Welcome to the PTA!

Dear Crockett Families,

I’d like to welcome you to Crockett Middle School in what I expect to be an exciting year for our children.  My name is Lisa Schulz and I am proud to be your PTA President for the 2022-2023 school year.  I’m looking forward to the upcoming school year with great anticipation.  On behalf of all of the PTA officers, I welcome you.

A little about me and why I decided to get involved: As an HTSD parent since 2009, I saw first hand the importance of a vibrant and welcoming PTA.  At the elementary level, there were plenty of volunteers and lots of enthusiasm. As the kids got older, however, parent involvement dropped off.  By middle school, it was significantly lower.  To me, this was just so backwards!  Our kids, and our kids’ schools, need us most during those challenging 6-8th grade years.  Dealing with the pandemic has made our partnership even more valuable.

How you can get involved: Our PTA meeting are typically the second Thursday of each month at 7pm. This year, meetings will be in person unless otherwise noted.  I encourage you to join us to see firsthand how we can work together to make our children’s year at Crockett meaningful and impactful.  Our meetings are open and inclusive and you’ll be able to hear from and connect with many of our Crockett leadership (Principal, Vice Principals, teachers, etc.), so you can also be informed about what is happening daily and engaged with the people that help make it all happen for our kids.

The PTA board has met over the summer to brainstorm for what we anticipate will be a fun and productive year. We hope that all of our families will participate in the events and activities that will make our school a more enjoyable place to work and learn.

Of course, to make these events a success, we need your help.  You are an essential part of our success so please take a moment to consider becoming a committee Chairperson or helper.  Please continue to check back for additional information on ways you can get involved.

I’m looking forward to working with all of you this year.  If you’d like to be added to our PTA mailing list, please email us at crockettnjpta@gmail.com.  I also welcome your ideas and am happy to answer any questions you may have about the upcoming school year.

All the best,

Lisa Schulz
Crockett Middle School PTA President
