The PTA partners with the teachers and faculty to coordinate both fundraising events as well as other fun and educational events for the children of the Hampton Bays Elementary School.  The money we make goes right back into the school to help buy things that the teachers and staff need, for example:  area rugs for classrooms, tablets, sporting equipment for recess (balls, scooters), etc..  

 What's in it for you???

You will have an opportunity to make a difference in your child/children's school and within the community at large.  Working side by side with faculty and staff, you get to know the teachers and play a more active role in your child's education.  You get to participate in events that your child/children will attend and get to see them during the day.  And you will be acting as a positive role model for your child demonstrating the importance of volunteering and being active in the school and your community. 

The Hampton Bays Elementary School PTA has lots of exciting events planned over the next few months.  We are always looking for parents to join us and help.  Please get involved!! Feel free to reach out to any member for more information.


We need your help with the yearbook! Throughout the year you will be involved with activities, field trips and parties with your child's class.  We ask that you please submit any photos you take for the yearbook.  You can submit pictures from your iPhone and Galaxy phone using a free app - Balfour Image Share - and it's FREE!

Once you install the app, fill out the required fields including the School Project:  019995.  No Password is necessary.  Agree to the terms and you are ready to go.  

If you have any questions please contact Vickie Anne Single at
