Meetings

Atlantic Karate and Seacoast United are our premium partners for public meetings.

PTA meetings are at 7:00 PM on the 3rd Tuesday of the month in the Hampton Academy cafeteria. Meetings occur September through May, excluding December, and are open to the public. Any additional public meetings will be announced with ample notice. Prior to each meeting the meeting agenda along with any other pertinent documents will be posted on this site under Meeting Reports as well as to our Facebook page. Meetings will be broadcast via Facebook Live for your convenience.

The PTA board also meets once a month, however, these meetings are not open to the public. Other meetings may occur, such as event committees, fundraising drives, community outreach, etc.

On rare occasions an emergency public meeting may be called where time is of the essence, as a result meeting notification may be last minute.
