Harding PTSA

Last Updated: 10/13/2021 12:41 AM

The mission of the Harding PTSA is to create a team of Parents, Teachers, and Students working together to build a positive learning environment at Harding Middle School.

Together we will:

  • Build an atmosphere conducive to education, communication, community spirit, and friendship.
  • Create a supportive network for families.
  • Promote the active involvement of all constituent groups to enable student success
  • Maintain a safe and welcoming building, and sustain a strong Harding community.

Harding Hangout is October 22 from 6:30 - 8:30







The Harding Hangouts are back! Our Halloween Hangout is October 22nd from 6:30p - 8:30p. Students can hangout, dance (if that's their thing) or play some games like cornhole and get pictures taken at the photobooth.

Volunteers are needed to make this a success, please consider signing up today. We need help!!!! :)

We will be outside on the baseball field (weather permitting) and will move inside, if needed.

Students are encouraged to wear a school-appropriate costume and should bring a mask in case we move inside.

Admission is free for PTSA members and $5 for non-members (it's not too late to join). Pizza, snacks, and drinks will be available for purchase. Admission comes with 2 tickets that can be redeemed at the food and drink table.

Food donations such as baked goods don't feel quite right this year, so we're hoping to collect a small donation instead so we can purchase additional snacks to have on hand. Donations can be sent via Paypal (http://paypal.me/HardingPTSA) and we thank you in advance!


PTA Reflections is a fall tradition where students submit their original works of art and each building has winners who go on to compete for prizes at the district level and then possibly on the state level. 

Additional details can be found in the Student Information Packet. Contact Annie S (nutrainer@gmail.com) with any questions.
