The Committee Chair position is generally a 2 year position for an individual or a couple who serves in leadership over a committee of teachers and parents supporting a particular department of Heritage Academy. Currently, committee chairs are requested for Senior Nights Chair (for all departments), Fundraising Chair, and Teacher Appreciation Chair.  

Attendance at monthly PTO meetings would be appreciated for Chair people. 

Meetings will generally be 1-1.5 hours. We spend our time addressing the various ways we can support our new school under our different areas of interest through our planned activities and efforts.  Each committee Chair will report on the efforts of their committee to meet the needs of their Department. Discussion will follow regarding ideas, solutions and proposed future activities. The PTO consists of parents and teachers of Heritage Academy Maricopa campus.  Members are encouraged to participate in any meeting and activity that they are able to in order to support the mission of the Maricopa Heritage Academy PTO.

***All Heritage Academy families are asked to pay yearly PTO dues of $20. These funds contribute directly to our mission below and will be applied on an as needed basis as we progress through the PTO activities of the year.

If a family has financial hardship, they are encouraged to seek an interview with Principal Titus so she is aware of the situation and can possibly offer helpful resources.

The mission of the Maricopa Heritage Academy Parent Teacher Organization is to:

  1. Raise funds to assist the various Departments of Heritage Academy meet the needs of their scholar’s education when there is a gap between funds and academic needs.
  2. Increase communication, cooperation and participation between scholars, parents and teachers with regard to scholar activities outside the classroom.
  3. Nurture a supportive, enriching, social and academic environment for Heritage Scholars as well as teachers and staff.

A teacher oversees the Scholar Council and assigns two scholars to attend the PTO meetings each month.
