    "Yes, the PTA works hard to raise funds for the school and pay for things that were cut in the budget. They are a group of stay-at-home moms with the time to do so. The school is awesome with fabulous teachers who educate and love your children. The administration is first class and they truly care for the children. However, I too agree the PTA is rude, unprofessional and act like an extremely tight knit click of high school girls. Give a non PTA parent a chance, you might find them kind and helpful as well."

    "Hawkes Bluff Elementary is an amazing school. Originally I considered placing my children into a private school, but was urged to check out HBE. 8 years later, not only have I saved high tuition fees, but I feel my children have received more services and have been challenged academically! Most of the staff has been part of HBE for 10+ years and don't seem to ever want to leave. Having a veteran staff really says something about a school! The staff truly loves and cares for the students. Communication to the staff is welcomed and easy! As far as the PTA, they are a bunch of hard working VOLUNTEERS! The PTA Board supports the school wholeheartedly, and it saddens me to read the mean comments about a group of ladies whom put all of the HBE student body first! The family events and fundraisers are what the children will remember most, not how much they raised, but how much fun they had helping their community and being an active citizen! "Clicks" are only what they seem, and I am sure the PTA would welcome any help from any volunteer."

    "HBE rocks! From the teachers to the kids, this is a great school! EVERYONE is on board to make this the best school around! There's a few negative comments about the PTA, but the truth is HBE's PTA is extremely active, they do great things for our school that due to budget cuts the school would not be able to afford and as a parent what I appreciate most is the amazing experience & happy memories of their Elementary school! The Fall Festival & Food truck event was a blast! Keep the fun family times coming!"

    "I think this school is great. The admin is wonderful. My son has Aspergers and the school and teachers are great with him. He has become very attached to some children and I believe that his ESE specialized teachers have helped him become a bit more social. He is also in love with the PTA president and the treasurer we have now. They have been very nice and friendly to him. I work closely with the PTA and have been able to be a room mom as well. I'm not sure if those who have made negative comments about the PTA really know them. Have they even tried to talk to them? Everyone has bad days. I know the PTA is always looking for volunteers and they have open meetings for parents to come. They have to work with the times and dates they are giving so some events are in the day but there are plenty at night. As for the PTA always being together, that is true. They have to be together because every month (including the summer months) there is a PTA function. The PTA either puts on, funds or participates in the functions every month."
