Huff Elementary

Greetings Huff Families,

It's time to get ready for Hawkfest 2019!  Our annual fun fest is on Friday, May 17, from 5:00-8:00pm. "Song and Dance" is this year's theme, and we'll have some fun new activities (along with plenty of old favorites) for the whole family to enjoy. Read on for some important things you can do NOW to start getting ready.

PRE-ORDER YOUR FOOD before May 10. Back by popular demand, we will again be offering food via pre-order only.  This year our delicious choices include taco plates via Anytime Taco, flavorful Indo-Pakistani favorites from Lados Food Truck, and savory slices from neighborhood favorite NY Pizza. Deadline to order is Friday, May 10. Food can be ordered online here or via paper order forms returned to the Huff office with cash or check payment.

PRE-ORDER HAWKFEST T-SHIRTS before May 8. This year's colorful shirt design, on display in the glass case outside the office, was designed by 1st-grader Ryder S. Blank t-shirts are available in the Huff office if you wish to examine them for sizing. Pre-order forms should be returned to the office by May 8 with cash or check payment. T-shirts will be distributed to students' classrooms by May 13, and additional purchases or exchanges can be made at a table outside the office May 15-17. Supplies are limited and distributed first-come, first-serve.

PRE-SUBMIT WAIVER/APPROVAL FORM before May 16. The "PTA Parent's Approval, Student, Family and Participant Waiver" must be completed for anyone who will be playing in inflatables or climbing the rock wall at Hawkfest. If a waiver has been completed, participants can pick up a paper bracelet at Hawkfest to gain entry to these activities. Return the form to the office or email a scan/pic of it to huffpta@huffpta.org by Thursday, May 16. Forms can also be completed/submitted at Hawkfest.

VOLUNTEER TO HELP WITH GRADE-LEVEL ACTIVITIES. Hawkfest is great because everyone helps make it happen! If you haven't already, you'll soon be hearing from room parents about how you can help lead/supervise activities conducted by each grade level. Please pitch in and give a little time at Hawkfest to help everything run smoothly.

Order forms and waivers mentioned in this announcement are attached to this message, should be coming home in today's Friday folders, and will also soon be available for download at huffpta.org.
