Pastries with Parents

This is one of the many events at Hickman to promote strong community and school-parent bond. We have also called this event, "Donuts with Dad" and "Muffins with Mom" in the past. It is an attempt to get more parents involved in school.

Makers Space

Students do many projects, and all kinds of crafts that are not complicated or expensive, but are fun. We truly believe that adding Makers Space can help students acquire the skills needed

Veterans Day

Veterans Day celebration and reception is held every year to honor Hickman Veteran parents and grandparents. This event is organized by the music teacher and the counselor. We have a color guard and the choir performs patriotic songs.

Talent Show

The talent show is an event where participants perform the arts of singing, dancing, lip-syncing, acting, martial arts, playing an instrument, or other activities to showcase skill.

 

Box Tops for Education

Box top is another way to raise money for school. This program helps our school earn cash that is used for books, computers, and field trips. Box Tops are collected throughout the year.
