Hello Hickory Families,

October has been a full month of activities and events and the holidays are just around the corner.

Thank you Kelli Hammond and Kristie Papscoe in organizing Movie Night this year. Thank you to Katie Kaneshiro and Lan Yokota for selling our Hickory Spirit Wristbands at Movie Night. Thank you to Val Mayer and Allyson Smolko for organizing another successful year of the Book Fair. Our 2nd graders won the Coin Challenge so they continue to hold this title for 2 years now. Great teamwork! The Hickory Library will proudly display this Silver Coin trophy...READ MORE

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.
