News and Dates from the HG PTO

The PTO has been busy this fall and thanks to all of our Howards Grove families for the continued support!


Family Nights continue to be a very successful fundraiser for us. This fall, we were able to bring in $1,173.69 from three family nights at Culver’s, Papa John’s, and Log Cabin.  


Dine, Dash, and Save a Little Cash was a hit! What a great family/community event. Thanks to all who stopped by to do some shopping at the garage sale, grabbed a bit to eat at one of the many awesome food trucks, or even did a few sprints around our Fun Run course! We hope to bring this event back again next year so stay tuned!


By supporting the PTO through all of our fundraising activities, your money is going right back into the three schools within our district. This Fall we had a number of Teacher Requests and because of your support we have been able to provide funding for the following:


  • Breakfast and Books
  • Scholarships
  • Busing for Field Trips
  • iPads
  • 6 OSMO Kits
  • Various Presentations
  • MakerSpace Supplies
  • Smart Board


Stay Tuned!
