The Homewood PTA is proud to present our Cooks Night Out fundraiser! Let the cook of the house have the night off and enjoy a delicious dinner at either Aurelio’s or Potbelly here in Homewood. A percentage of all sales from both restaurants goes back to the Homewood PTA.
Dear PTA members, District 153 families, teachers, administrators, and community members,
The Homewood PTA turns 105 this year, and throughout our history we’ve had the great pleasure of helping supply our schools with materials, funds, volunteers, educational programs, and whatever else they may need. While we prefer to keep our focus on the children and schools, money must also play a part in our organization. Due to the growing costs of school programs and materials, as well as the rising dues at both state and national PTA, the price of membership will be going up for the first time in more than 10 years to $15 for the 2018-2019 school year.
This is not a decision we make lightly, but one we found necessary for the health of our organization. As always, every dollar that the PTA takes in goes toward the schools and toward furthering our mission. All members of our executive and general board are volunteers.
As always, we appreciate all of the support and participation that we receive from our families, teachers, administrators and community members. Thank you.
Homewood PTA is offering $10 Picture Fun-Pacs as one of our fundraisers this year. Van-Gogh Photography company has graciously offered Homewood PTA 100% profit from sales of our Picture Fun-Pacs!
Here’s how it works: Your student will bring home a Fun-Pac, and if you would like to purchase the Picture Fun-Pac simply return $10 cash or check payable to Homewood PTA in a sealed envelope with your student’s name on it, and labeled “Picture Fun-Pac”. If you choose not to buy the Picture Fun-Pac please return it back to school with a note within 5 days of receiving the Fun-Pac.
Homewood PTA Needs Your Help with Book Fair!
The Homewood PTA is in need of volunteers for our Fall Book Fair, November 1st through the 3rd (with setup on October 30th). If you are a paid member of PTA and can help in any way it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for supporting the Homewood PTA Butter Braids fundraiser! Pick-up will take place on Thursday, November 14 at 5:30-7:00 p.m. at James Hart.

Those who can not make it may send a representative
