Harrisburg School District, in partnership with students and teachers from Marshall Math Science Academy, The
WheelHouse and Aggreco International recently held a public showing of its Aquaponics Laboratory. This innovative system, which is capable of
supporting 60-80 plants and 10-12 fish in a 200 gallon tank was installed by Harrisburg middle school students, along with
environmental and sustainable agricultural experts from around the world. The project will expand to the district’s
SciTech Campus for the 2015-16 School Year. In addition to local partners, community leaders and media personalities, students received a special visit from King Togbe Afede, XIV of Ghana.
In response to one of the many questions the Foundation has received regarding the critical financial situation facing the Harrisburg School District (HSD) next year, an Annual Fund has been created for contributions. Many concerned citizens have asked how they can contribute money to offset the severe deficit in the state's public school budget. The answer is through gifts to the Harrisburg Public Schools Foundation (HPSF). The Foundation operates as a means for contributions to be received, recognized and channeled to support the HSD. All gifts, at all levels are appreciated and will be handled respectfully as the contributor intended and with full public transparency.Click the title for more information.
