Awards & Accolades: The Legacy at HPPM

HPPM PTA AWARDS

HPPM was named as a National PTA School of Excellence for 2016-2018! This is a recognition program that supports and celebrates partnerships between PTAs and schools to enrich the educational experience and overall well-being for all students. As a National PTA School of Excellence, families feel welcomed and empowered to support student success, and PTA is a key partner for continuous school improvement.

 

In 2018-19, HPPM PTA also received the Golden Apple Award for 100% Faculty Membership. You can see more PTA awards from earlier years here.

 



Special volunteers who have served Hamilton Park Pacesetter Magnet in many ways are honored here. We continue to congratulate them and thank them for their service.
