  • Wednesday, May 4th – FRUIT BASKET: bring a snack or piece of fruit for your teacher and/or staff member.
  • Thursday, May 5th – SUPPLIES: the end (of the school year) is almost near and so are the supplies! Consider donating an item such as pencils, tissues or markers for the classroom.
  • Friday, May 6th – TREAT DAY: bring a treat for your teacher and/or staff member.

PTA also has special treats planned daily for Hedenkamp teachers and staff with an appreciation luncheon to end the week.  Join us in making this a special week for our fabulous teachers and staff.
