From Our PTA Board
Our goal this year is to work together to assist every student and family at Howard Drive Elementary in having a safe, healthy and successful school year despite the times we are living in. In order to do this, we need your help! If you are able to, please consider joining the PTA this year. Memberships are on sale now. At the last General PTA Meeting, we voted to raise funds for air purifiers for each classroom, as well as the office and cafeteria. These units utilize HEPA filters that can remove COVID particles as well as other harmful contaminants from the air. We have set up a GoFundMe account to raise $10,000 for this purchase. So far we've raised $4648.00 via GoFundMe and an additional $1998.00 via our Charleston Wrap Fundraiser for a total of $6646.00 of our $10,000.00 goal. We are also working on securing sponsorships to go towards the air purifiers. To help us get to our goal faster, you can still donate online on our GoFundMe page: gf.me/u/y45bqj If your company is interested in sponsoring, you can contact Jennifer Zika at email@example.com or 786.269.8189.
