Character Counts Week!

We are excited to partner again with the entire Glenview and surrounding area to support Character Counts week 2021! As in the past, we will be collecting donations for the Northfield Township Food Pantry at both Henking and Hoffman the week of October 18. You will find donation bins at each school entrance to drop off non-perishable items. Below is a list of high priority needs from the Food Pantry's website:



Boxed cereal

Juice & juice boxes

Pancake mix & syrup

Canned soup

Chili & beef stew

Plain rice (1-2 lbs. packages)

Canned peas & mixed vegetables

Boxed potatoes

Laundry & dish detergent

All purpose cleaner


We are looking for volunteers to help collect items from the bins each day and transfer them to the Food Pantry. If you're interested in helping the PTA pull off this meaningful program, you can sign up here.

TikTok + Our Children

We join the entire D34 community in concern about the latest TikTok trends we are seeing play out in our schools. Please know that all PTA Presidents are meeting to discuss and strategize how to best support our students and families and keep our schools safe. We will keep you updated with the most current information and of course if you have any suggestions, concerns or questions you can always reach out to us at president@hehopta.org or vicepresident@hehopta.org


We'd like to share this resource to help guide you in understanding a little bit more about this social media trend.
