Dinner Dance logo This year's Dinner Dance theme was Vanity Affair - A Glittering Gala! It was a super fun, elegant event, and all proceeds benefitted our Hillsborough public schools!

THANK YOU to EVERYONE who supported this event for our pubic schools: our fabulous Dinner Dance committee, event sponsors and donors, attendees, and HSF staff!

Some of you were unable to contribute to our Fund-A-Need earlier, so we have provided information and links below - THANK YOU!


Investing in Innovation:  iLabs 2.0...This year’s Fund-A-Need takes our highly successful Innovation Lab program to the next level by starting a brand-new “Maker Space” for Crocker Middle School, extending iLab opportunities to our K-2 students, and updating our elementary schools’ iLab equipment. Why? A comprehensive K-8 iLab program allows HCSD to nurture a “Design Thinking” mindset in our children, arming our kids with critical thinking, engineering, and problem-solving skills to better address the challenges of the new millennium. Our iLabs give our students opportunities to create, collaborate, and engage in innovative Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math - STEAM-based projects to become innovators and lifelong learners.
