TIME TO ORDER SQUARE 1 ART KEEPSAKES

What amazing artists we have at Hickory Point! Your student should have received their custom catalog with a code to access their art. You can start shopping immediately!  All items will ship directly to your home within 2-3 weeks of the order date.

If they missed the deadline to submit the hard copy, you can still upload their art to the Square 1 Art website. (Please note that the custom catalog and stickers will not be available when you upload your child's art directly.)

Order by 4/17

See Square 1 Art's FAQs or contact Angie Chmieleski with any question

SHABONEE SCHOOL SUPPLIES 

Attention Hickory Point parents of 2nd graders!! So far, school supplies have been provided for your student by the district. Starting in 3rd grade, there is a list of required school supplies specific to each grade. The PTA has made this process so easy for you. Order school supplies for your student today and save yourself the hassle of trying to find everything before the next school year starts. Plus, kits from EPI cost about 20% less than buying everything separately. Your student’s supplies will be waiting on their desk on the first day of school - how easy is that?! Don’t forget to order for the grade they will start in August (3rd). You can shop packs here using our school code: SHA082 (3 letters/3 numbers). Reach out to Kate with questions. 

EVEREVE FASHION FUNDRAISER EVENT

Save the Date for Thursday, April 18th! Fashion FUNdraiser coming right up! Spruce up your spring/summer wardrobe by shopping at EVEREVE at the Glen anytime from 10am-8pm. Or join us for a special sip/snack and shop hour from 6-8pm! 15% of all purchases benefit the PTA.  

TASTY TUESDAY

Enjoy a meal at Culver's Northbrook on 4/23 from 10am - 10pm. When placing your order, just mention "Hickory Point," and the PTA will receive a 25% contribution. Whether you dine in, take out, or drive-thru, your support counts!

SQUEEZABLE SNACK POUCH RECYCLING PROGRAM

Help us reduce waste and support Hickory Point with the GoGo squeeZ Recycling Program! Simply drop off any brand of flexible plastic snack pouches and caps in our collection bin located in the front vestibule. Once we collect 10 pounds, Terracycle will recycle them and earn points for cash for our school. Let's make eco-friendly choices and support our school together!
