PPIE - SURVEY

PPIE wants your opinion!  Please complete a short 8-question survey and tell us what you think PPIE should fund at your school for next year.  This year, we're funding extra hours for librarians and site tech specialists at all elementary and middle schools, as well as extra class sections in high school to reduce class size.  Next year, with your support, we can do more!  So tell us what you want!  PPIEwill then confer with your principal's office and with District (PUSD) leadership to fund supplemental staff to best support your students.  AND REMEMBER, particularly for new donors, PLEASE DONATE TO OUR SUPER MATCH CAMPAIGN, which runs NOW through Super Bowl Sunday on February 4.  If more people donate, we can reach the levels of other school districts that have almost 80% participation rates and raise $millions for great school staff and programs! Visit www.ppie.org to learn more about the campaign and to donate.  And don't forget to take our short survey
Souper Bowl of Caring Drive (January 12  - February 2)

Donations are being collected in 1st period classrooms for Harvest Park's 8th annual Souper Bowl of Caring Drive. This service project will take place from January 12 - February 2, 2018.

Let's tackle hunger in our community together! Bring coins, cash or checks made payable to Open Heart Kitchen to your 1st period class by Friday, February 2.

For your information, 2018 will be Harvest Park's 8th year of participation in the national effort to tackle hunger in local communities, known as Souper Bowl of Caring. This organization partners with the NFL during January, leading up to the Super Bowl to raise awareness and funds to tackle hunger in our community. Harvest Park has collected donations in football-themed containers that our 6th grade Middle School Success Wheel and Leadership students have decorated. Weekly public service announcements featuring staff members and students in football jerseys will appear on HPTV each Friday. Mrs. Swyers and the Leadership students will hold a pass and kick contest at lunch periods during the week before the Super Bowl. Mrs. Casto and our ASB are also on our Souper Bowl of Caring team. Last year, we raised over $2,200 to donate to Open Heart Kitchen. This was a Harvest Park record!

We appreciate that our Harvest Park community came together to make a difference for needy families by donating to the canned food drive and to hurricane and firestorm relief efforts. However, donations to food pantries and other charities tend to drop off dramatically after the holidays. If each student and staff member donated $1.00, we could raise about $1,500.00.
