Check presentation for the 2018-19 Mad for Plaid gift to HPISD for teacher and staff salary support.

"We grew up here, raised our children here, and now our granddaughters are growing up here. We choose to support Mad for Plaid because we value the best that HPISD provides to our community- the best faculty, staff, and future for our children and grandchildren."  - Donna and Andy Small, '61

mad for plaid

Every student, every teacher, every school

Mad for Plaid is the Education Foundation’s annual campaign, which raises public support from alumni, grandparents, parents, parents of former students, corporations, and other community stakeholders. Every dollar received enables us to grant HPISD funds in support of teacher and staff salaries. Without your support, HPISD would face serious budget cuts even further impacting its ability to recruit and retain the best educators for our students.

19-20 Mad for Plaid Leadership Society

The HP Education Foundation Leadership Society is the cornerstone of the Mad for Plaid campaign, providing donors with the opportunity to significantly invest in the excellence of HPISD and set an example of leadership that inspires our community of Scots to give.
