Make a Big Impact - Support "Up & Away, HTHMA" PTA Fundraiser starting March 1, 2019

We all want our kids to have the resources and meaningful experiences they need to thrive during their four years at HTHMA. Our school is able to do a lot with their budget, but it certainly can't cover everything. The Parent Association (PA) is a dedicated team of parent volunteers that works hard all year long to figure out how best to support our students and teachers. We greatly appreciate when you, our school family, answer our calls for help. The reality is we can do so much more for HTHMA, but not until we raise the money.

This February, the PA hosted HTHMA's first ever "Welcome Back Breakfast" for our Juniors when they returned from their month-long work Internships. It took a lot of planning and support from our parents to provide a delicious breakfast to 100 people. Thank you! This event was a huge success and will become an annual tradition for all Grade 11 students at HTHMA. This is just the latest example of what we can accomplish with your help.

Our next PA project is to raise the money to create a photography studio in time for Intersession on March 18-22. Once the space is ready (we can use a newly vacant room off the main commons) and camera equipment bought, it will be used for Intersession, then Grade 12 Multimedia, X-Block, and clubs. The photography studio will be a part of every student's HTHMA learning experience. This project is all queued up, and ready to go - as soon as we have the funds.

There are so many more opportunities for our school - new Chromebook computers ($10,000 per classroom), teacher grants for special projects, testing snacks for students, teacher appreciation, school improvements, and graduation.

We're asking you, our HTHMA families, to support our "Up & Away" campaign so we can make a big impact and take our school to new heights to benefit all our students. Our goal is to raise $20,000 by Friday, March 15th.

That's an average donation of $50 per student. If we pull together, each family giving what you can, we'll get there. No donation is ever too small or too big. As much as every dollar is needed, the goal we're most committed to reach is having the support of EVERY family at our school. Thank you for making a big impact on all of our students and HTHMA.

Up & Away, HTHMA!
