Support Your Colt Family
    Edward Harris Jr. Middle School offers several programs to help challenge ALL students to realize their greatest potential while preparing them for their college and career goals.
    We hope you will help PTO help your student by making a tax-deductible donation to support the many programs we offer at EHMS. Our goal is to raise $25,000.00.  We have over 1,100 students and 800 families attending EHMS. We ask that each family donate $31.25 to reach our goal.
    This will allow PTO to provide funding for the following programs:
          Technology            Tutoring                     AVID              ASES               Intramural Sports
          Campus Safety        Student Activities   Band         Staff Support        Spirit Items
