ALL FAMILIES should fill out their Free & Reduced Meals Form! CLICK HERE It gets us MORE FUNDING FOR OUR KIDS' EDUCATION! It helps ALL of us! They affect the amount of federal financial support that PHA receives which means more funding opportunities to support our children's education, as well as increasing the school meals we can provide our kids. Right now about 55% of us have turned them in, but we want to get up to 90%. No matter where we are from, ALL families in the United States have the same right to apply for and receive free & reduced priced school meals, and submitting this form is not deemed a public charge. The form does not affect citizenship status.

International Night 2020
Our family community is strong, kind, and talented - like our students. We are made up of about 780 families representing 1100 PHA students. About 250 families have more than one child going to PHA, so over half of our students have siblings at PHA. While one third of us live in Somerville and about 12% of us live in Cambridge, we come to PHA from 47 cities and towns in Massachusetts from as far south as Fall River and as far north as Haverhill. We speak over 25 languages at home with our most common being Haitian Creole, followed by Portuguese, Spanish, Nepali, Amharic and Arabic. This just scratches the surface of who we are, but get to know us better by reaching out to any of our FAB family leaders.
