The HWES PTA is a group of parent volunteers dedicated to collaborating with teachers and community to enhance the educational experience for all children at HWES. We are focused on developing programs and activities that support our children’s educational success, health, and well-being through strong family and community engagement.  Our Executive Board and Committee Chairs put in countless hours to assist the administration in making our school environment one of the best in FCPS.  To read the PTA By-laws, click here.
