PTSA Fundraiser – Wreaths Across America
We are continuing an exciting fundraiser from last year that honors our fallen soldiers while at the same time raises money for Howard High School. Please help carry on Howard’s newer tradition of purchasing wreaths for the United States Naval Academy Cemetery in Annapolis through the Wreaths Across America program. Last year, due to your generous support, we were able to honor our heroes by paying for wreaths to adorn some of the 2000 graves at the cemetery for the holiday season while raising over $500 for our school. Let's do it again in 2016!
Purchase a wreath for $15 as a fundraiser. HHS is partnering with Wreaths Across America to provide 2,000 wreaths at the United States Naval Academy Cemetery in Annapolis, MD in order to honor every fallen solder.

Thank you to our 2014 and 2015 donors!!
Thank you for the 214 Wreaths that have been donated through Howard High School.
The larger group that Howard HS PTSA was a part of, has reached its goal of 2,000 wreaths! Every soldier was able to have a wreath at his grave at the Naval Academy. Last year, we were about 400 wreaths short, so it is very exciting this year to reach our full goal!! Any extra wreaths will go on to Arlington National Cemetery. Arlington's wreath laying ceremony is in mid-December.
