News from the PTA

If you have already received this email from your Room Parent, feel free to disregard.  

Hello Parents,

With the holidays quickly approaching, the Hickory Point PTA is organizing an optional support staff holiday gift. The collection for this group of 35 (Detailed below) includes Ms. Deely and her office team, resource and instructional aides, librarians, gym, art, music and computer technology teachers and the maintenance team, who all interact with our children and make the school a happy and healthy learning environment. This collection is being offered purely as a convenience for parents to express our appreciation for their energy and patience with our children.

Again, contribution for this gift is completely optional. The $25 is a suggested amount – but any amount is welcome. Checks must be dropped off by Friday, 12/14/18 to give us time to purchase the gift cards and deliver to the HP Staff on Friday, 12/21/18. If you have any questions about the gifts, please contact either of us.  

Checks must be made payable to Hickory Point PTA. If you include an email address, we can send you a confirmation. Checks can be mailed or delivered to:

Dani Mokhtarian

3064 Palm Lane

Northbrook, IL 60062              


Most importantly, thank you to all those who support the school throughout the year with all the different committees and other volunteer opportunities. Your time and presence in this wonderful community are truly appreciated. Wishing you and your family a happy holiday season!

Dani and April
