Grateful for our Havens Community

We continue to be so grateful for our amazing Havens community. This week, after learning of Mr. K’s bicycle accident, Courtney Azad and Tara Desautels worked with HPC to communicate with his former and current class, respectively, and together they quickly and successfully raised funds to help support him and his family while he continues to recover. Thank you so much to those class parents for so generously giving, and to the 5th grade teachers and staff for filling in the gaps and supporting those students. If anyone else would like to show support, we encourage you to make a card and drop it in the front office to be delivered.

There is so much to be proud of at Havens! We invite students and staff to represent that by participating in our coming-soon School Pride Fridays; wear your Havens gear or anything purple every Friday starting September 10 (the first Friday after Labor Day).

The Merchandise Committee will be outside Ellen Driscoll at the noon dismissal time tomorrow ready with their card readers to help you pick up the newest Havens gear!

As a reminder, supporting our merchandise, lunch, and ASE programs not only provide our families with swag and services, but are major fundraisers for the school.

More Ways to Support Havens:

Matching Gifts! Does your company have a matching gifts program? You can double your donation, or more, with a matching gift from participating corporations and foundations. Matching is an important, easy way to increase your support for Havens. If you volunteer with us, your employer may also provide us with a grant as a way to recognize your ongoing support. Thank you for checking to see if your company offers these programs!

Amazon Smile! One of the easiest ways to continue to support Havens passively is by shopping at Amazon Smile. Please go to and choose “Frank C Havens School Parents Club.” You will need to set it up on each device (computer, phone, etc.) separately. Then, just make sure you are visiting when shopping and a percentage of your purchase(s) will come back to support all things Havens.

Please reach out to us with any questions, thoughts, and ideas. Thank you, Havens!

April and Val
