Half Moon Bay High School Foundation End of Year Update
Dear HMBHS Foundation Members and Supporters:

We are heading into the end of the year and wanted to thank everyone for their ongoing support.  We also wanted to reach out to our members to provide a quick update on what has been accomplished thus far.

We have had a very successful fundraising campaign that has brought us to 66% of our goal of $90,000.  We still need to close the gap of $30,600.  If you haven’t yet donated, and would like to check this off of your list before the end of year, please go to hmbhsfoundation.org to make your tax deductible donation for 2018.  Additionally, if you work for a company that provides corporate matching, please complete the steps to ensure we get those funds.  We don’t want to leave any funds on the table that could be going to our students.

The Foundation provides a lot of needed resources for our students, faculty and administration and we can’t do without everyone’s support!

Additionally, we have held a Campus Beautification day where we did a lot of needed work around the campus.  Weeding, planting, trimming, pruning and clean up of trash were done.  These days are very productive and rewarding and we’d love to have more people come out to lend us a hand.  Our next date is Saturday, March 2, 2019.  We will be power washing the school!  If you have a power washer and an hour to lend an hand, we will put you to work.  We are going to get the campus cleaned up, including ancient gum off of the sidewalks.  Please save the date.

We had another very successful Teachers’ Appreciation Luncheon on Monday, Dec. 3rd. As always, the teachers and staff loved it! Many thanks to the parents who donated food and time to this event.

Our teachers have come to the board to ask for funding for needed items. Your board has worked with the administration to prioritize and allocate funds.  So far, we have awarded $33,000 in grants to our academic departments.  There are still outstanding requests that we’d like to fill and based on our fundraising, will consider granting as soon as we are able to.

Thank you for your continued support of the Half Moon Bay High School Foundation.  There is so much value in the power of our community supporting our high school.

Wishing you a happy holiday season,

Stefanie Pappalardo and Janet Cochrane
President and Vice President
