Indian Hills Camp Field Trip

Here are the pictures from our trip.  Thank you, Mr. Ochoa, for sending me yours.  Students had a great time panning for real fake gold, playing on the enormous playground, petting animals in the farmyard, and hiking across the Overland trail with their wagon train.  Enjoy!

I want to give special recognition to Chrystal for being our classroom representative in the school speech contest. Her speech was great and well-delivered. She bravely presented in front of the entire 4th, 5th, and 6th grade.  We are so proud of you, Chrystal!

Pennies for Patients Kick-Off tomorrow!! Spring Fundraiser


Please Support Pennies for Patients!


Hedenkamp students will be taking part in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Pennies for Patients program from February 6th– 24th.
During this program, students will collect money to support LLS’ mission:

Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.


Students will learn about service, leadership, philanthropy and how they can make a difference by changing patients’ lives.
Hedenkamp has its own online giving page that students, parents and faculty can share with friends and family:
Thank you in advance for helping LLS to create a world without blood cancers!
