The Hillsboro High School swim team is unique among area high school swim teams. We are a relatively small team with only twelve swimmers on our roster, and three of our swimmers have special needs. These three students are not just honorary members, team mascots, or the cheering squad, however; they are competing members of the swim team. The Hillsboro swim team is a place of inclusion and acceptance for all athletes, no matter their ability. By supporting the Hillsboro High School swim team, you are giving all of our swimmers the chance to practice and compete, and you are also enabling our three swimmers with special needs the opportunity to be a part of something they might not have ever dreamed possible. The diversity of our team is beneficial to all its members, and it’s what makes our team so special. We hope that you will consider supporting the Hillsboro swim team this season. Every little bit helps!
Megan Kelly, Head Coach
Why This Fundraiser Is Necessary
The Hillsboro High School swim team is considered a club sport and, therefore, is not funded by the school. Team members and their families are responsible for raising all the funds necessary to run the program each year. An important goal we have is to keep our team dues affordable for our swimmers to help ensure that participation is possible for all of Hillsboro’s students.
How Donations Will be Used
The swim season starts in October and runs through January. Our 90-minute practices take place at Pearl Cohn High School four times per week. Donations will assist with pool rental fees for practices & meets; team registration & meet entry fees; team equipment; and our coach’s salary.

The vocal music program has doubled in size over the last three years and continues to grow. I would love to be able to provide our four (soon to be five, hopefully) vocal ensembles with more resources and more opportunities to travel. Thank you for your consideration, and remember:
“The fact that children can make beautiful music is far less significant than the fact that music can make beautiful children.”
INVEST is Hillsboro’s annual fund for academic excellence and opportunity. Please give generously.
Every year, there is a gap between the funding Hillsboro receives from MNPS and the amount required to offer a world-class education to every student. For the 2017-18 school year, the PTSO has made a commitment to raise more than $40,000 to help close this gap. Our teachers are counting on the PTSO’s continued financial support!
Where Does the Money Go?
Every INVEST dollar benefits students academically. INVEST donations greatly enhance Hillsboro students’ college and career prospects by supporting programs that provide academic enrichment, remediation, and support. These include:
Academic clubs & competitions
ACT test prep
Online supplemental math instruction
Whole-school IB (MYP, CP, and DP)
How Much Should I Give?
In the last few years, we have received donations ranging from less than $10 to more than $10,000. All donations are welcome and appreciated!
