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. On average the PA spends approximately $75 per year on every 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 you can make a donation through this website.
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”.
Helping Build Healthy, Happy Kids
A few of the things we do:
Organize Hemingway parent meetings throughout the school year.
Provide grant funds to faculty members for approved activities and equipment and supplementing out-of-pocket expenses through the purchase of additional school supplies (such as gift certificates to Jane’s at the beginning of the year).
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.
Create the Hemingway directories that are distributed to all students to help keep our community connected.
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
- Rainbow Day
- Middle School dances
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.
