Havre Public Schools Education Foundation Board of Directors was pleased to present a $500 check to Chad Edgar, Superintendent of Beaver Creek Park.  The money was a portion of the funds raised last fall from the Blue Pony Bingo fundraiser.  After consulting with Chad several times about the best use of these funds, the Foundation voted to donate it to the Park with the intention of it being used for a project to prevent future fires. 

Blue Pony Bingo was first sponsored by HPSEF in 2016 to help raise money for the HHS Marching Band traveling to Washington D.C.  The 2017 Bingo was held to raise money for scholarship and small grant requests, with Jody Toner winning $1000. Due to the devastation of the fires at that time, the Board felt it was appropriate to donate a portion of their profit to the Park. 

No plans have been made for a third Blue Pony Bingo fundraiser, but the Board is open to requests.  We appreciate the overwhelming support of our community in furthering the causes of HPSEF.

The HPSEF Board of Directors would like to thank the following contributors for their support in 2018.

The Foundation receives donations in a variety of ways: participation in our on-going annual fundraisers, such as the Spirit Clubs and Blue Pony License Plate fundraisers. Memorials are sent to us as a tribute to a lost loved one or friend. Generous donors continue to fund scholarships they have established that are offered through the HPSER Scholarship Program.

We would not exist and be able to serve our purpose without the support of these wonderful donors.

Thank you very much!!

2017 Great Northern Fair

HPSEF had a booth at the 2017 Great Northern Fair, there were photos and facts about the Foundation. There was also a drawing to give away a Blue Pony Corn Hole Game. Jack Maloughney, president of the Board of Directors presented Earlene Dewinter, winner of the drawing, with her new game the week following the fair. We hope Earlene and her family enjoy their new game. Thank you to the volunteers that provided the game for the Foundation. Built by Bruce Finneman, painted by Kari Maloughney and the blue pony design was done by Mickey Haney, Julie Monson made the bean bags that are crucial to playing the game. The directors of the Foundation greatly appreciate the support of the community.

During half time of the Blue Ponies season opener basketball game, HPSEF Board of Directors member and Treasure, Julie Monson presented HHS Athletic Director, Dennis Murphy, with a check for $620.00 for the Golf Team. The funds are to cover the cost of Divisional and State tournament fees. The money presented is made possible by the Bob Rangvold Memorial Funds entrusted to the Foundation specifically for the Golf Team. The purpose of the Foundation is to raise money and then award to students and educators in the form of Small Grants, Scholarships and in this case keep funds and disburse as per the request of the donor.




license plate final crop 2

The HPSEF introduced the Blue Pony license plate about a year ago. We have been pleased with the response, in the first year there have been about 90 plates purchased. We hope the trend continues and we see blue pony license plates everywhere. The license plate sponsorship allows the HPSEF the ability to increase it’s financial support of educational needs in the district through scholarships and small grants. A $20. purchase and annual renewal fee at the time of registration will help the Foundation achieve these goals. The license plate is available throughout the state of Montana. Alumni and fans of the Blue Ponies not living in Havre may also express their support and pride. Contributing to the foundation through the license plate fundraiser is an investment in our young people. The HPSEF is committed to enhancing education in Havre and Hill County. It is in the best interest of the community that members join together to look for ways to guarantee provisions for the educational needs of our students.


We had a blast this year with our milk truck entry. We handed out chocolate milk cartons to kids and even got to chat with Miss Montana, a former Blue Pony, Lauren Scofield.

The Havre Public Schools Education Foundation was sent a Grant Request from Janet Ingram, Havre Middle School Communication Arts Department, this past spring. The Foundation was pleased to be able to award the Grant Request. A description of the purpose of the request is best said by Janet herself.

"Mrs. Ingram, when do we get to go get our books?" This question echoed in my ears Wednesday during school. I was probably as excited or more so to answer! Through a grant from the Havre Education Foundation, on June 2, 2016, Havre Middle School was able to provide 3 books for every student enrolled in the building. A summer reading initiative trialed this year was off to a good start! 

The idea came up this winter when I received an email from a reading company based in Georgia. The email contained data showing how summer reading programs improve student performance during the school year, hoping to stem some of the 'brain drain' that occurs every year over the summer. After talking to administration and faculty, we decided to go for it and contacted the Foundation for grant approval.

Upon receiving news that our grant was approved, I sent in our order. The books arrived  on a packing crate. It was the biggest pile of books I'd ever seen. Looking at those stacks of boxes was sweet! Even sweeter was imagining the students who got to read them over the summer.

The program allows for student choice, which is a major factor in its success. Students were able to choose 2 from about 50 fiction books and 1 from over 70 nonfiction titles. Along with the books each student received a journal that he or she can fill out to keep track of plots and characters if desired. Next school year we will collect those journals to keep note of who participated and to be able to reward them with a pizza party.

Thanks to HPSEF for making such a positive impact on our community and, hopefully, someday beyond."unquote 

The Foundation Directors are anxious to hear from Janet this fall, she will let us know how she feels the program went and how the students enjoyed their books. Grants such as this are just one purpose of the Foundation, a non-profit organization formed to encourage and support excellence in education by raising, accumulating and disbursing funds to enhance and support educational opportunities for the students of Havre public schools.
