What happens during PTA meetings and why should I attend?
We understand that, as parents, you have a full schedule, but meeting with us is easy and an important part of supporting your child's time at THHS. Our agenda includes:
  • Principal Brian Condon and Parent-Coodinator Dafne Manhart presenting updates on our school;
  • Assistant Principals discussing programming, budgets, other details;
  • Experts providing strategies on college admissions and financial aid;
  • Students speaking about unusual courses or activities, or promoting clubs;
  • Elected officials speaking on educational issues that will affect our school; and
  • Parents giving feedback and ideas to help influence and make improvements to Townsend Harris.
  • Parents receiving resources such as the 2019-20 Parent Handbook which complies important information into a single document, including test dates, grading policies, diploma requirements, the bell schedule, faculty offices, and much more.

When do the meetings take place?
  • We meet once a month (with light refreshments) in the student cafeteria downstairs on the first floor.
  • Parents usually arrive starting at 6:30 pm, and the meeting itself starts at 7:00 pm. We usually end at around 8:00 pm or 8:30 pm.
