Thank You for Creating Reflections Artwork!

We were overwhelmed by the beautiful artwork that Hedenkamp Huskies created for the 2019 PTA Reflections program! Thank you for your efforts and for taking time to share your creative works! Original artwork was submitted to our district PTA by students representing all grade levels at Hedenkamp in the following categories: Photography, Visual Arts, and Literature. Congratulations to all Huskies who participated! Good luck to those whose submissions were selected to proceed for review at the regional level.

Tuesday Tidbits (October 29, 2019)

To All Husky Howl Volunteers:

A school is so much more than books and desks,
And learning two plus two,
It’s people who share their skills and try their best in everything they do.
Please accept our heartfelt appreciation,
Our school is a better place because of your talent and dedication!

Thank you to our amazing community of teachers, staff and parents for your continued volunteer support and for your recent help with the Husky Howl!
