SUBJECT: February News

We have a lot of new news this month so buckle up!

Friendship Parties/Huff Gives Back

Last year in addition to our Valentine's/ Friendship Parties our students participated in some fun service projects.  This year's parties will look a little different (no passing out cards, but they will still have a treat and plenty of fun) and we are excited that the service project piece will still happen!  The school is hosting a sock and hygiene drive for the whole month, so check Mrs. Allen's Smore Newsletter for more details (and next week's daily dress up themes)!

Pizza Profits for our PTA

Thursday, February 18th from 5-9pm is Huffman Spirit Night at Palio's Pizza at the Southwest corner of Park & Preston.  (It is kind of tucked in away from the street and facing Market Street.)  Mention Huffman PTA and we receive 20% of the proceeds!  This offer is good for dine-in or carry out.

Black History Month Celebration

Typically in February we would celebrate Black History Month with Black Excellence Night... We may not be able to celebrate in person, but we certainly can take advantage of our Community Facebook page and share our favorite stories, people, moments, poems, books, photos, and more.  Visit our page HERE and learn more.

You've Got Questions, We've Got Answers!

This is an opportunity for current, new-ish, transfer, possibly incoming, or even experienced Huffman parents to meet and chat about our incredible school.  We will send out a Zoom link that week, so be looking for that!

SKI Plano Event

The PISD Education Foundation hosts a yearly fundraiser to benefit programs and initiatives that support students, families, employees, and classrooms.  Although this year's event must be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home, it promises to still be wonderful.  For more information visit

Online Auction Fundraiser

Every year the PTA hosts an online auction where 100% of the proceeds benefit the PTA and our students!  The success of this auction depends heavily on the Huffman Community, to gather donations and then bid on the items!  This year may be a little different, but we still want to work together to collect as many awesome items as we can.  If you have a connection to a business or a great idea, please reach out to Sarah Thomas and let her know.  Her email is and she looks forward to hearing from you!

PTA Board 21-22

It is about time for us to start getting together the PTA Board for next year.  If you are interested in joining our team, use the form HERE to volunteer.  If you would like to help but aren't ready to join the Board, we could use you on our nominating committee. Email if you'd like to be on the committee.

Also, we need YOUR help!  All parents, but especially parents with virtual students, we need your pictures, which you can submit through the google form HERE!

One thing to note, your child's computer screen cannot be visible in the photos.  And know that not all photos will be used, but we want as many options as we can to try to include as many children as we can!
