About the Armstrong PTA
The John S. Armstrong School first opened its doors in 1914 as the first school in the Highland Park Independent School District. Today, 108 years later, Armstrong continues to provide a uniquely positive and nurturing educational environment that fosters a lifelong love of learning and a sense of community responsibility.
The John S. Armstrong Parent-teacher Association of Highland Park was organized on November 19th, 1914 with a stated purpose: "to raise the standard of home and school, and to bring parent and teacher into a closer relationship with each other that they may cooperate more intelligently in the education of the child, and combine their efforts in the training for better citizenship."
Our PTA funds and organizes engaging events throughout the school year including STEAM and Reading events, Auction, Carnival, Bike Rodeo, Field Day, parent social events and coffees, and many more events that make Armstrong a fun and exciting place all year long. The PTA also ensures that our teachers and staff members feel loved and appreciated by funding and organizing monthly appreciation gifts and luncheons, and by gifting birthday and seasonal gift cards throughout the school year. The PTA also funds and operates the Armstrong Cafeteria; that is why volunteering in the cafeteria is so important to our school.
The Armstrong PTA wants every family to feel at home at Armstrong; you are part of the Armstrong Eagle Family and we are glad that you are here!
