FHPS Foundation Gala
Did you know that the taxes you pay designated for “local schools” do not actually make it to Thornapple in their entirety? Those taxes are collected by Lansing and distributed equally on a per pupil bases across the state.
FHPS district ranks #1 in the GR area and top 10 in Michigan due to the financial assistance provided by the FHPS Foundation and its donors.
The FHPS Foundation’s biggest event is the Gala. The Gala will take place November 7 @ 6pm at Frederik Meijer Gardens. It is always a fun event!
The FHPS Foundation’s “Support Our School Initiative” will be promoted at the Gala. It’s goal is to raise enough funds (approx. $90,000) to fully fund every need identified by all FHPS principals. You can support the initiative even if you don’t attend the Gala by making a donation online at www.fhpsf.org. Any donation ($5, $10, $50, $100+) makes a difference!
There are a few tables still available for the Gala. Contact Caroline Tilton at email@example.com if you are interested in attending and would like to be placed in a table with other Thornapple parents.
