As you know, we will be unable to meet in person during the COVID-19 quarantine, and meetings will be conducted through the Herndon ES PTA YouTube Channel for the majority of the 2020-21 school year.  The best way to not miss any meetings or info is to subscribe to the channel.  We will keep you informed as soon as we have the details on this year’s calendar, and we encourage everyone to remain flexible as we adjust to the challenges together.

Join us on our new YouTube Channel on Thursday, Jan 28 for our next General PTA Meeting at 7 pm.


Don’t miss the opportunity to Meet the New Principal! As you now, Superintendent Tyson selected Ms. Marti Jo Jackson to serve as our interim principal beginning January 4, 2021. Ms. Jackson will remain in place until the permanent principal is selected. Ms. Jackson has deep connections to Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) having served as principal for many years at Frost Middle School. She has also served as an assistant principal and is a veteran teacher as well. Since her retirement she has served successfully as interim principal on several occasions throughout FCPS. Ms. Jackson also serves as an adjunct instructor, university supervisor for teacher interns, and co-presenter at the Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education at George Washington University.  Learn more about her plans for HES and interact with her at our next PTA General Meeting.  Academic coaches will also be there to give you tips on how to support your child’s performance as we head into the second half of the school year.

This page will be updated as we get closer to the meeting with the Agenda and Guest Speaker on our Featured Topic. 

Your PTA Board members are keeping busy this fall with PTA conferences and workshops!  A big focus for our 2020-21 PTA is keeping families engaged and connected to the school while supporting our teachers and staff to the best of our ability.  Do you have ideas or thoughts on how PTA can support you or the school?  Please feel free to email your PTA President, Sara Murphy, at [email protected].  We’d love to hear from YOU!
