The Hubbard Woods PTO holds its annual Book Fair in the Resource Center of the school each November. The Book Fair is a great place to find age-appropriate, worthwhile books for your family. You can also purchase books for Hubbard Woods classrooms based on teacher wish lists.
Anderson’s Bookfair Company (ABC) provides a large assortment of books, guided by the Hubbard Woods Resource Center staff. 25% of proceeds go directly back to the Resource Center to purchase new books and materials for the students to enjoy.
Field Day is an exciting spring tradition at Hubbard Woods School. Students across all grade levels are mixed together and placed on three different teams. Throughout the day, the students participate in a variety of events, activities and games that everyone can enjoy.
Highlights include water balloon toss, marble search, tennis ball throw, and junk relay race. The day includes an indoor trivia contest, free Domino’s pizza for lunch and concludes with a delicious, cold popsicle. The activities are planned and led the HW Kinetic Wellness staff. Over 30 parent volunteers are needed for the day.
Every March, we take time to recognize all of the hard work and dedication of our amazing faculty and staff. Thanks to the tireless efforts of so many, Hubbard Woods is a warm, welcoming school for our children. The Teacher Appreciation Committee organizes our parent body to create a very special week for our teachers.
We provide breakfast and afternoon treats in the faculty lounge throughout the week, create a banner of thanks from students, collect donations for raffle baskets and goodie bags, and sell raffle tickets to honor teachers and raise funds that go back to the classrooms. Room parents organize personal notes from students and flowers to be given to the teachers mid-week and on Friday, we host a teacher luncheon to wrap up the special week and draw raffle prize winners!
The Hubbard Woods PTO runs a fun bingo event for families to enjoy some social time together on a Saturday afternoon in the winter. Parents have the opportunity to volunteer their time to help run the event, which is held in the gymnasium.
The event is not a fundraiser. The event’s minimal expenses are funded though the PTO’s budget, and the bingo supplies will be reused year after year.
The Hubbard Woods Social is a long standing tradition for parents and faculty to mingle in a fun environment. Although hosted by the PTO, it is not a fundraiser. In fact, the PTO covers the cost of teachers and staff, thanks to past contributions by Hubbard Woods families.
Get ready for a very special morning gathering of the Fourth Graders and their parents, on the last day of their schooling at Hubbard Woods! This longstanding Hubbard Woods tradition is for all 4th graders as they graduate.
The morning features breakfast for the fourth graders (coffee for the parents), as they enjoy a very special movie that covers their career as a HWS student. It is a memorable morning for all, as they look back on a very special time – and look ahead to big things at Skokie School next year!
The Bike Rodeo is held every May for second grade children on the Hubbard Woods school playground. It is designed to build students’ independence, confidence, physical strength and competence on their bicycles.
Your young students don’t stop learning and growing when they leave the classroom. There’s so much for them to explore at home, too!
Every March, we put together a wide variety of activities (some brand new) related to Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics, and pack them all into a fun evening for your whole family.
