Homer O. Harvey 5K Walk / Run

The Council organizes a 5K walk each year to support the Homer O. Harvey Scholarship. The scholarship was created in honor of Dr. Harvey, a revered former District 28 Superintendent. The HOH 5K is now a spring race.

Check out the HOH 5K webpage for more information!

The scholarship is awarded annually to a number of outstanding high school graduates who are alumni of District 28.

Gift Card Plus

Gift Card Plus is a District-wide fundraiser administered by the PTO Council with help from each of the individual PTOs. The program offers District 28 families and friends the opportunity to purchase gift cards from various retailers, including movie theaters, hotels, gas stations, restaurants, and specialty stores. The program also features local businesses such as Sunset Foods, La De Da, and The Book Bin.
Gift Card Plus revenue allows the Council to host family and parent programs, publish the calendar and directory, support the Traveling Art Show, and make a significant donation annually to the Homer O. Harvey Scholarship Fund.
