Diaper Drive Happening Next Week!!

The He/Ho PTA is proud to partner with Share our Spare to host a diaper drive next week Monday, 9/27 through Monday, 10/4 to help end diaper need in Chicago.

Did you know:


  • 1 in 3 children in Chicago live below the poverty level
  • Despite the overwhelming need, diapers and wipes are not covered by federal assistance programs
  • Parents report having to choose between food or diapers for their children




If you would like to help the diaper crisis in our community, you can bring diapers (opened packages ARE welcome!!) to either Henking or Hoffman and drop them in the bins located in the buildings' foyers. **Sizes 4, 5 & 6 as well as PullUps are of highest need**


You can also visit shareourspare.org to donate virtually.

Volunteers Needed To Collect Donations!

We are looking for volunteers to help check and empty the donation bins at the end of each day so they don't overflow into the hallways! If you're interested in volunteering you can sign up here. Thank you!!

Yearbook Committee Wants Your Pictures!

We are currently gathering pictures from the first few weeks of school and would love to add your happy children to our yearbook pages! If you have any pictures you'd like to send us you can do so by emailing them to:

heyearbookpics@gmail.com (Henking photos)

hoyearbookpics@gmail.com (Hoffman photos)

Join us for Mom's Night Out!

Need a Fall wardrobe refresh? Want to get out of the house and hang with your girlfriends? Join us for a fun evening of shopping and friends at Apricot Lane (in the Glen) on Wednesday October 6! Register with a friend or two and then grab dinner or drinks afterward, too!


15% of purchases that date will go directly back to the PTA!
