Greetings from the PTO! Welcome back to school, Huskies! We hope everyone is healthy and safe during this time.

 

We need you! By donating to Team Husky, you will support and enhance your child’s education!

 

We are kicking off the 2020-21 school year with our Team Husky Membership Drive and asking all Hicks Canyon families to join us in making a difference in our children’s education by supporting the PTO. Hicks Canyon PTO is dedicated to enhancing the quality of our student's education by involving families, providing valuable programs, and offering financial support to our teachers and school. This year, we will again focus on raising funds primarily through our Team Husky Membership Drive and the spring Jog-a-Thon. 100% of the funds raised goes directly back to our school and students.

 

Hicks Canyon’s PTO provides programs and materials that are not funded by the state. These programs and materials benefit every student at the school. 

 

 

This year, more than ever, your support and contribution to membership is crucial. As we near the start of the year with distance learning and work to make our school site safe to return under CA’s guidelines, we need your support. Every dollar counts! 

 

The Membership Toolkit website will also have information on other items and events as they become available throughout the school year. Our creative juices are in full effect as we try to plan virtual events to keep our Huskies engaged. We would love any ideas you may have. 

 

For families whose contact information is current in Membership Toolkit, The Hicks Canyon PTO can provide updates on events and important school programs. Once a member, families will have access to our Student Directory, a valuable resource throughout the school year! 

 

What are some highlights of what my PTO membership helps support?

 

Virtual learning: 

1. Continued technology support to help our children Inspire, Inquire, and Innovate 

2. 1:1 iPad to child ratio 

3. Software Programs 

4. Online learning support supplies for classes (i.e. blocks for manipulatives, clocks, etc., will vary by grade level). 

5. Art programs 

6. Online book fair 

 

In person: 

1. Increased safety measures in accordance with CA guidelines and beyond common areas and hallways (i.e. additional hand washing stations). 

2. Increased sanitation in and around the classroom (i.e. additional hand sanitizing stations and barriers/shields for the classroom, etc.) 

3. Help support the safety measures that TUSD is already implementing. 

4. Library books and supplies We are all in this together families and Huskies. 

With your support there is no limit to what we can accomplish! Become a Team Husky Member by September 1, 2020 and receive one (1) Husky face mask! 

 

Your support helps make Hicks Canyon a top notch school! To make all these programs and services possible, our goal is to have 100% participation in our Team Husky Membership Drive. We are asking families for a voluntary donation of $200 per child which equates to just ​$1.11 per day of school. ​Please also check to see if your employer matches employee contributions to schools. Many of the companies that provide matching funds are listed on our website.

As a promotional incentive for joining Team Husky by September 1st, we will be offering one (1) children's size Husky Face Mask per membership. All families who have donated $200 or more by the deadline will receive a mask.

 

On behalf of the PTO board, teachers and the students of Hicks Canyon, we thank you in advance for your contribution and support. If you have any questions about PTO programs or funds, please feel free to contact us at ptopresident@hickscanyon.org or membership@hickscanyon.org.

 

Regards,

Isaac Grzegorczyk,​ President
