Duveneck PTA’s Honorary Service Awards are designed to highlight and recognize a special group of outgoing 5th grade parents who – in addition to volunteering for many classroom and PTA activities over the years – also stepped forward into leadership roles to help provide the framework and organization for our many PTA activities.

The PTA HSA Committee is a group of parents who receive a list of outgoing 5th grade families from the school office. Following the list, they go through 10 years of Handbooks and PTA sign-up sheets to find the leadership contributions of these parents and combine that “data” with personal nominations – via either a paper form or an online survey – from our community.

Recipients of our Service Appreciation Award are for outgoing 5th Grade Parents who have Chaired one of our many PTA programs or events over the course of multiple years. They may have also served on the PTA Executive Board and/or Site Council to administer PTA programs and events.

Our Honorary Service Award is bestowed upon parents who have led one of our major PTA events: Harvest Carnival, the Just Parties Program, and/or Book Fair, and have served several years on the PTA Executive Board in multiple positions, including as PTA President.

Please stay tuned to the eNews for more information or email us at pta@duveneck.org.

We are parents and teachers who support Duveneck Elementary School in Palo Alto, CA. As a community, we help create the school we want our children to have by providing funding for school equipment and materials, hosting community events, and providing enrichment programs for parents, teachers and students.
