  • Amazon Smile

    The Point Higgins PTO (Parent-Teacher Organization) has officially set up an Amazon Smile Account! 

    This means that when you shop at smile.amazon.com (or simply click on the Amazon Smile logo above) our PTO will receive 0.5% of the purchase price.  This may not seem like much but it adds up since most of us order from Amazon!   

    Thank you PTO!
