Van Meter Programs Funded by H&SC

The Home & School Club provides the funding for many of the programs that enrich your child’s development. With budget short falls becoming the norm in school districts across the country it has now fallen to parent teacher organizations like Home & School Club to help raise funds to keep on providing these vital programs and equipment. The list below represents the programs that Home & School Club directly supports. If you have any questions about any of these programs please contact us and you are welcome to attend the Home & School club meetings throughout the year.
