MIS/HPMS Fundraising

Dear Parents,
We have a challenge. Our school district prides itself on excellence at every level. In order to achieve this standard of excellence, we continually have to rely on our community to make up for dollars that are pulled out of our district through “Robin Hood.”
Even with generous parent contributions, our current funding resources are not meeting the needs of MIS/HPMS. This has prompted the PTA and school to create a general underwriting campaign, Raider Challenge. The intent of the general underwriting campaign is to provide an opportunity for parents to give directly to the school in the most efficient and cost-effective way. The dollars raised will have an immediate impact in several key areas throughout the school for the 2016-2017 school year: technology, instructional materials, active learning spaces, and library and auditorium enhancements.
Our fundraising goal for the 2016-2017 school year is $600 per student. This funding need request can be viewed in further detail on our Fundraising tab at, or get a copy of the flyer here.
Raider Challenge will address the specific and immediate needs at MIS/HPMS, while Mad for Plaid will focus on overall district needs such as ensuring that our teacher salaries are competitive with the best districts in Texas.
We believe that our families will support Raider Challenge and Mad for Plaid as we work together to create excellence in education. Please consider giving to Raider Challenge during back to school sign up August 4-12.
We are happy to answer any questions or discuss specific giving opportunities.
