Join the PTO – As a PTO, 100% of your membership fee will remain at Hening to support programs such as the Back to School Picnic, enrichment programs, and teacher/classroom enhancements to name a few. During the previous school year, a few items the PTO purchased were class shirts for all students, recorders for fourth-grade students, game truck, student agendas and books for kindergarten students. Joining the PTO does not obligate you to attend every meeting, but participation is encouraged and welcome!

Payment can be made online via VENMO, send payment to Hening PTO ( Please include email address and student name  in the memo line). Payment can also be cash or check mailed to the school.
