Tuesday Tidbits With Author Visit! (September 15, 2020)

Author Visit, Today!

Please join us as we welcome renown children’s author Shalini Singh Anand as she reads her books, Lee Bee Turn Off That TV! and Step It Up With My Pup! 

Hedenkamp PTA values literacy! Please come visit the lunch distribution (in the bus loop) on Wednesday, September 16 from 12-2 where copies of these titles will be available on a first come, first served basis, one book per child please, as PTA was fortunate to obtain a limited number of books. We are so grateful to our wonderful school site for these food and book distributions! If you’re not able to make it this week, there will be other opportunities like this in the future! For more info, please take a look at the PTA calendar.
Can’t get enough of Shalini? Neither can we! Feel free to visit her website http://www.booksbyshalini.com/

Husky Wear Gear, Available Now!

Check out our new Husky Wear Shop! You are invited to shop now through September 30th. All Husky Wear sales will be online this quarter and will coincide with the 2020 Huskies Pawsome Membership Drive! (Not yet a member? Join here!) Once the shopping window closes, all items will be shipped to the school for distribution. Please stay tuned for the distribution details! The shirts, tees, hoodies, and jackets are available in red and navy color options. Please note, the graphic will complement the item’s color with a contrasting chromatic design. This round of sales is not a fundraiser, since PTA would like to pass on the extra savings to our Husky families! We are hoping to offer another Husky Wear fundraising opportunity in the spring. Thank you so much for supporting the Husky Wear Shop!

You can share your child’s pledge page using the “Share Wizard” feature. If Hedenkamp students make 100 shares over the weekend, Superfly Ty will dress as the Husky mascot on Monday!  APEX Remix is fun P90X fitness-style dance party! APEX Remix will feature a two-week leadership and fitness program, where Huskies will receive daily character lessons and awards, as they learn what it takes to be a true leader!  Over the next week, students will be collecting pledges for each “Fitness Move” they complete next Thursday. Please let everyone know they can sponsor your child for this very special event by sharing your child’s APEX page! We expect participants will have time to complete between 26-36 moves, all from the comfort of their own homes!
