PTO Fall Festival Info
The PTO’s annual Fall Festival is this Friday, November 8th from 6-8 PM. It will be a blast, as always! We can’t wait!
If you’re new to HSA-FW this year, here is what you need to know: Pre-sale wristbands are available before and after school this week* for $7 each. Wristbands will be sold the night of the event and will be $10 each. The wristbands include all the games and activities, but do not include food. Food is separate but all prices are reasonable and there should be something for everyone! Bonus: all of those proceeds will go back to HSA-FW (the Spirit Squad, the PTO, etc.)
Hopefully you have received requests for help from your child’s teacher(s). We really depend on all parents to keep this great event going so if you haven’t received anything, shoot them an email and ask them if there is a way you can help. It will be worth it!
*No wristbands will be sold Friday afternoon so we can set up for the event.

Box Tops for Education
Parents! It’s time to accept that Box Tops has gone digital! We know, we know, change is HARD! And so many apps and log-ins and passwords – we get it. But! This is for such a great cause and is actually a little addicting once you get going. (Or maybe it’s just us.)
Go to Box Tops 4 Education and see how EASY it is to help HSA simply by scanning your receipt every time you shop. With everything going digital, our school is falling behind on our goal. See if your kids want to be in charge of it and tell the extended family too! This is something we have always counted on as part of the way the PTO earns money for our kids & teachers – PLEASE HELP!
Thank you to everyone who has made an effort to keep us going! We appreciate you!
