 PTA Support


Thank you, parents, for your continuous support of HCES. Because of your generosity, our portion of Boosterthon brought in $19,201. PTA is able to fully fund:

-  digital support: Accelerated Math, Project Lead the Way - science curriculum - and a Reading Interventionist for the 19-20 year

-  communication needs: rehaul the PA system

-  general budget: improve landscaping

Some parents have expressed the desire to take ownership of this fundraiser. A plan of action, to include a chair and committee, is required by May 10th. HCES PTA must move forward with the Boosterthon contract for the 19-20 year by May 15th. 

We look forward to hearing from you! Please email the action plan to  hcespta01@gmail.com
