APEX Fun Run on Thursday!

Thank you to all who’ve donated in support of the APEX Fun Run at Hedenkamp! The APEX Fun Run is this Thursday, August 15! Here is the schedule by grade level:

K – 2nd Grade —  9:00-10:00am

5th – 6th Grade — 10:00-11:00am

We could really use your help as a volunteer during the APEX fun run! Please plan to arrive on Thursday morning, at least 15 minutes prior to scheduled run times. Help is needed during every run, so if you are able to stay for more than one group, please do! Please remember to check in at the front office, and then head over to the APEX tent on the grass field to get a marker and instructions. Thank you for volunteering!

PTA Meeting

There will be a PTA meeting next week on March 6th at 5:30 PM in the Hedenkamp Library. We will be voting on the PTA board as well as discuss upcoming events. We look forward to seeing you there.

BOGO Book Fair

One of our favorite events of the year, the “Buy One Get One” Free Annual Book Fair is upon us from March 11th to the 15th in the Hedenkamp MPR. There are many ways for your student to get involved including a coloring contest and donating to All For Books. We want to keep kids interested, engaged, and READING!

This year, teacher’s will have an opportunity to create classroom wish lists which is a great way to support your child’s classroom. Our school gets back 55% of each purchase, and we use the proceeds to help provide supplies for the kids.

As you know, we cannot do these events without the help and support of parents and grandparents like you! Please take a moment to review our volunteer sign up. We make it as fun, and painless as possible! There are also opportunities for high school students to earn community service hours.

We are excited to announce this new way to pay for your child’s favorite books this year! E-wallet is a digital way to pay that eliminates the need for cash. Set a monetary limit for your child hooked up to your debit\credit card (extended family can send money too!) And when the fair ends, any remaining money will be released back to you! Take advantage of this cool new tool by visiting the book fair home pageSee attached.

Yearbooks

2018 – 2019 Yearbooks are available for purchase on our webstore until March 15th.

Yearbooks cost $35 and a personalized version is available for $40. They will be delivered at the end of the year. A limited amount of yearbooks will be available for purchase at the end of the year for $50.

They are only available through the website and there are no refunds.

If you have pictures of any school events like field trips, dances, Husky Howl, etc. for the 2018-2019 school year that you think might be good for the yearbook, please email it to historian@huskiespta.com. Please include your child’s or children’s name, grade, and their teacher’s name. You just might see it in the yearbook!
