Dear Hoffman Families,
We had so much fun on Halloween - thank you to all the room parents who helped create fun activities for the students at the parties, and thank you to the PTA for arranging sherbet cups for all!
We also had a great time last Friday at High-five Friday with the Glenview Police and Fire Departments! (Pictures below.) There was even a surprise appearance by the actual Hoffman Hornet!
We are so lucky to have families and a community that supports our school and students!

We sold over $13,000 in books this year, with over $5,000 going directly to Henking and Hoffman libraries!
Stay tuned for our next Book Fair in April at Hoffman.
Thank you to our Fall Benefit Volunteers!
Thank you to our chairs, Johanna Mishra and Jennifer Patel, as well as all of the amazing volunteers that made this event possible!
