WHY SUPPORT THE HOME TOUR
"Homes for the Holidays" tour is the only fundraiser for the ABPA in support of Armstrong and Bradfield kindergarten and first grade classrooms. As you may know, more than 70% of the school district's property tax dollars go to schools outside the Highland Park district. One of the biggest reasons why HPISD continues to be an exemplary district making the Park Cities such an attractive place to live is because of fundraising efforts like those of the ABPA. With statewide budget cuts and record enrollment with limited resources, our fundraising efforts are of paramount importance.
Over the past 18 years, the ABPA has raised more than $900,000 with the Homes for the Holiday tour. Approximately 97% of all monies raised from the tour go to the two schools. In 2016, the schools received $130,000 with each school using half of the funds to purchase instructional materials, books, technology, math manipulatives & teacher workshops.
We sincerely thank you for your support - in both your time and money.
