BOGO Book Fair

One of our favorite events of the year, the “Buy One Get One” Free Annual Book Fair is upon us! 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!

Watch out for information about a new program called E-wallet that eliminates the need for cash. 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 page. See attached.

Husky Wear

In lieu of online Winter Husky Wear Sale, we will be hosting several “Pop Up” Husky Wear Sales on campus in the next few months. If you are unable to attend a pop up due to work, please email Karen at pta@huskiespta.com and we can arrange a different time.

We just placed a new order. Look for the announcement for the next sale on the blog in the next few weeks!

Change of Clothes

Kids slip in the mud or spill their lunch and need a change of clothes. Hedenkamp is in need of donations of new underwear and socks, and gently used outfits for when these little accidents happen.

We are requesting gently used outfits (one assembled washed outfit put in a gallon bag with the size marked on the outside). Please sign up for a donated size here.

Additionally, underwear and socks can be purchased from the following Amazon wishlist or at a store of your choice.

Please deliver to the office, attn.: PTA.

Thanks!!
