Q: Do classes go on field trips?

A: Each class has approximately two field trips a year. Parent participation is always appreciated. Inform your child's teacher if you are interested in accompanying the class on a trip. Written permission as well as fees for transportation is required for each trip.

Children must wear their Hewitt T-shirts on all class trips, unless otherwise instructed.

Q: What is "Project GREAT"?

A: "Project GREAT" stands for "General Response to Enhance After-School Time". It is a before and after-school child care for working parents run by the school district. It provides supervised child-care for working parents of elementary school age children.


Hewitt children in grades K-5 will be able to attend school at 7:00 AM until the start of the regular school day. A.M. Great will be open every day that school is open. A small breakfast will be supplied each day as part of this program. There is a monthly fee for the program based on the number of days per week that your child attends. Registration is limited.


"PM GREAT" operates from the close of the school at 3:26 PM until 6:30 PM. Its purpose is to provide a safe, caring environment for those children who might otherwise be faced with going home to an empty house. For a detailed brochure and/or registration forms for either of these programs call 255-8953 or inquire at the main office.
