Donuts for Dads
September 29, 2015
The dads of High Hills Elementary School made their way to our cafeteria to be honored for their constant support of our students. The dads were treated to a variety of donuts, danishes, cookies, brownies, juices and coffee. Mr. John F. Kennedy (School Liaison Officer) greeted the audience and thanked them for their contributions to High Hills Elementary. He reminded the dads of the vital role they play in the success of their child. Our dads then contributed to the school by shopping at our Annual Fall PTA Book Fair. The dads raised over $1000.00 during the event. Our dads are the BEST and we appreciate them each and every day!!!!
