PTA School Supply Donation Requests 

Want to help your child’s classroom in some way?  All of your child’s necessary school supplies will be provided by Hickory Elementary and TUSD.  Added supplies will enhance enriching activities planned by teachers and parents.  

Take advantage of the summer “Back to School” sales.  The items on the lists are not necessarily used every day but rather for special projects or enrichment lessons.  Your DONATION IS OPTIONAL but greatly appreciated.  Remember, all supplies will be used for the entire class and should not be individually labeled. 



Hickory's On-Line Communicator -- Important Notice
Hickory communicates to parents weekly by emailing the On-Line Communicator. The On-Line Communicator contains the Principal's Newsletter, school activities, Fundraisers, and external activities.

If this is your first year at Hickory, or if you have not previously signed-up for Hickory's On-Line Communicator, it is important that you do so. This will help protect our environment by saving paper, trees, and landfill space. This will also help Hickory save cost on paper and toner which can be used for school programs, activities, and field trips.

STOP, WALK, TALK.  Make sure your child understands what steps to take if they or someone they know is being bullied.  Use these resources to help your child engage in positive behavior. 

Check out the district's new Family Welcome Enrollment Center.  The center provides parents all the information they need to enroll their student in TUSD as well as information on Common Core, Permits and Special Education along with a host of other services.
