PTA President's Message

Summer 2015

Hello Hickory Parents,      

I hope all of you are enjoying the summer break with your children.  Congratulations to our Hickory Board of 2015-16 School Year, our term officially started as of July 1st.   I would like to thank each one of them in stepping up to be part of this team.  

My name is Jen Antolin, your incoming Hickory PTA President. The PTA Board and I are working on improvements to make our current PTA a more communicative one.    

I am using the theme of “Growing and Moving Forward Together” because I wanted to convey that as a team, all of us can work together to bring about positive changes.  One of my goals for this PTA is to build a volunteer support base by having the younger grade parents to get involved and become familiar with how the PTA process works.  Please keep in mind that those of us with 5th graders this year, will be graduating onto Middle School.  Let’s join together to have some fun while volunteering at one or more of our Hickory events.  

This coming year the Hickory Student Council is embarking on a new venture. They will be selling “Spirit Sticks by Spirit Monkey” that highlight different events on our campus.  The students are sure to be excited about collecting these colorful spirit sticks. PTA will be supporting the Student Council by offering as an incentive a “Hickory Spirit Key Ring” with our Fall Direct Donation Campaign.  

PTA Info Packet Pick-up for all grades:    

• Friday, August 28 at 7:15 – 10:00 am, at the Hickory Cafeteria or

• Monday, August 31st at 12 noon – 3:00 pm, at the Hickory Cafeteria 


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.
