The PTO will use the funds & points obtained through the programs listed below to directly benefit our children & our school. The funds allow the PTO to provide a variety of things (classroom needs, reading programs, technology, supplies, etc.), while the points help to purchase much needed supplies (for art, PE, classrooms, etc.).
Thank you for your support!!
Due to Covid, we are currently reviewing our fundraising options. Our plan is to partner with Apex this year to host our fundraiser. The Fun Run is HBE’s main fundraiser of the school year and the funds are distributed based on input from the principal, teachers and the PTO board. This fundraiser typically occurs in October; however, due to Covid, we are looking at Spring options.
General Mills “Box Tops for Education” can be found everywhere, on a wide variety of items, including Huggies products, Cottonelle products, many Betty Crocker and Pillsbury products, numerous brands of cereal, Yoplait yogurt, Juicy Juice, and many more. (For a full list of participating products, click here.) Simply clip the Box Tops cleanly along the dotted lines, being careful not to cut off the expiration date. Box tops also sometimes print out with your grocery store receipts.
10 TOPS = $1.00 for our school!!
Please save them and ask your family, friends and neighbors to collect for us as well! We collect these tops twice a year, typically October and February.
