Theme: “I Matter Because”
Does your child enjoy art, music and dance or have an interest in writing, producing films and taking photos? Encourage your child’s inner artist this summer by creating an entry to our PTA Reflections contest! This year’s theme, “I Matter Because,” calls for your own unique interpretation through the arts.

Hankey students in grades K-8 are invited to participate and submit original artwork in one of six areas:
Dance Choreography
Film Production
Music Composition
Visual Arts.

Rules and entry forms can be found online at https://capta.org/resource/participant-forms/ Entries are due to the front office by Monday, September 21, 2020. Contact Jennifer Katayama at jkatayama@gmail.com with any questions.  



Hankey K-8 is excited to be kicking off our annual Global Awareness project focusing on the idea that “HOPE DRIVES ACTION.” Dean Jacobs; world traveler, author and inquirer, will be visiting the campus on Monday, September 26, meeting with students throughout the day to engage them in his “Wondrous Journey- A two year journey that crossed 28 countries.” Dean’s presentations, weaving together uplifting stories and visual images, will help our students create a foundation of hope, upon which they will be taking action throughout the rest of this school year.

Parents– Dean and Principal Aguilara cordially invited you and your family to attend a Hope Drives Action Night, scheduled for Monday, September 26, from 6:30-7:30 pm in our MPR.  Dean will share his adventures, explain how to take the IB Learner Profiles and bring them alive at home, and light the flames of Hope Drives Action within you as well!

Hello Hankey Families and welcome back to school! We are looking forward to a wonderful year. Please mark your calendars for the FIRST PTSA Meeting of the year on Friday September 2nd at 8am in the MPR. We will be discussing all the wonderful things that the PTSA has planned for the new school year!

Starting now, until the end of the school year, Hankey will be raising money for PTSA programs by sending flamingos to family and friends!  For a small donation, you can surprise everyone by sending them a flock of flamingos that will decorate their front yard!  If you live in a condo or apartment, a pot of flamingos will flock to their front door!!  Under the cover of darkness the flock will arrive and stay for 2-3 days until they migrate to the next yard.

Your child should come home with a Flocking For Hankey Flyer with an order form on the back or pay online now!

Price Options
One Family $25.00 USD
Two Families $40.00 USD

Once the order is received by Hankey, a flock will appear on the recipient’s yard along with a letter explaining their arrival.  You can choose to let the person know it was you who flocked them or keep it anonymous!  This is such a fun community event!!  If you have any further questions please contact Jill Murray at tazandzig (at) gmail.com.

So who will you flock first?????
