A Thankful Week!

Even though we have a short week this week, PTO still has lots going on!

Last week’s Pucker Up For a Pig raised $530 to benefit Floyd County’s Blessings in a Backpack.  Band Teacher Mr. Thomas won the most votes and kissed a pig this morning.  Check out the video here! https://goo.gl/EF7kTT Thanks to all our families and students for their generosity and to Mr. Thomas for being such a great sport!

We wanted to remind everyone that today, November 21, is HHMS PTO spirit day at Beef O’Brady’s in Floyds Knobs. Let your server know you’re there for HHMS PTO, and we’ll get a portion of the proceeds!

Texas Roadhouse Gift Card orders will be accepted through next Tuesday, November 29.

We hope everyone has a happy and safe Thankgiving!

Need Walkathon Volunteers for Thursday!

We’ve gotten a great response on volunteers for Wednesday’s 5th/6th grade Walkathon–thank you to everyone who has signed up!  Unfortunately, PTO is in pretty dire need of volunteers to help with Thursday’s 7th/8th grade Walkathon.  With the current number of volunteers, it will be very difficult for us to host this event for students that day.  If you can help on Thurs, Sept 29, we (and our students!) would greatly appreciate it!  Please visit our SignUp Genius at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f094facab28a13-walkathon to sign up for a time and station.  Thank you as always!

Final Walk-a-Thon Total–Unbelievable!

Wow, what a month!  After three weeks of donation envelopes coming in, contests, and prizes being earned, we have successfully completed the fall fund drive portion of our Walk-a-Thon!  We ambitiously set our goal at $14,000, but you smashed that out of the park with $29,860!! Students have earned all rewards set for each level (popsicles at the Walk-a-thon, pajama day (date TBD), games at Walk-a-Thon, and finally, Mr. Krammes will walk the plank into our pool in a suit and tie!
Our individual top donor with $500 was Brianna Yates!  2nd place was Drew McMonigle with $300.  Amazing!  The top classes who have won a Culver’s ice cream party are:
    5th Grade – Paul/Ferriell $2,345
    6th Grade – Collier/Sonner -$1,940
    7th Grade – Ms. Elmore – $1,077
    8th Grade – Mr. Kessens – $430*
(*This is a change from the class that was in the lead at the time we gave away the football tickets due to timing requirement for game date.)
Teachers from these classes will be awarded their Amazon Gift Cards this week. Thank you to our teachers for helping to communicate and promote this event! Individual prizes (sunglasses, drawstring bags, t-shirts, and stadium blankets) will be awarded the week of the Walk-a-Thon at lunch.
Thank you everyone who participated and helped make this such a success!!
