The Annual Fall Festival is a community/family event held every fall to welcome everyone back and kick off the school year in a super fun way!
HES PTA invites students to shop for their family members at the Holiday Shop. Inexpensive items are available for purchase during recess and afterschool for a few days in December.
Winter Family Fun Night
The PTA puts on a fun family event every winter to get us all out of the house and enjoying a fun activity during the long winter months. In the past Basket Bingo has been held and this year a Sweetheart Dance is being considered. Whatever the event it will be sure to help your family beat those winter blues!!
Throughout the school year the PTA schedules restaurant nights at local restaurants to give HES families a chance to spend time together and raise money for our school. HES PTA receives between 10% and 50% of the sales at each event.
Spring Fun Run
This year we are excited to be hosting our first Hammond Elementary Boosterthon Fun Run in May 2016 to help us achieve our fundraising goals for the year. The HES Boosterthon Fun Run is a fun, nine-day character, fitness and leadership program that combines world-class and engaging character content with a fundraising event for our school. This event will kick-off with a school wide Pep Rally on May 10, 2016. For the next 7 days, all students will have a grade level character lesson during the first 10-15 minutes of their recess time entitled Big World Recess in which they will learn about young people from all over the world doing activities that keep them fit and being leaders in their communities. The program will culminate on May 19, 2016 with the actual Fun Run itself in which all HES students will run 35 laps, for which they have been sponsored by family, friends, business contacts, ect. Each lap has a different theme to keep the students motivated during the run.
