PTA President's Message

October 1, 2015

Hello Hickory Families,

I hope many of you are settling into a routine of being back at school. And for those that just started school, are feeling more comfortable with your new surroundings, teachers, and classmates. Hickory Elementary is a wonderful place to learn so I am hoping you are enjoying being here. It has been a pleasure to have an opportunity to meet our Kinder parents at our First Kiss n Cry Social and at our PTA Volunteer Fair. Thank you to all of you that attended these events and signed up to volunteer for our programs and events. Being a PTA and classroom volunteer is a great way to meet other parents and to help our students and teachers.

My volunteer journey started at the Library helping with the library classes. Along the way, I have met a lot of great parents that volunteer in various other programs I hope you will have a similar positive experience as I did when I first came to Hickory..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.
