Dear Hedenkamp PTA Members, thank you for funding these activities and materials to enhance and extend the curriculum for our students. So far this year, with the generous donations that have been raised through our PTA fundraisers, these are just a few of the events have been made possible:
- Books & Bagels literacy event – September 9th
- Anti-Bully Assembly (paid TNT Dunk Squad entertainment) – September 20th
- 30 desktop computers were purchased and are already in use in the classrooms
- Our school library has received a grant for new books and materials
- Several classrooms have already received their mini-grants to help purchase materials for the classroom (more classroom mini-grants will be issued throughout the year for school-related supplies, as teachers turn in their requests for mini-grants)
The next General PTA Meeting is scheduled for February 12, 2014. Please join us as we go over the financial report and share all of the exciting activities that are hosted by PTA. Classroom field trips, school’s technology grant, CST snacks purchased for students during exam week and upcoming literacy events are a few additional activities that Hedenkamp PTA will be sponsoring this year. Please contact the PTA Board if you have any questions, thank you.

Hedenkamp PTA sponsors an anti-bullying assembly with entertainment from TNT Dunk Squad, tomorrow morning, September 20th. Parents are welcomed to attend the assembly. It will take place on the blacktop by the basketball courts. Click on the logo below to view a clip of their electrifying slam dunk entertainment.
Help stomp out bullying and cyber-bullying! Bullying is when a person hurts or picks on another person repeatedly. The difference between a Teller and a Tattletale is that a tattletale is telling to get someone in trouble but a teller is telling to protect someone. Telling takes courage. Here are some good rules to follow:
- I will not bully others.
- I will try to help when I see others being bullied.
- I will include others.
- I will tell an adult who can help.
Join our students at this important and fun event tomorrow!
Dine at your local McDonald’s tonight, located in the Sunbow Shopping Center. Come greet your teachers and friends!

The PTA Membership Drive is in full swing! We have received several new memberships for the 2013-2014 school year, but we have some work to do to beat last year! Being a PTA member is a great way to support the school and the many events that we host throughout the year. Membership forms went home the first week of school, but you can also pick one up in the main office, or you can download it from Peachtree on the Hedenkamp Website. Completed forms may be turned into your child’s classroom, or in the PTA drop box outside the PTA Office.
As a special incentive, the Upper and Lower Classrooms that receive the most PTA memberships will be treated to a fun healthy fruits popsicle party at the end of the month as well as a $100 Scholastic Gift Card. The membership drive ends on August 9th, so remember to get those forms in.
Thank you for your support!
