AmazonSmile

AmazonSmile is a simple way to support the HFA while you do your normal Amazon shopping and it doesn't cost you anything.  Amazon will donate 0.5% of sales to the Highland Family Association when you use the Smile.Amazon.com link to shop.  Accessing Amazon through this link takes you to the same deals that Amazon always offers but it just lets them know that you want a portion of what you spend to come back to the HFA.  Prices are the same, Prime shipping is the same, returns are the same, you're just raising funds to support our amazing school as well. Share this with our friends and family!

Enter "Highland Family Association Libertyville" in the search for your charity box and select enter to confirm your support.  Then just bookmark & return to Smile.Amazon.com link to shop and your purchases will start to help HFA.

Staff Appreciation
This is a general volunteer signup for anyone interested in volunteering/donating items for staff appreciation events during the school year.  In past years, events included staff dinners during parent teacher conferences, a staff luncheon during teacher appreciation week as well as other staff appreciation activities during the year.  The staff appreciation committee chairs will be in touch with those who sign up for this group with further information on how you can volunteer your time or donate items for these events.

Graduation
This is a general signup for anyone interested in party planning and implementation of 8th grade graduation. This signup is not limited to parents of 8th graders. In fact, we want 7th grade parents to help so they have some experience to help organize it next year!

When the planning starts in late winter/spring, the volunteer coordinator will be in touch with those who sign up for this group with further information on how you can help with party planning, making and setting up decorations, food donation, as well as several opportunities to help during the evening of the graduation party.
