President's Welcome

Dear Hale Cook families, staff and friends,

Welcome to the 2019-20 school year! If you are a new family or staff member joining us, please know we are thrilled to have you as a part of the Hale Cook community. If you haven't already, we would love to invite you to join the Hale Cook PTA. In joining, you will be added to our electronic newsletter where we keep you up to date on all at-large school activities. Everything from parent teacher conferences to resturant nights and school picnics! As parents we decided years ago that it was more important to raise money through community engagement activities than to have our students selling items on behalf of the school. We hope you will join us at one of our upcoming events.

We hold four PTA meetings per school year. At these meetings we provide childcare and dinner because we know evenings are busy and we appreciate your time! Your level of involvement is your choice, we use sign-up websites for parents to easily volunteer time or items for any given event.

What do we need from you right now? To join or renew your PTA membership.

Not interested in joining but still want to be in the know? Sign up for our newsletter or join us this Tuesday, August 27th at 6:00pm for our first PTA meeting! You can eat some dinner, hear from Principal Lynch, LINC Director Qiana McGee and be super up-to-date on all things Hale Cook.

We would love to see and hear from you. Feel free to reach out to me at anytime at

Danielle Dispenza

PTA President, August 2019
