Welcome Back to School

Greetings from The Art and Design High School Parent-Teacher Association! We hope you had a wonderful Summer. We would like to officially welcome new and returning families to the 2020-2021 school year. 

The principal, teachers and staff have been busy planning for a new remote and blended learning model and the PTA would like to thank them for all their hard work. The pandemic has created challenging times for everyone and we ask all parents to please have patience while the school works out any kinks in the new learning process. Students should report remotely to school on Wednesday, September 16.

All parents and guardians at the High School of Art & Design are automatically members of the Parent Teacher Association (PTA)!  A great way to help the school and meet other families during this challenging time is to Get Involved and Attend PTA meetingsRun for Office on the PTA executive board or School Leadership Team (SLT), or sign up for a committee and Volunteer for events. Join us and share your skills, talents, time, ideas, laughs and smiles with us and we promise you will have a great time.  

We would love to stay connected with you, so please add yourself to our mailing list for our weekly news and updates, and add contact@artanddesignpta.org to your address list. (Please note that the PTA mailing list is separate from the school’s mailing list which is handled by Parent Coordinator, Janeen Johnson.) Visit our newly redesigned website at https://artanddesignpta.org/ . We would like to thank Tatiana Kligerman (parent of junior), and Miguel Chavez (parent of alumni) for all of their work and guidance with the redesign.
