While the State of California is the primary funding source for Fammatre, these funds are used to cover only the basic expenses. To supplement, the HSC will spend $80,000 (approximately $160 per student) this year by funding the following and more:
Field trips, Art Vista Program, Librarian & Books, Assemblies, Author's Week, Playground and Equipment Upgrades, Audio/Visual Upgrades, Technology Upgrades, Differentiated Learning Programs, Classroom supplies & incentives, Wednesday After-School Subsidies.
We wouldn't be able to do this without the help of our parent volunteers and teachers who make our fundraisers sich a success. If you would like to volunteer please reach out to the event coordinator or the HSC President.
Thank you for your support!
Year-Round FundraisersEach month we arrange with a local restaurant to host a day/evening lunch/dinner fundraiser for Fammatre. The restaurant gives back a percentage of what was spent that day or evening. It's a fun time spent with family and friends. We encourage all to join us. Please note, for some dinners a flyer is required, thank you.Family Dinner Nights are announced in the school's newsletter and on the Home & School Club's Facebook page.

Clipping box tops is an easy way to make money for our school. Each one is worth 10 cents! Just look for the pink Box Tops label on hundreds of products, clip and bring to the school. All Box Tops must be clipped down to the dotted line and pasted to a Box Top sheet OR placed in a zip lock bag in groups of 50. Do not collect expired Box Tops or Box Tops that do not show the date listed on the bottom as they do not be count.
