  • Projects that foster creativity, development of critical thinking skills, and/or promote the Dual Immersion experience; or
  • Projects that enrich our current school program such as Art, Music, Dance, Computer Science, Science and Physical Education.




What will we not consider?


  • Projects made in support of operations or programs outside of Patrick Henry Elementary;
  • Project that influence legislation or the outcome of any election, or to political campaigns;
  • Projects for which PHF would be responsible for implementation; and
  • Projects falling under the mission and scope of other school organizations.
