Recess Equipment Drive

Dear Hedgcoxe Parents,

Our wonderful student council has decided to have a recess equipment drive. We would greatly appreciate if you sent your child with old/new in good condition recess equipment (basketballs, footballs, soccer balls, hula hoops, frisbees, jump ropes, etc.) for their grade level's recess enjoyment. This will start now and be open until December 22nd. Thank you for your participation. There will be a drop-off bin in the front hallway.

Science Fair Judges Needed

If you are interested in judging our Science Fair entries for the 2015-2016 school year please contact Vickie Grayson at Vickie.Grayson@pisd.edu.

Box Tops

Our Hedgcoxe community has done well at clipping Box Tops to support our school. We sent in a little over $400 worth of Box Tops this past submission and should be receiving a check in the mail soon to help Hedgcoxe fund its various projects. We hope to collect over $1500 by the end of the school year!

Two events are coming your way:

  • Next week, we are asking each student to bring in just ONE Box Top. Students who bring in a Box Top will receive a pencil to use in the classroom or at home.
  • In January, we will hold a contest to see which class in each grade can collect the most Box Tops. Start finding those Box Tops now!

Box Tops is such an easy way to help out our school. Every little bit helps! And, Hedgcoxe appreciates your support!
