Parent Forum

Parent Forum Logo

HGS Parent Forum is an independent PTO/PTA style group which was founded by Howard Gardner MI Charter School parents in 2016. All parents of enrolled children are automatically members of this active group and no membership documents or fees are required. Parent Forum’s functions include: overseeing operation of the school store, providing funding for supplies and special projects, assignment and coordination of classroom parents to assist HGS teachers throughout the year, planning and funding several school events throughout the year and hosting fundraisers to make these activities and many more possible. Meetings are held monthly at the school, and all are welcome and encouraged to attend and most importantly, participate. Only when our membership is supportive, strong and active can we create a community that will allow our children to flourish.
