Donations needed: The HF PTA is planning a movie night and a STEAM Fest (see below) and needs raffle items. Do you have connections with a business that would consider donating an item or gift card? Do you have a restaurant/movie/activity gift card that you won’t use? Perhaps your kiddos received toys, games, or books that were too young/old for them or that they weren’t interested in? Please donate them to the HF PTA and help raise funds for our neighborhood school! Email Sarah Hayden for more information.
