Fundraising is how we develop our playgrounds, buy new equipment, and specialty items for the teachers. Parents are advised on what we are raising money for each year.
Gift Wrap Fundraiser - September
Packets will come home the first day of school or at the Meet and Greet. There are gift items as well as gift wrap. We will receive 50% of the profits back. We’d love your participation!
CLAIRE'S GOURMET - October
Claire's Gourment offers yummy treats that arrive frozen just in time for the holidays! Lasagna, hot dogs, pretzels, lemon pound cake, cheesecakes, cinnamon rolls and cookie dough are just some of the wonderful-ness that is part of this fundraiser. We receive about 40% for our school. We will offer samples at Back to School Night- yum, yum! Frozen foods are delivered early in November.
Kiss the Pig- End October/Hoedown
Do you want to see a teacher kiss a pig?? Fun time during October to collect/donate coins towards making that happen for your child’s teacher. Class that donates the most causes the teacher to Kiss a REAL pig! We will do this at the end of the Hoedown!
Let’s have supper together at the Gainesville Chipotle! A percentage of the evenings take will be given to the school- you’ll need to mention HBCPK when you order- see you there!!
Holiday bazaar- december
Dec 6th is the day for your shopping to begin at HBCPK. The entire fellowship hall (Big Room) is turned into a shopping venue with homebased businesses and gift ideas. Come support many of our parents who have these homebased companies and get some shopping out of the way once you drop your child at school. Each class will also do a themed basket for auction at the bazaar..this is a well loved and anticipated event! There is a raffle table as well- just $1!
Tana’s Kitchen- January
A first for us, but WELL KNOWN in the Warrenton area- Tana’s kitchen for homemade CHICKEN POT PIES… comfort food for the cold days of January! All pies are made fresh- even the dough, in Warrenton, peanut/treenut free, and arrive frozen. They are so very tasty! $20 a pie!

Picnic tables for both playgrounds.
New fencing and gates for both playgrounds
Concrete pay and basketball hoop
Concrete figure 8 bike trail, and bike storage garage.
PE equipment and storage shed
New Fire Alarm System

Security cameras for the facility and classrooms.
For 2019-20 we are using fundraising money for new 6 bay swing set, ground cushioning under the swings, swing mats and curbing. We also purchased new trikes. Your support of the above fundraisers will directly pay for these items this year.
Preschool in Jamaica
Throughout the school year, we raise funds to help support a preschool in Jamaica. These impoverished children live in the mountains 1.5 hrs outside Montego Bay and cannot afford preschool. Parents can directly impact a preschooler by offering to pay a year of school tuition ($90. Over the years we have sponsored between 15-33 children! In 2016, we sent a teacher to college in Montego Bay - our parents helped fund her classes and books! She is continuing in her studies, by taking night classes. We send financial support and oft times she has done so well that the college has given her scholarships! We have also hosted spirit nights at the local Chick-fil-A restaurant and have been able to purchase security bars for the school's windows and doors. We have taken them teaching supplies, books and puzzles in December 2012-2018. One family's donation has purchased fencing around the school. We raised funds in 2014 to have the facility painted (we supplied the paint and local preschool parents did the work!). In December of 2013, we provided a CD player, music, puppets, 3 storage cabinets, a bookshelf and Christmas gifts for every child. We did a Christmas party in December 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 - each year supplying the school children with new clothing, shoes, a toy, coloring book, and toiletries. We help teachers with computers, teaching supplies and manipulatives. For Christmas of 2018 we received some very kind donations from parents and we were able to buy a bag of groceries for each family for the Christmas holiday! Such a blessing!
2019 Goals— give each child 4-5 storybooks to have at home (there are no books in any of the homes we have visited). Improve and add to the little teacher library to help grow teacher resources and student education. Continue to support student tuition, and Ms Gardner’s college and transportation expenses. Take a Christmas gift to each child and teacher. Provide a Christmas party with cupcakes, and ice cream!
In March of 2015, Mrs. Frasz spent a week at the school assisting with teaching and discovered many needs within the local families and community. In April, we brought a preschool teacher to Virginia and she spent 11 days with our staff, learning and being 'loved on' by staff and school families alike! For the 2015 Christmas party, we invited Christian singer/songwriter, Mary Rice Hopkins and puppeteer, Darcie Maze for the annual party. We put on a concert for the entire preschool and local elementary school. We gave each family a bag with goodies for each person in the family and Santa passed out sweet treats.
We ask that you support our spirit nights - not only to have a night out without doing dishes, but to support these little ones and their teachers who have so little in the way of educational and financial support.
