Yearbook Update

If you ordered a 2018-2019 yearbook, your child should have received one last week! If you are still interested in purchasing a yearbook, we have a limited amount available on a first-come, first-serve basis for $15 cash.  You can visit the school secretary in the Hambright office to trade your $15 cash for a yearbook if there are still any available. Email ptohambright@gmail.com with any inquiries.

Here is some unique information about this year’s yearbook!
1)  YOUR YEARBOOK IS INTERACTIVE!  MAKE IT COME TO LIFE!

HP
Reveal 
is an app that allows you to
bring pictures to life. You will see pictures in your
yearbook with a navy
blue
 border around them (ex.
page 12–Sixth Graders Have Voted—Most Likely to Break Out in a Dance). You will be able to place your
phone over the picture to reveal a video!

Directions to Set-Up HP Reveal:

Go
to your App Store on your cell phone or device (i.e. Google Play).

Search
for “HP Reveal,”
click “Install,” and click “Open.”

Click
the blue button that says, “Create an Account.”

Type your email address, and click
“Next.”

Create
a username and password.

Click “Create Account”
and/or “Join” if prompted.

Type “HambrightLeaders” in the search bar.
Select “HambrightLeaders’s Public Auras,” and click “Follow.” 

Close
the app.

Directions
to Use HP Reveal Anytime:

Go
into your HP Reveal App.

Click
the blue button at the bottom that looks like a square.
Find pictures with navy blue
borders in your yearbook.

Hold your phone over each picture to view the associated videos.
2) THE COVER WAS SPECIALLY CREATED BY THE 6TH GRADERS!
The
2018-2019 yearbook cover was inspired by the phrase, “Words to Live
By.” As leaders at Hambright, the 6th graders were given the individual
task of choosing one characteristic that embodies who they are and/or
who they strive to be. As you can see on your yearbook cover and the
principal’s message page, the words they chose are splashed all over as
an expression of the legacies they want to leave behind and/or their
future aspirations as they spring forward into a new chapter of their
lives in middle school. Thank you to Mrs. Wigerman for assisting the 6th
graders in this special yearbook creation!

Spirit Day Reminders

It’s no secret that we are all ready for summer! As planned previously this year by the 6th grade PTO Leader Committee, Tuesday, June 4th is our Ham”BRIGHT” Beach Dress Day! Although the children CANNOT come in their swim suits, they can come dressed in “fun in the sun” type clothing! Some Hawaiian shirts or appropriate tanks, shorts, and sandals might be comfortable! How about wearing sunglasses or a fun beach hat to top it off?
Additionally, on June 5th, don’t forget to come in your Hambright leader t-shirts or Penn Manor spirit wear!

Physical Fun Day and Hero Fair

It has been a busy few weeks for third graders! We had a great Physical Fun Day on Tuesday of last week. The weather cooperated and it was a perfect cool and cloudy day.

A HUGE thank you to all of the families who stopped by on Friday to come to our Hero Fair! It was a great turn out and many students commented about how they were nervous at first, but felt much better about it while they were talking to parents. Thanks for making them feel so comfortable. Thank you, also, for all your hard work on the hero reports at home!
