Hemingway Parents Auxiliary

The Hemingway Parents Auxiliary (PA) provides support for the Hemingway staff and students and encourages community within the Ernest Hemingway STEAM School. The ways that our PA contributes to the well-being of students and teachers are listed to the right.

There is no fee for the Hemingway Parents Auxiliary, but we do hold fundraisers during the year to raise money and we encourage your participation in these fundraisers. Last year the PA provided nearly $125K in support to our school– that equates to almost $250 for each student!

One-time donations from families to support the PA are always appreciated. Checks may be made payable to Hemingway Parents Auxiliary and dropped off in the office or mailed to PO Box 4555 Ketchum ID, 83340.

The Hemingway Parents Auxiliary is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization so your donation may be tax deductible. If you are making a donation via check, please make your check out to “Hemingway Parents Auxiliary”.

Teacher Appreciation

Helping Build Healthy, Happy Kids

A few of the things we do:

Parent Engagement

Organize Hemingway parent meetings throughout the school year.

Teacher Support

Provide grant funds to faculty members for approved activities and equipment and supplementing out-of-pocket expenses through the purchase of additional school supplies.

Tech and Art Resources

Meet the needs for STEAM and technology requests by providing school software and public performance licenses that are not funded by the district.

Make Connections

Create, update, and manage the online Hemingway student and family directory to help keep our community connected.

Community Events

Produce and support various events throughout the year including:

  • Back to School Bash
  • Wagons Ho! (a favorite 4th grade event)
  • Grandparents & Special Friends Day
  • Skate Night
  • Middle School dances
  • 5th and 8th Grade Graduation Ceremonies

Our Board & Volunteers

Without the volunteer parents that assume leadership roles every year, our organization would not exist. We are grateful for the time, effort, financial support and energy that all of our parent, teacher and student volunteers provide.
