Up & Away - Beautify HTHMA Entrance

Dear HTHMA families,

19 families participated in our transformational BUY ONE BOOK effort as of 4:00PM ysterday!
We now have 66 more books for our students and a new family participation rate of 14.3%.

Talk about taking HTHMA to new heights! Thank you for answering the call.

Now it’s time to return to our regularly scheduled Up & Away campaign ...

We haven’t talked much about our school beautification project which is also being funded with this year’s Up & Away campaign.

Check out these BEFORE pics. Warning: You can’t unsee how drab it looks right now.

Now imagine what the AFTER pics will look like once we have greenery and exterior furnishings along that stark breezeway! Our vision is to add oversized planters with drought-friendly flora and benches to this expansive space by our school’s main entrance.

It will provide a huge boost in school pride to update and enhance the facade of our 15 year old facility.

Jen, Erica & Amiee

Up & Away - Book Count Update

As promised, we’re back to share a huge newsflash ...

Today 16 families have donated $405 to support our special “BUY ONE BOOK” effort.

That means 41 more books for our school libraries. Amazing!

Our family participation rate also grew from 9.1% to 13.5%.

We’ve still got a long way to go to get to 100%, but we’ve come a long way in just a few hours.

Special thanks from Up & Away HQ!
Jen, Erica & Amiee
