Harper Elementary School: Our Neighborhood School

Harper students

Our neighborhood school is Harper Elementary School, just 4 blocks from Fuzzy Goat. We feel a particular care for these students who 91% participate in the free lunch program and go home to food insecure situations as well as experience a lack of basic educational supplies. We look for opportunities to partner with the school whenever we can; we have hosted the students in the shop for fiber arts activities, welcome the students into a Main Street business and talk with the students about small business. 

Principal Sharonda Wilson says a current need for her 99% black students is for funds for rewards to encourage academic achievement. Harper gives the students who reach a specific academic goal a gift certificate to some of our local general merchandise stores. We thank you in advance for letting these students know that their lives matter. 

Shop with us as we do good together.
