As the HSA ramps up its fundraising campaign, we want to make sure you know how those dollars directly impact your children’s education and enrichment. The priorities for these funds are set through a coordinated effort of the HSA and the school each year, looking at both the school’s needs and parent input, including the annual survey. For a more detailed breakdown, see the chart and explanation below. Your dollars are critical! Only 1/4 of parents have donated to the HSA. Please give today!
