Parent Teacher Organization

We are eager to welcome parents, teachers and friends to our Parent Teacher Organization. We encourage you to be involved. Whether you’ve been with Healthy Start Academy for years or are new and eager to bring great new ideas and energy to us, we look forward to walking side-by-side with you, improving education, creating the fellowship that makes the Academy a great environment, and supporting our students and faculty. We’re so happy to add you to the family.

Make sure you sign up for the PTO so we can add you to our email list. (Current privacy policy won’t allow us to contact you except through the school if you don’t sign up on our separate list. That may mean you don’t receive updates as quickly as our informal parent-to-parent email.)

Suggested dues are $5, and we put the money toward teacher recognition gifts; however, dues are not a pre-requisite for joining our PTO. We want everyone to help us have the best school in Durham. We will have a number of opportunities for you to spend a few hours a year with us.

To learn more, please contact the Main Office. The telephone number is (919) 956-5599.


We hold meetings every month during the school year. Upcoming meeting dates are posted in the website calendar, school newsletter, and Facebook.


To volunteer, please contact us.


Writing a check for any PTO activity? Please make the check out to Healthy Start Academy, and write PTO on the memo line to the left of your signature.
