The Howitt Primary PTA aims to raise funds to enhance our children’s education, as well as encouraging an inclusive and enjoyable social experience for everyone associated with our school.
Howitt PTA are working hard to raise funds to support the children this year. Events held so far have included bags to school collection as well as the Monster Bash disco, Christmas disco and the Christmas chocolate stall at Heanor Light Switch On, which made an amazing £759.00 profit for the school this year. Thank you for all your chocolate donations.
Howitt PTA were also successful in a lottery grant that bought 30 i-pads for the school.
Regular newsletters are issued to keep everyone informed of future events and where the money raised is being spent. Keep a look out for next meeting dates as new members and new ideas are always welcome. Pop into the school office if you are interested in helping out.
Christmas Fair and chocolate tombola
A big thank you to all your support for our Christmas fair and chocolate tombola stall. They were both successful events, the christmas fair made £1,693 and the chocolate tombola £412.
The PTA will be continuing to develop the current outdoor area using the money raised from these events.
