Spirit Nights and Fundraising


We have many fun events planned for the 2017 - 2018 school year! The funds we raise go towards purchasing much-needed items for our teachers upon request, and help to fund our major 2017-2018 projects:  a playground cart filled with items for our children to play with during recess, and the renovation of two unused courtyards at HCES into an outdoor lunch space and an outdoor STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) classroom

Our fundraising dollars also are used toward sponsoring teacher appreciation events, like the welcome-back breakfast, snacks and dinners for days when teachers stay late for parent-teacher conferences, and appreciation weeks for our teachers, custodians, school nurse, bus drivers, administrative assistants, and resource officer. 

Besides on-going fundraisers like membership drives and BoxTop collections, we have Spirit Nights during the school year at various restaurants in Ashland as well as at Skateland.  The proceeds of these spirit nights are split equally between Henry Clay and Gandy PTA.
