Goodbye & Thank You!

4th Graders and Families,

I am sorry that we couldn’t spend the spring together in school, as this time of year is especially fun…field trip, track and field, Race for Education, fun projects and activities in class (now that the testing would be over and curriculum would be winding down), and more. Please see your email for a 4-Groff Google Slides Presentation sharing some of our school year!

I hope….that you are able to enjoy the summer.

I hope…that we can get back to a new “normal” sooner than later.

I hope…to see your children next year in the hallways.

I hope…that your children will come back to visit me!!

I hope…that you stay safe and healthy!

TAKE CARE and THANK YOU again for your support and kind words during this difficult time!!

I will miss this group of kiddos!

Fondly,

~Kelley Groff

Week of May 26-29th

ONE last assignment for the Week of May 26th-29th, and it can be found on our 2019-2020 Mrs. Groff’s Google Classroom.

Important REMINDER Regarding Textbooks/Laptops- Please HOLD ON to the Storytown Anthology, and orange Grammar textbook that are probably in your child’s backpack.  These classroom textbooks WILL NEED TO BE RETURNED to me at some point.  (I do not know when that will be- perhaps simply when we return to our building when school is back in session at Hambright.)  I THANK YOU VERY MUCH for helping me out with this, as I will need them in the future with my future students.  At this time, all student laptops, chargers, and bags are to remain in the hands of students.  The district may eventually give out details as to how they are going to handle the technology in the future.  Your child MAY KEEP the math workbooks.

Don’t forget to check out Hambright’s Blog for other important information: https://hambright.pennmanor.net/blog/

Thank you!!

Make Your Mark!

This year, Hambright leaders learned about and began leaving their MARK each day!  Though we have gone to online learning, the year is not over yet. Leaders, we want you to continue to Make good choicesAct kindlyRespect yourself and others, and Keep being your best.  

Parents/Guardians:  We want to know when your sons and daughters are leaving their MARK at home.  Let us know by emailing ME. I will then forward to Dr. Mealy. Please include your child’s name, grade level, date, and a description of how he/she was seen leaving a MARK at home.  Here is an example:

Talia Jones
Grade 4 
4/13/2020
When Talia woke up, she asked her mom how she could help out around the house during the day.

Students who earn Virtual Leader Tickets by leaving a MARK at home will get a shoutout on the Hambright blog. Check out the Hambright blog for more information!
