Welcome to the Hightower Husky Foundation site!!
We welcome your contributions and help in volunteering for different positions and support during
the school year to be part of your child's education at HTMS.
The HTMS Foundation would like to welcome everyone back to school for another exciting year!
The Foundation was founded to provide funding for needed programs and facilities that enhance
the educational experience of all our students and are not paid for by the school, the Cobb County
School District or the PTSA.
HTMS HUSKY FOUNDATION ANNUAL CAMPAIGN IS OFF TO A GREAT START!
Thank you to the many parents, faculty and staff who have already donated to the HTMS Husky
Foundation Annual Campaign! We enjoyed meeting many of you at Sneak-a-Peek. As HTMS strives
to become a STEM-certified school, HTMS Husky Foundation’s goal is to provide supplies and
technology enhancements such as iPads, media center upgrades, and science probes, to help meet
key criterion for certification. We also hire the police officer who directs traffic during the busy
morning time before the county crossing guard arrives. Your support is needed to make all of this
How you can help:
DONATE - Your support directly impacts your student’s education. We appreciate donations of any amount. Those who donate $100 or more will receive a limited edition, student-designed magnet.
