Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is the Fiesta 5K and Fun Run?
A: The Fiesta 5K and Fun Run is the spring fundraiser for the Huebner Elementary PTA. In addition to raising significant funds to support PTA programs at Huebner, this event has turned in to an annual tradition that brings together the Huebner community – families, teachers, staff as well as local business owners and community partners. It encourages fitness and healthy living among our children and is of course, a lot of good, family fun. All proceeds benefit the programs of the Huebner Elementary PTA. Some of these programs include: Art in the Classroom, off campus field trips, recycling initiatives, campus improvement and continuing parent education.
