Each 10 labels a student brings in earns a raffle entry - don’t drop them off without your child’s name and classroom clearly noted, or we can’t enter them in the raffle.

BUY LOCAL COUPON BOOKS This annual project of Local First Vermont features over 200 coupons from locally owned, independent businesses across Vermont. You will also find a farmer's market directory and features on community gardens, Vermont breweries and festivals. Through a partnership between Local First Vermont and Red Barn Fundraising, the Buy Local Book is now available at HCS. A book is $20, which can easily be made back after using only a few coupons!  Books are currently on sale at the front desk at HCS. Also look for them at Open House on Sept. 25th and at Harvest Festival at Town Hall on Saturday, Sept. 28th.

RED BARN/GENEVIEVE'S This is our biggest fundraiser of the year with a goal of $8,000.
