Happy New Year! We would like to welcome everyone back to school for the Winter Quarter. As always, there is much going on this quarter including the Mother and Son Dance, Jump Rope for Heart, Speech Contest, Spelling Bee, and Read Across America. Also, our basketball and soccer teams will begin their games against other CVESD schools! Please check our blog regularly for up to the minute information. We also encourage everyone to join Twitter for daily pictures and information about what is happening at Hedenkamp. Twitter is a great way to follow Hedenkamp Huskies!
Remember, school begins on Tuesday, January 15 and it is a minimum day. School begins promptly at 8:45 am for all students. Please make it a goal to be at school and on time daily! 1st-6th students are dismissed at 1:55 p.m. and our Kindergarten students are dismissed at 1:25 p.m on Tuesday. We are so excited to see you all at school in a few days!
