Welcome to the Harrison School PTA!
The Harrison School PTA is an active volunteer organization where parents and teachers work together to provide educational, fun and enriching programs for children and their families. We sponsor many wonderful programs during the school year that are organized solely by parent volunteers.

Buzz Book & PTA Membership
New this year - Online Buzz Book: You can access the school directory (Buzz Book) on your mobile device as well as your computer anytime, anywhere! Sign up to include your children/family in the Harrison Buzz Book. To sign up online - click here.
Cost of membership is $10 only, and with that, access to the first ever mobile buzz book! For new families, the Buzz Book is a child and family directory where you provide information (address, phone numbers, email etc.) so that people in our Harrison Community can contact you (or your child) for birthday parties, play dates or just to say 'hi'. It is a great way to help your child(ren) adjust to school and stay in touch outside of school. Be sure to register online now. Any questions, please contact Jill Kopin (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Toni Ann Branca (email@example.com).
Click here to register for extra savings, bonus box tops and online shopping to earn box tops for our school. Our goal for this year is 20,000 box tops and last year we counted 16,000.
