American Fundraiser

Today, we are starting our Fall Fundraising Program.  This year, our students will be selling from “American Made,” a collection of cookie dough, nuts, snacks, candles, wrapping paper, and chocolates, all proudly made in the USA!  The proceeds from this sale will benefit students by allowing us to make purchases that improve our school’s overall quality of learning.

Students brought home a sales packet today that includes a prize envelope, parent letter, order form, and product catalog.  It is very important that parents carefully read the parent letter for directions and more information about prizes.  The parent letter is also being sent to parents’ email addresses.

We encourage students to sell as much as they can through online purchases.  That is the quickest way they can earn prizes!  There’s also the option for customers to pay with cash or check upon delivery of their items.  Delivery is expected to take 3-4 weeks.

Students who sell at least 12 items will attend our MEGA Party in October.  There will be inflatables, a foam cannon, music, games, and snow cones!  If a family prefers not to sell, a donation can be made.  Students who don’t sell but donate at least $30 will also attend the MEGA Party in October.

What does this mean for the HCPS Family?

  • This program encompasses balanced and nutritious meals, ensuring that your child has access to wholesome food throughout their school day. Our focus is not only on their academic growth but also on their physical and emotional well-being. By removing the financial burden associated with daily meals, we hope to create an environment where every student can thrive without any worries about their next meal.
  • It is important to note that while this program covers breakfast and lunch offerings, extra items are available for purchase.
  • If a student wishes to purchase extra items such as ice cream, snacks or extra meals, these may be purchased with cash or through available funds on students’ accounts. If your child already has funds on their account, they can use them for these items. You can easily set up and/or manage your online account at K12PaymentCenter.com.

We have prepared a new Code of Conduct this year that clearly communicates our expectations for students.  If you haven’t done so already, parents, please sign your child’s copy of the Code of Conduct so that your child’s teachers know you have reviewed it.  6th graders’ Code of Conduct can be signed in their Agenda Books.  7th and 8th graders were supposed to bring home a copy to get signed.  Thank you for your support!

Band

It’s not too late for 6th graders to sign up for Band if they are interested.  They can sign up anytime before August 25th.  Have your child see Ms. Lowe in the Band Room if they would like to join or if they have any questions.
