The Horn PTO needs your financial support! 

Some schools ask students to sell door-to-door, collect money and deliver products to support their school.  We won’t ask you to do that.  Instead, you can make a donation and 100% of your money goes straight to Horn School and is tax deductible!

Your dollars support the following supplies, programs and events at Horn!
-field trips            -visiting authors          -school wide family events          -music instruments
-science fair        -media center             -chess club                                  -teacher appreciation
-Orff club             -international night     -classroom supplies                    -student council
-safety patrol       -ice cream social        -6th grade party

The goal of this fund drive is $5000.  Please consider making a donation and sharing this link with family and friends.  We hope the success of this fundraiser, along with other fundraising events throughout the year, will help PTO continue to fund the programs and events we currently provide to Horn students, families and school!

Can you help us reach our goal?
