DEAR McCALL FAMILY,
We just want to take a moment to thank the families and community members who have contributed to the McCall HSA! As of this morning, McCall community has donated an astounding $18,215 in individual contributions, $484.15 in matching funds, $400 pledged donations, $155 from United Way in response to the Back to School fall fundraising drive! The Uniform Committee has made $2,042 in sales to date. We have also received $944.93 in other income. We can’t thank you enough for your generosity!
On October 15, McCall HSA participated in Temple University’s attempt at shattering the Guinness World Record for Most Backpacks Stuffed in an Hour. Philadelphia principals, families, counselors, education professionals, and Temple students set a new record, stuffing over 6,026 backpacks in 37 minutes! Check us out on CBS Philly! These backpacks will be distributed to students in need. McCall HSA is proud to bring back 126 backpacks for our school community. Thank you to school guidance counselor Ms. Jennifer Beebe Poulos for identifying this wonderful opportunity!
On Thursday, October 18, the HSA will have a general membership meeting. Please join us at Starr Garden (600 Lombard Street) between 7-8 PM. During the first half of the meeting, we will report out about the funds raised to date, the school’s budget, and school priorities. During the second half of the meeting, you’ll have a chance to meet with other volunteers to discuss numerous upcoming volunteer opportunities: the Halloween Party; McCall Student Council’s Haunted Hotel (Yes! Adult volunteers are welcome!); Election Day Bake Sale, McCall Gala, Schoolyard Re-Painting Project, Art to Remember, Merry Monday Faculty & Staff Appreciation Breakfast, and many other fun activities.
Meanwhile, save the date for Saturday, November 3rd from 11 AM – 12 PM. Principal McKenna and McCall HSA will host a meeting for Mandarin-speaking families in Chinatown. This meeting will be held at Chinese Christian Church and Center. This date and time was selected based on input from Mandarin speaking families who cannot otherwise attend school meetings or activities. If you would like to help plan this meeting, please reach out to Nancy Lin at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you to McCall Bilingual Counseling Assistant Mr. Tang for his leadership and support! Thank you to Principal McKenna for making the time and caring!
If you haven’t made a donation yet, we hope you will consider making a donation today or signing up to volunteer. Together, we can provide the support our principal, faculty, and staff members need to provide high-quality education to all students in the months and years to come.
