- HHS 8th Grade Parent Night (for rising freshmen)
- Scoliosis Volunteers Needed
We are in urgent need of volunteers to screen our 6th & 8th graders for scoliosis on January 29th (9:15-11 & 2:30-4:15). We need both men & women to participate. Eight volunteers would train on Jan. 27th at Durham. Check out the Sign Up Genius if you’re available & interested. Thanks, as always! We can’t do it without you!
6th and 8th grade parents MAY opt out of the required screening by returning a signed parent letter. These were provided at Conference Week and again in January. If your child needs another form, or are unsure if one has already turned in, this information is available in the Connections area near Mr. Gravitt’s classroom.
- 6th Grade Dance
The “Glow Back to the 80’s” 6th grade dance will be held on Friday, February 7 right after school. We’ll post the permission slip on our website as soon as it’s available. Sign Up Genius links to donate drinks & volunteer for the event are below. The dance is free for PTSA members! Non-members will be able to buy a ticket the week of the dance.
- 7th Grade Dance Soon – Help Needed
Attn: 7th grade Parents
The 7th grade dance is scheduled for March 20th. We are still in need of a volunteer to be the chair person for the dance. Without a chair, the dance may not happen! It may sound scary to be in charge, but we promise it’s not that bad. Planning the dance can be lots of fun and there are a lot of people who can offer support. We just need a leader. Please email email@example.com if you are interested or for more information.

Durham PTSA is in need of leadership for the coming year. The majority of our current board will be moving on next year & we need dedicated volunteers to step up to start training for our ’20-’21 school year.
