Kindness Week is Here!
This week we will be celebrating kindness. Our Student Council has planned an exciting week of kindness at Hedenkamp! Kindness Week will begin on February 6th and run through Friday, February 10th. The week will include School Spirit Days, classroom discussions on ways to promote kindness throughout Hedenkamp, an opportunity to create a “Kindness Rock” to add to our garden, an appreciation station hosted by student council at recess, and ending the week with a Kindness Sprinkling at our main parking lot during arrival on Friday.
You can find all our spirit days for the week on the flyer, if you don’t have a twin for Monday-you can be a twin with Mrs. Williamson and Mrs. Rojo, we will be wearing a red husky shirt and navy pants/blue jeans. We can’t wait to share in a week of kindness with all our Huskies!
Spring Pictures This Thursday!
Our spring pictures are here! All Huskies will have the opportunity to take spring pictures on Thursday, February 9, 2023. There is no need to purchase any photo packages ahead of time, but you can purchase the photos after receiving the proofs. We hope to see everyone dress their best for spring pictures.
