Apex Fun Run – Thursday August 24

Apex is our biggest fundraiser of the year and will culminate with the Fun Run this Thursday, August 24. We are looking for volunteers to help with filling up water jugs, setting up, handing out water, fruits, popsicles, and marking off the laps off kids’ t-shirts.

Fun Run times:

  • TK-1st grade: 9:00 am
  • 2nd-3rd grade: 9:55 am
  • 4th-5th grade: 10:45 am
  • 6th grade: 11:35 am

We still have plenty of volunteer spots to fill, especially for the 10:45 am and later timeframes. Please signup: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0d48afa82aa4fac43-apex1#/

PTA Membership

If you are new to Hedenkamp, or returning to Hedenkamp but haven’t renewed your PTA membership, please consider renewing for the 2023-2024 academic year (PTA memberships are active for the academic year). It’s only ~$10!

Also, contrary to belief, joining the PTA does NOT obligate you to any other further commitment. You can join by paying your $10 membership, receive various benefits that come with PTA membership locally, statewide, and nationally that you can take advantage of or not, and then end the school year. Your $10 membership contributed to the various events, fundraising, school upgrades, and teacher support.

Any support whether through donations or volunteerism is greatly appreciated.

PTA Executive Board

Our Executive Board has 2 positions that are pending to be elected, and various other positions that are still vacant:

  • Vice President – Primary aide to the President.
  • Fundraising Chair – Plan fundraising activities.
  • Parliamentarian – Assist in managing meetings and PTA bylaws procedures.
  • Auditor – Reviews PTA financial records for accuracy.
  • Volunteer Coordinator – Coordinate volunteer assignments.

You aren’t expected to know any of the position right off the bat, and we’re all learning as we go and working together to help each other as needed. Again, contrary to belief, the majority of us hold full-time jobs and fit in what we can do to help make Hedenkamp great. Contact us if you are available!

PTA General Association Meeting – Thursday August 24

Our first General Association meeting of this 2023-2024 academic year will be this Thursday, August 24, at 6:00 pm, hosted virtually on Zoom. Please e-mail PTA@huskiespta.com for the Zoom link.

All Hedenkamp community members are invited to attend! You do not have to be a PTA member to attend, but PTA members have voting privilege. If you are new to Hedenkamp or are returning and haven’t renewed your PTA membership for 2023-2024, please join! It’s only ~$10.

Volunteer Reminder

As a reminder, for any school volunteers don’t forget to review Hedenkamp’s Volunteer Guidelines for the 2023-2024 academic year and submit the appropriate paperwork to the school front office. Thank you all for your commitment and service to our Hedenkamp community.

On-campus Fundraising Vendors

Due to District policy, Loko Bean Coffee in the mornings and Kona Ice and Robeks Smoothies in the afternoons are not currently part of our fundraising. We are reviewing details to see if we can bring them back as part of fundraising.

(We don’t currently have plans for other fundraising efforts such as last years’ dine outs held at Board & Brew, Rubios, Panda Express, Handels, and others. If you or something you know is interested in helping facilitate these efforts, please consider filling our Fundraising vacancy).

Husky Howl

The Husky Howl is tentatively on the calendar for Friday, October 27, though it is also possibly it will not be held as our Executive Board is still incomplete and we will need a Committee to help plan, organize, and facilitate the event. If you are interested, please e-mail us and consider attending our General Association meeting this Thursday, August 24.
