Multicultural Day Committee
At Harry B. Thompson Middle School PTSA, we believe in the importance of diversity and cultural understanding. That's why we created our Multicultural Committee, which works to bring together our school's different cultures. We are committed to supporting our children by working with the HBT language department and administration to set up our parent Multicultural Day, which provides a platform for our families to share their unique backgrounds and experiences. Our goal is to foster a sense of community and appreciation for cultural diversity.
