why get involved?

the number one reason to get involved in the ptso is to benefit your child!! 

In doing so, you also help Highland Lakes School. But wait, there are also many other advantages:

  • Get Connected: There is no better way to know what is happening at HLS!

  • Tap into a Network: PTSO functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, building rapport and discussing issues that are on your mind.  You can share ideas, concerns, and experiences.

  • Witness Improvement: By getting involved you'll be part of the solutions, helping to make positive changes

  • Watch Yourself Grow:  By volunteering, you put your skills and hobbies to use for a noble cause--your child and all the children in the community.  

  • Your child benefits: When parents get connected to the school, children do better.  Research shows children whose parents are involved get better grades, do better on tests, and have fewer discipline problems at school.
