Fundraising Programs  
Thank you to everyone who made the Read-a-Thon a success! We hope your child enjoyed the extra reading challenge this month! More specifically:

  • Thank you for your donations to HPS and for supporting your child while he/she asked for sponsorship pledges!

  • Thank you to all who volunteered at the Book Fair, the Read-a-Thon folder stuffing, and the Tab&Tally morning! This fundraiser couldn’t happen without your generous donation of time. 

  • Thank you to those who made Book Fair purchases and dined at Bronte Bistro! 

Once the logs are tallied, we’ll be sure to share the individual winners, team winners, and class winners. Once the donations are counted, we’ll share the total that goes directly back to HPS programming!
