Current Volunteer Opportunities 
Restaurant Night Helper

Interested in helping out with an easy HPS fundraiser? Each month, the PTO tries to find one generous restaurant nearby that is willing to give a percentage of the proceeds back to HPS. This is a great way to fundraise, as well as gather informally with fellow HPS families! This job is not very extensive (the Fundraising Chair already has a short list of potential restaurants), but it still entails communicating with the chosen restaurants, making flyers to advertise, etc. Email Beth McPeek at beth1abell@aol.com if you can help!
Fundraising Programs 
MadTree Charity Of The Month
Schedule a sitter and join fellow HPS parents at an informal meet-up on Tuesday, September 12th between 6-8 pm @ the Oakley MadTree . Stop by and have a beer, toss a buck, and support HPS! PTO will be hosting a split the pot raffle to support the school. Mark your calendars!
