Dear Parents, Guardians, and fans of Strath Haven High School,
The primary role of the Home and School Association is to fund curricular requests using money raised by selling school directories (and the ad space within) each Fall. However, we would like to be able to fund a greater percentage of the items requested each year, but we really don’t want to add another fundraiser to everyone’s lives. Instead, we are instituting a direct donation drive, and ask parents and guardians to consider giving $25, $50, $100 … or whatever you wish (we can use whatever amount you are comfortable giving). We are a 501c3 nonprofit organization so your donations are fully tax deductible, and 100% of the money goes to funding items on the wish list.
So if you can, please write a check to “SHHS Home and School Association” and send to our treasurer: SHHS HSA, Michael Kohute, 906 Surrey Rd, Media, PA 19063. Please write “direct donation” on subject line so we can separate the checks from other sources.
If you’re curious where your donation might go, here are just some of the hundreds of items we have purchased over the decades:
- portable AEDs
- headsets for language instruction
- human skeleton
- copies of The Disappearing Spoon
- electronic balances
- sewing tables
- lunches for needy students on college tours
- pH meters
- protein building set
- track systems for teaching physics
- year-end student awards
If you have questions, please contact Suzy Hoyle, our current Home and School President.
