New Fundraising Idea: School Store

Help Launch a Pilot Program!

Brainstorming meeting on September 29 at 8:30 AM.

The HSA would love to start up a school store and plans on getting a few dates scheduled in the fall to launch a pilot program. Many details need to be discussed, and we could use some new volunteers to get this program off the ground. Interested? Meet in the PAS Atrium on Friday, September 29 after drop off for a planning meeting.

Fall Family Giving

9/20/2023 11:18 am

Please Give Today!

The HSA's mission is to help maintain, empower, and further enhance Penn Alexander School in order to provide the best possible learning environment for our children. One of the ways we do that is by raising money to help fill in the gaps, and we ask for donations several times a year. Every dollar you donate goes right back to our children, our teachers, our classrooms, and/or our school.

We are launching our 2023-24 fundraising with a goal of $75,000 for the general fund. Once we reach that goal, we will stop asking!*
(*We will also ask for teacher and staff donations in December and again in June; we equitably pass 100% of those funds collected through to ALL teachers and staff to show our appreciation for their hard work.)

We strive for 100% family participation, with gifts in the past ranging from $1 to $1,000+. We know that not everyone can afford to give much, but every single dollar helps and is appreciated! For more information about where your money goes and additional ways to support the HSA, such as volunteering and attending events, please click HERE. Thank you so much!
