BOOK FAIR

The Hickory Point Book Fair Returns In-Person Again! 

This year’s book fair will be held the week of November 8th and will be for students only. Students will be given the opportunity to preview all the books at the fair and then shop a few days later. Scholastic has a very easy tool called EWALLET. Just like loading a gift card with money, EWALLET is an easy tool so the kids can shop the book fair. Books may also be ordered online during the book fair dates. Watch for an email with EWALLET instructions and more information soon!

HOT LUNCH

Hickory Point will be offering hot lunch one day per week, on Thursdays, starting on November 4th. Please look out for the PTA Council email with more details. 

Orders are open now: https://ptgms.com/lunchsolutions/hickorypoint/

The Hot Lunch program is fluid and can change month to month.  We are all hoping that as the year goes on and vaccines get approved for children ages 5-11, the distance recommendations during lunch will change so we can have children sit closer than 6 feet apart.  This will make serving hot lunch easier and give the PTA the opportunity to expand to more days.

 

COAT DRIVE

It's our annual District 27 Coat Drive!  October 22nd to November 2nd we will be collecting new and gently used children's coats size 0-18 to donate to a neighboring community in need.  Collection bins will be located inside Vestibule A at all three schools - open during school hours only.  Give the gift of warmth!

PTA VOLUNTEERS/COMMITTEE SIGN UP

The PTA needs your help! You could help with Teacher Appreciation plans, birthday signs, the yearbook, volunteering, event planning or fundraising. We’ll help every step of the way - we just need willing volunteers. We don’t know what the next school year will look like but we hope to bring back more of our traditional events. And if we can’t have our normal events, we’ll need help with some new things. If you want to know more or if you have any questions, please just let us know.
