    Dear Parents, 

    We will have a holiday celebration next Thursday at 1:30. Students will build gingerbread houses. I am looking for donations from parents for the supplies needed to create these masterpieces. Please add your name to the Google Doc if you can send an item or two in with your child. Thanks!

  • Meet Mrs. Hultgren

    Hi friends. Thanks for visiting my page. Let me tell you a little about myself. I'm thrilled to be in my 22nd year of teaching here at Hiawatha School. I have been teaching second grade for about 16 years, but I started at Hiawatha as a kindergarten teacher. I am super-lucky to share that I absolutely LOVE my job. I have a lot of fun with kids because, quite honestly, I believe that I still am a kid myself...
