldest and largest volunteer child advocacy organization in the nation; thank you for supporting our efforts to make every child’s potential a reality.

Your membership, donations, and volunteerism help us

maintain a long-standing tradition of promoting an enriching and nurturing learning environment and exceptional middle school experience for all our students.

There is a role for EVERY parent at O. Henry and we welcome and encourage you to attend our meetings and participate at the level that best suits you and your family!

Your support and engagement ensure our collective success as we partner together to impact the lives of O. Henry students.

Everyone benefits when schools and families work together to support learning and we strive to create a welcoming and fun

atmosphere for parents to be involved at our school. Our number one goal is to help families and teachers connect and support one another.

It’s quick and easy to join online. You may also email us requesting a paper form although online payment is preferred. Should you have any questions, feel free to contact me!

Best Regards,

Christy Allen Merritt
2023-24 OHMS PTA President
