Fundraising makes up the difference between public school funding and offering additional opportunities to our students through cultural, field, arts and science events.  It also supports our teachers by funding supplies and programs of their choice which help enrich student learning.  We encourage all parents to help build the Horn hive by donating their gift of time or financial support. There are lots of ways to get involved, support the hive, and help us build.  Below are links to our featured fundraisers through the year.
