Welcome Hedden Hawk students and families to the 2022-2023 school year! We are proud and grateful to support this wonderful school in the Fife School District. We are fortunate to have an incredible staff who are dedicated to providing our students with the best education and learning experiences possible. Our learning community is made up of such kind and curious students, as well as generous and involved families and community members. We look forward to welcoming both our returning students as well as those joining us for the first time. 

As staff begin returning to the building later this month, you will see updates on our website and Facebook page. These links represent a few of the key ways that we look to maintain communication with our community and we encourage you to take a look when you get a chance and check back in for those updates ongoing throughout the school year. Please note that our PTA transitioned to a PTO this past year in order to make participation easier and free.
