Sponsor the Summer Soirée!

2019 Summer Soirée

Hosted by Helaine & Jim Hazlett
June 15th   5:30-8:00 pm
12 Clifton Avenue, Marblehead, MA

Your continued support of the Friends of the Marblehead Public Schools (FMPS) does not go unnoticed and is instrumental to our mission of enhancing the educational experience in our public schools. We hope you will consider being a Sponsor of our annual Summer Soirée, as we get closer to the 30th anniversary year of FMPS. Please join us  Saturday, June 15th from 5:30-8:00 pm as we celebrate our accomplishments at the home of the founding member of the FMPS, Helaine Hazlett.

Helaine founded Friends of the Marblehead Public Schools while serving on the school committee in 1991, and realizing that the school budget was stretched and enrichment programs were the first to get cut. Operating budgets cover salaries and basic supplies, but little else. FMPS directs 100% of your donations to programs that directly impact our students and teachers. Over the years, through your support, we have awarded more than 1.7 million dollars in grants. With school budgets strained again this year, it is crucial to continue to funding that enriches and enhances the education of all Marblehead Public School students. Your generosity impacts the quality of our public education – which impacts our greater community and the future of our children.
