We are excited to begin our Husky Hustle on Monday. July 24 at 8:15 am! We encourage all students to participate. It is a great way to get some exercise with your friends before school. We will pass out a Popsicle stick this week to all runners, volunteers will mark the laps you run on the Popsicle stick this week. We will begin using our scanning system to track laps next week. If you are on campus between 8:15 and 8:35, you should join us for the Husky Hustle! We can’t wait to see you there!
PARKING, DROP OFF AND PICK UP
All of us at Hedenkamp want to thank our families and community members for their patience and understanding as we try to accommodate the many vehicles that arrive each morning and afternoon.
The last day that we will use the playground as overflow parking will be Friday, July 28. As we settle in to the new school year, many of our teachers will be using the playground for the required physical education period. As more and more students are on the black top, it is impossible to accommodate the many cars. We will continue to open the playground for parking on Fridays as well as any special events. Again, thank you for your understanding.
We realize this may be difficult, however we strongly recommend that families begin to use the drop off and pick up areas we have established around the school. They are: Tabor Court, Kindergarten Loop and the Main Parking Lot. Although it may take a few minutes to move through the line, most if not all of the students are picked up by 3:25 p.m.
We also encourage families to walk, scooter, bike or carpool to school. As a school of over 1050 students, it helps if we can reduce the number of cars driving to campus daily.
Finally, we would especially encourage the parents of our 3rd-6th grade students to use the drop off and pick up areas and allow the parents of our younger students to park.
PTA MOVIE NIGHT
Please be sure to join us for our first Movie Night of the year. The fun begins at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, July 28. Bring your lawn chairs, pillows and blankets to help enjoy the evening. You may bring your own snacks or purchase popcorn, nachos, hot dogs, pizza and drinks from our PTA concession stands. We hope to see you all at our first Husky community event of the year!
