Friends of Haw Creek
Creek Elementary needs lots of Friends! For us to raise our annual
budget, we are relying on families in our school. We will NOT do a
product fundraiser this Fall. This is a big and risky change! The PTA
has discovered that lots of parents want to DIRECTLY give and support
our amazing teachers, and so we want to make that happen. Product sales
always take 50% of any amount sold, and now that will not happen. All
money donated will go directly to the school, and there will be nothing
If each of our 400 students could donate $50, we will meet our annual budget.
Of course, that is not possible for all students, so we encourage each
family to give as they are able – some will be able to give above and
beyond the $50. If you have extended family or perhaps a business,
please ask them – all donations are tax deductible! Last year we were
able to purchase several iPads for the classrooms and a new refrigerator
for the faculty lounge. This year we will focus on purchasing new
computers for the check in and some teachers, bringing new cultural
events, and funding Teacher requested grants.
