he NEST is made up of parents/guardians, teachers and other volunteers who support the activities and education of our students. Some of the events sponsored by the NEST include

In addition, we coordinate fundraisers and partner with local businesses to raise funds for academic enrichment opportunities. We all know the state of California's budget crunch is leading to cuts to school programs. Fortunately, we can raise money for Hickman simply by purchasing our daily necessities by signing up with Amazon Smile-The Hickman Nest - Nurturing & Encouraging Students Together .

The NEST is also committed to supporting a high-quality education for the students at Hickman Elementary. Each year, The NEST funds many excellent enrichment programs for our students, including:

  • Assemblies
  • Field trips
  • Family programs
  • Awards ceremonies
  • Teacher requests for classroom supplies
  • Technology (RazKids, Starfall, Achieve 3000)
  • Art Teacher
  • Music Teacher
  • Refreshments for Monthly Coffee with the Principal
  • Read Across America Day
  • Running Club Equipment
  • Buses for field trips
  • STEAM programs

Parents and community members can also support our students' academic development by volunteering for NEST events. Volunteers are essential to a strong NEST, so please give your time generously!

We hope you'll consider becoming a member and/or supporting Hickman's NEST.

The NEST would like to hear from you! If you would be interested in working on projects that benefit all the students at Hickman Elementary, please be sure to fill out a current volunteer form from the office. Contact Sasha Patton, the NEST president if you have any questions.

The NEST meets the second Thursday of every month, times alternate between 6 p.m. and 8 a.m. Room L-2.
