Interested in Joining Cub Scouts? Read Below!

Hello District 34 families. With the start of the school year again, Cub Scout Pack 59 (which meets at Henking) will be starting up our activities as well. We will be focused on safety and will be following COVID19 safety protocols for District 34, Illinois, and the Scouts BSA program. If your son or daughter in Kindergarten through 5th grade is interested in Cub Scouts, we want to support them as best as we can right now. Scouting is a great way to meet new friends and learn valuable life skills, get outdoor/nature education, and participate in community service. We are forming our Kindergarten and 1st grade dens right now and already have several families wanting to participate. But we're available for any child between K-5 to join and enjoy scouting. Any questions should be directed to Larry Kane (Larrykane@gmail.com), the Pack 59 Cubmaster.

PTA Membership Q+A


  • What does it mean to JOIN the PTA? "Joining" simply means you have an active membership (have paid your 2021-2022 membership dues). Each school year we ask parents and faculty who would like to stay informed and participate in our PTA programs to pay their dues and "join" us in building a community of support and enrichment for our Henking and Hoffman students and staff! Active members also get special perks like access to our Online Directory, early access to sign up for special events, and exclusive discount codes at local businesses. (AND, next week members will have first access to our new Spirit Wear online store that will be launching! You'll get a chance to shop before the general public and grab your favorite new items before they sell out!)


  • How much does it cost to join? The 2021-2022 membership dues are $20 and goes directly to the PTA to help fund our programs and initiatives. Our membership dues constitute a large portion of our budget, so your contribution is SO appreciated! You can pay your membership dues by clicking here!


  • Do I HAVE to commit to volunteering or attend meetings if I join? Absolutely not!! While the meetings are super informative (each principal from Henking and Hoffman attend and answer all of our questions!) they are not mandatory at all. Volunteering is also completely optional.
