  About the HPTA
  Hanover Parent-Teacher Alliance, Inc.The Hanover Parent Teacher Alliance (HPTA) raises money to fund crucial academic enrichment for all grade levels within our Hanover Public Schools. We hope that 100% of Hanover families will join PTA to aid in enhancing the curriculum for all grade levels and to support community building within Hanover Public Schools. Last year HPTA raised over $50,000-all of which goes directly back to our schools.

Why become a member?
As a parent who realizes the importance of enrichment in your child's education, joining this team of concerned parents will make a world of difference to all Hanover students. 

  • Your dues fund exciting in-school programs and other important enrichment activities that would otherwise not happen.
  • Your volunteer time in the schools assists the teachers in meeting their highest in-class potential and, even more importantly, increases the home-school connection that has proven invaluable to the learning process.
  • Your membership includes invitations to attend member socials where you can enjoy time with other involved parents.

Show Your Support
We are all PTA. Please join us to support teachers and students! There are three ways to show your support:

  • Donate $15 to become a member, $40 to support your child’s school.  Dues make up a major part of our PTA income.
  • Donate your gift of time. Volunteer!
  • Support our Fall and Spring fundraisers.

How do I become a member?
Fill out the membership form (linked below) with a check made out to HPTA and return it to school with your child or mail it to P.O. Box 92, Hanover MA, 02339, Your contribution will give you membership in the HPTA and a Hanover Euro car decal.
