Most notably, FHPS has funded the Summer String Program since 2008, which allows students from our schools to attend camp for four weeks and be introduced to the violin and cello for free. Students also receive instruction in yoga, chorus and reading, and have field trips and performances at Western MA venues. FHPS also funded the following activities for HPS students:
- Enchanted Circle Theater Storm Drain Art Project
- Mass. Dance Festival performances at EN White & McMahon Schools
- Sponsor for the 2015 HHS Annual Musical, The Wizard of Oz
- 3 literacy Grants of $1,000 each to K-3 HPS teachers to provide direct extra-curricular programs to students
