Happy New Year to FHUSD families and friends.

2019 Tax Credit:
There is still time to make a Tax Credit donation to our schools that will reduce your 2019 state tax obligation up to $400 for those who file a joint return.  You actually have until April 15, 2020 to donate and have the credit apply to your 2019 Arizona Tax Return. Fees paid for extracurricular activities, standardized testing for college readiness (SAT, ACT) or CTE certification assessments are all eligible for the credit. New for 2019, donations can be made in support of playground equipment or shade structures for playground equipment.

As a reminder, a receipt is needed from the school in order to claim the tax credit. Each school has provided receipts for every known donor who contributed through December 2019. Receipts for donations from January 2020 through April will be provided on an ongoing basis. If you have made contributions from earlier in 2019 and have not received a receipt yet, please contact the school so records can be updated and receipts provided.

Governing Board Election of Officers:
The Governing Board had their election of officers at the recent meeting on January 8th.  Jill Reed was re-elected as Board President and Nadya Jenkins was elected as Vice President.  These roles will be in effect through January 2021. Congratulations to both Jill and Nadya.

Robert Allen, Ed.D.
