Please join us at our next General Membership Meeting on Thursday, February 11th at 7pm.  We'll be sharing lots of exciting program and event updates! This will be a virtual meeting held via Zoom.

Our Hampstead Middle School student members are AMAZING - these awesome kids are an integral part in our organization, and we could not hold nearly as many fun events and programs without their help.  As a PTSA Student Member, children earn volunteer hours, make new friends, and learn the value of helping others and our Hampstead community.  The students meet on average twice a month before school.  If your child is interested in this great group, please contact Sarah Wisecarver (PTSA Kids Chair) at for more information.

PTA Reflections Art Program
Reflections Theme

"I Matter Because..." is the theme for the 2020-21 Reflections Art Program which has been bringing the arts to life for more than 10 million students since 1969. And New Hampshire state PTA and its members, families and kids are on the forefront of this amazing program, which increases community awareness of the importance of arts in education. Each year, the Hampstead schools participate in this program. Participation is easy, exciting and empowering! Reflections is a competition that encourages students to:

  • Unleash creative talents and be inspired
  • Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork
  • Experience the fun and joy of making art
  • Tap into critical-thinking skills to create art inspired by the annual theme
  • Receive positive recognition for their original works of art
We are pleased to announce that the PTA Reflections art competition is now accepting entries! Details on how to enter, and the rules are posted on our Reflections program page. Please note that entries will be collected in person at each school. Deadline has passed and judging is taking place the week of December 14th - stay tuned for our state level participant announcement! Virtual presentation of all entries will occur via video in early January. Any questions may be directed to 

Box Tops are now even easier to redeem for cash for your schools!  We are so excited to transition to their new online redemption - all you need to do is download the Box Tops App and scan your receipts - NO MORE CLIPPING Box Tops off products!  Please click on the "Programs" tab for more information - we are still accepting non-expired paper box tops. Please contact us with any questions at
