From Harford Property Services:
Harford Property Services (HPS) is pleased to announce its pledge to help Harford County students achieve their full potential. During the school board budget process for the 2016-2017 school year, a decision was made to gap budget shortfalls by imposing a fee on extra-curricular activities of $100 per activity for each student.
“Our students and their families should not be burdened with fees in order to gain the benefit of participating in extra-curricular activities. For many families with two or more school age children, each participating in multiple programs through the school year, the financial weight is too heavy,” said J.D. Russell, President of HPS.
HPS has pledged to support the Havre de Grace High School Drama Club by paying each students “Pay to Play” fee this upcoming school year. “As a local business we want to see our youth get the most out of their High School experience. I challenge my fellow business owners to help students cover the cost of program fees for extra-curricular school activities in their communities,” said Russell.
