Principal's Corner

 

Dear Hedenkamp Families and Students,

We hope you have enjoyed a relaxing and safe summer with your families. On behalf of the Hedenkamp Elementary School staff, we are excited to welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year! The knowledgeable and dedicated Hedenkamp staff strive to provide dynamic instruction while also focusing on the social, emotional, and physical well-being of students. We will guide and provide your child with the knowledge and skills necessary to be a successful, productive member of society.

Education is a lifelong process, and it is truly an honor to learn and grow with our Hedenkamp community each year. Our students are at the heart of any educational journey, and we are excited to bring many new opportunities for our students to enhance their development of being positive forces in our global community.

We welcome your participation and support this school year. Working together, we will be able to allow our students to reach their potential and celebrate their achievements. Together, as a team, we can have the greatest success as a community. To keep you informed about student learning and school activities, we will send information via our school blog, School Messenger, Class Dojo, or Twitter. Additionally, there will be other opportunities for us to connect through Coffee with the Principal, ELAC, SSC, and PTA. Please be sure to follow our school blog at www.hedenkamp.wordpress.org for the most up-to-date information. Your participation, partnership, and voice are valuable to our Hedenkamp Community.

The staff and us thank you for trusting us with your most precious possession, your child(ren). We take their care, growth and well-being seriously. We look forward to partnering with you for an eventful and successful school year being a HUSKY!

Remember...Once a Husky, Always a Husky! Yours in education,

Erin Williamson, Principal

Catherine Kratochvil-Rojo, Associate Principal

Welcome!

Our Mission

Hedenkamp Elementary School is committed to creating a cumulative effect for our students. In the words of Carl Glickman: To fully educate a student, teachers need to do their best during their temporary time together and care just as much about the educational experiences that the student had before coming and the experiences that the student will have after leaving. To believe that the classroom teacher's job is to operate solely in the present with his or her immediate charge is to deny a school the opportunity to provide a cumulative, purposeful effect.

Our Vision

Hedenkamp Elementary School shares the district's vision for our local learning community. Hedenkamp is committed to providing a safe, challenging, and nurturing environment for all of our children.

Our children are creative-thinking, high-achievers, and confident in their abilities. They are committed to lifelong learning and responsible citizenship. They are unique individuals who take pride in developing their full potential. Our diversity gives us strength and promotes equity for all. Our learning environment is based on high expectations and clear standards. Families, schools, and communities work together to benefit all children, which fosters respect for one another.

We embrace a rapidly changing world and look to our community and district for support. Students are provided the tools and strategies to become self-sufficient and technologically proficient, accessing information worldwide. Students are motivated to meet high academic standards, which include art, drama, and physical fitness. Students appreciate all cultures and languages and do not take note of individuals' economic status.

We look forward to the future with hope and confidence.
