Dear parents & guardians,

This year we really want to promote community/parent involvement. We want this time to always be purposeful and add value to your student's class or activity. Here are some examples of ways to get involved:

  • Classroom volunteers during centers/stations based on each teacher's need
  • Sign up to be a room parent
  • Lunch with a family member during the designated week each quarter to have the opportunity to try our hot lunch menu
  • Help with Project Based Learning (PBL) time during the last hour of the school day
  • Offer assistance with class projects
  • Attend and participate in PTO events
  • Help manage the Hawk Pride store on the 2nd Thursday each month

If you have specific question please feel free to contact the office or your child's teacher. Thank you so much for supporting Hiawatha Hawks!
