Harper Charter School is again holding a fundraiser to help support our Student of the Month Program. The School awards a Student of the Month Award each month for grades K-6 and grades 7-12 in each subject area, ex. math, language arts, science, and social studies. The awards are based on effort, attitude, academic improvement and academics excellence to encourage students to do their best. The students are honored at monthly assemblies with a certificate, their picture and names are printed in the local paper. As an added incentive the superintendent has in the past taken them to lunch in town. This involves 11 students each month at approximately $7.00 per student and the school has done this monthly for each of the nine months school is in session. We would like to continue taking the students to lunch, it is a great encouragement, however the lack of funds may end this practice . To support this program you can place orders through Schwan's. Please click here to view the flyer for ordering instructions. The school recieves 5% of your product purchase until November of next year. Please help support your students!
