Thank You and Welcome New Members!

Thank you to all who joined PTA during the 2019 Membership Drive, your support is appreciated and we look forward to a wonderful year together! Please be sure to save the date for the next PTA General Meeting on Wednesday, January 15, 2020. Congratulations to the winners of the 2019 Membership Drive contest, Ms. Haynes’ and Ms. Medina’s classrooms!

With a community of nearly one thousand students and staff, we hope to reach our goal of at least 300 PTA members this school year. We have yet to meet this goal, so we would love for you to please join PTA! Memberships can be purchased at the Hedenkamp Huskies PTA Webstore.
