Dear Hoover Families,
Time flies! We are already in the last month of 2018 and middle of the school year 2018/2019.
Every school year brings excitement and multiple fun activities for children, beginning with the Ice Cream social and they continue through to the end of the year with the Carnival!
This fun experience to all our kids will not be possible without the support of all our Hoover Families and their generous contributions and support. Thank you very much for that.
We want to encourage all those who have not yet had a chance to contribute towards the Direct Appeal. Though the suggested donation is $150/child, any amount is gratefully accepted as our school relies on contributions from families like yours to pay for programs and events that enrich the learning experience for all our children.
This is how your donated funds go directly towards school support:
Ø Classroom supplies
Ø Library books,
Ø PE/Music/Art supplies,
Ø PAJMZ Science & Engineering visits for every class,
Ø School experience activities - Project Cornerstone, Invention Convention, Green Team, all the Social events like - Ice cream Social, Lego and Math Games night, Field Day, International Festival, and the year end Carnival.
In total, our budget this year for direct support towards enrichment for all children’s learning experience is $45K and hence, any amount of contribution will be deeply appreciated and helps to ensure that we don't have to ask for shopping lists with students at the beginning of the year or charge tickets for all our social events.
CORPORATE MATCHING GIFTS: If your company matches employee charitable giving, please do not hesitate to use it. This will add up and can double your donation! And please note that all the donations are fully tax-deductible and from this year onwards we are planning to provide a donation receipt with our non-profit tax ID in the coming weeks.
Also to help add up to our contribution (and as most of us are in the beginning of holiday shopping mode), if you shop with smile.amazon.com (pls. choose '1040 Herbert Hoover Elementary PTA'), it will be great.
You can also forward this link smile.amazon.com link and charity info. to your friends and families. Every small bit helps and will add up to support all the school activities.
