  • Highland School of Technology Unfundraiser 2014

    We are happy to announce the return of the popular PTSO “Unfundraiser.” What is an Unfundraiser? Simply put, the Unfundraiser is a fundraiser where students don’t have to sell anything, parents don’t have to buy anything and 100% of your donation goes directly to classroom and school needs. In the past, if you spent $50 on wrapping paper or candy,only 22-50% went to the school. Why not have ALL money donated go to support your child’s education instead? Funds raised will allow the Highland faculty and PTSO team to purchase items the school desperately needs to enrich your child’s experience. Each family is asked to support the fundraiser and every donation is VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!!! Just complete the form at the bottom of this letter and send it in with your donation by November 14—that’s it! Each donation is tax deductible. We will be happy to provide you with a letter for your tax records.
