Your PTO is made up of hard-working parents who volunteer their talents and time in order to provide practical as well as much needed support for our school. Please see your 2023-24 board below who have volunteered to provide leadership for this upcoming school year. Please, get to know our names and faces, and feel free to ask us if you have questions.

Hi! My name is Chrissy and this is our 3rd year at HTES. Our family moved to Cave Creek from Chicago in July of 2021 and I joined the PTO right away as room parent, Birthday Book Club volunteer and Room Parent Liaison. I met so many amazing parents this way. This year I am the Co-Vice President and also Room Parent liaison. I have 3 daughters, Milan (5th grade), Siena (2nd grade) and Brooklyn (1st grade). I love spending time with my family and friends, running, traveling and seeing live music. Looking forward to a great year!
I’m Angie Whatley, Treasurer. Married to Jeremy, mom to Nate (6th grade) and Jackson (3rd grade). As a family, we love a good beach trip and family game nights. I joined the PTO because I wanted to be more involved after covid. I started by going to the meetings and then volunteering for the events my kids wanted to go to.
Hey there- I’m Amanda! My husband Brandon and I have 2 redheads- Asher (4th grade) and Maggie (2nd grade). This is my second year on the PTO Board, yet, I’ve been involved as a room parent for the last 4 years. I’ve formed many close friendships through working with groups of room parents- I’d highly recommend it! I’ve also had the privilege of working with Stallion Strides, the Horsemanship program. I’ve not been around horses much, so I wrangled the kids, and was able to see how amazing the relationship between student and horse can be. Our family is proud to be Stallion Strong!

Stacey Leshner- Website Coordinator This is my fourth year on the PTO Board. I have 3 children at HTES. Katelyn (5th Grade), Connor (3rd Grade), and Ayden (Kindergarten). I've been involved as a room parent for the past 5 years, and a garden volunteer for one year as well as a horsemanship volunteer each year! Being involved with the PTO board and volunteering in the school has helped us become connected with other families within the school community!

Stallion Squad Coordinators
Hey! I’m Stefanie and I have two kids here at HTES- Brooklynn (6th grade) and Tyler (5th grade). This is my fourth year on PTO and I’ve also enjoyed volunteering with Mini Museum, Garden and as a Room Parent. I’ve loved being involved at HTES. I couldn’t have asked for a better elementary experience for my kids. Our family enjoys traveling, RVing and watching soccer games and theater performances!
Hi, I’m Bridget, a proud HTES mom of two 4th graders, Liam and Emma, who have been Stallions since they were 3 years old! I have been a Room mom and a Horsemanship volunteer but this is my first year on the PTO. I am excited to work alongside my Co-Horseshoe Crew coordinator and our HTES Room parents to celebrate our wonderful teachers and ensure that our kids have a truly special school year!
Birthday Book Club
My name is Kristin Flores & I have 2 kids at HTES. I have a 6 year old daughter -Cheyenne who is in first grade and a 8 year old Son- Carson who is in 3rd grade. I am in charge of Birthday Book Club this year. I love all the programs at HTES but my favorite would have to be Horsemanship, it is one of the main reasons we as a family came to Horseshoe Trails. I am looking forward to this exciting year.
My name is Joe Hernandez. I will be helping out with the class gardens this year and any other way I can. This is my first year with the PTO but I have helped with the gardens the previous two years.
