PTA meeting, TUESDAY 2/13 at 7pm (I think I called this a Wednesday before!!):  Please note that the presentation Breaking Points, by the Jaycees and CPD, was scheduled after this meeting was scheduled, and unfortunately conflicts. We tried to figure out a way to reschedule our meeting, but we were unable to. Meeting agenda, the Treasurer’s Report, and the minutes from the last meeting are attached.

Feb. 12-14 Box Top Contest: Let’s show some LOVE for HAS through our Valentine Week BOX TOPS contest.  Send in your collection in a labeled bag with your child’s name and teacher for a chance for their class to win a gift card toward much needed classroom supplies. That top earning class will also earn a small prize per student.  Middle School Students can place them in the box outside the main office for a chance to win a gift card.  This contest will only run from Monday, Feb. 12-Feb. 14!  Happy Collecting and thanks for helping to earn $$$ for our school!
