Heath PTO Meetings

Heath PTO Community Meetings

Heath PTO Community Zoom Meetings Heath PTO meetings are open to everyone in the Heath community, including parents and caregivers, and faculty and staff. The meetings often feature presentations from the Principal, Vice-Principal, Teachers and Teaching Specialists, and Community Members.

In the past, Heath PTO "First Friday Coffee Hours" normally happened on the first Friday of each month at 8:05 am in the Cafeteria. Since we cannot meet in person, we will instead host a number of virtual PTO community sessions on Zoom. Our objective is to share and discuss major PTO milestones and plans but also give everyone the opportunity to ask questions and share ideas. Zoom details will be shared a week prior to the event.

Brookline Superintendent and Parent Leaders Meetings

Parent leaders from across the PSB district are invited to a monthly information-sharing meeting with the PSB Superintendent. Typically, the parent leaders are the PTO leadership at each school as well as the elected parent representatives to each School Site Council. The list of parent leaders is maintained by Betsy Fitzpatrick, Assistant to the Superintendent, who is also responsible for scheduling the meetings and sending out invitations. On occasion, a Heath representative may share notes of the meeting here.
