MTK Accounts

If you haven't created or updates your account here in MTK, we have a little step-by-step tutorial to help you navigate the process. You don't have to be a PTO member to have an account! But it will simplify things for you and make it easy to purchase tickets to any PTO hosted events. You'll also be able to sign up for calendar updates, but please remember that you should always look to Dr. Sauceda's Jag News and communication from HRT staff for the most current updates, as they're the main pipeline of HRT info.

πŸ“š Book Fair πŸ“š

Thank you to our BOOK FAIR chairs and the HRT Library Media Specialist, for making this year's book fair a huge success. The profits from the book fair will go toward purchasing new Follett titles to add to the library. Mrs. Aiken is looking forward to replacing some of the dated non-fiction/science reading material! 


Special shout out to ✨WENDI DUNAVAN✨ for buying bagels for the HRT staff to enjoy while shopping during the preview sale event.
