PTA » Home



Welcome to the Townsend Harris High School Parent Teacher Association. All students’ families are automatically members of the PTA. We encourage your active participation and support and look forward to seeing you at our monthly meetings.

Our Role and How You Can Contribute. The PTA facilitates communication between the home and school. The PTA  plays an active role in enriching the educational, cultural, and social experience of our children by funding various projects and programs in the school. It educates and informs parents through a variety of workshops and meetings. None of these activities would be possible without your voluntary contributions. 



Whether you are a new THHS parent or a veteran, you know how important the PTA is to our school. We help fund many of the wonderful activities our children enjoy at Townsend Harris.

Every parent/guardian of a THHS student is automatically a member of the PTA and has voting rights. However, a contribution of $100 per family provides the PTA with funds for its day-to-day operations. These membership dues pay for events throughout the year, after school activities and our school website. 

 You can donate via Pay Pal found on the PTA webpage through the THHS website. 

Your donations are absolutely essential for the success of the PTA mission. They are part of what has made Townsend Harris High School the premier institution that it is. Donations are accepted all year round and are tax-deductible!​​​​​​​ Please donate via PayPal, Debit or Credit Card.

For your generous contribution we will send you the current edition of the Townsend Harris High School Handbook! This publication will put at your fingertips vital information such as email addresses for faculty and staff, important phone numbers, graduation and community service requirements, a list of extracurricular activities, and the school calendar in one convenient place. Handbooks are available, just inquire with us at one of our monthly meetings.

PTA meetings are held once each month on a Thursday evening with refreshments, and provide you with an excellent way to stay informed as to what is going on at school.

This is your PTA! Please join us and play an active role in our many projects.

The Officers and Board of the THHS PTA.
