Date change

Hambright Family Fun Movie Night–DATE CHANGE
The Hambright Family Fun Movie Night is being moved to Friday, November 15th due to a conflict with homecoming for the original date. Hambright students and their immediate family members (i.e. parents and siblings only) are welcome.
Again, the movie night will now be held on November 15th. Doors will open at 6:30. The movie will begin at 7:00 pm. Entrance is FREE!
There will be more details about the evening coming home in November.

Happy Friday!

We had a fantastic time at County Park yesterday. I was so impressed with my class and their team building skills/communication. Make sure to ask your favorite 6th grader all about it!

**Today (Friday) is an early dismissal day. Students are dismissed at 1:30pm.

Have a fantastic weekend!

Tomorrow is Picture Day!!

We will have picture day tomorrow (Friday) at 9:40am (before gym class). 🙂 Please send in the envelope with payment and package preference OR submit online using the information that was sent home. Let me know if you have questions! I hope you are enjoying this beautiful weather!

6th Grade Field Trip

We will be heading to Lancaster County Park next Thursday, September 26th. We will leave Hambright around 9:30AM and return around 2:30PM. I am still missing some permission slips and waivers from the park that must be signed. Please be sure to check with your 6th grader about these important forms so everyone can come along on the field trip.

Students will need a packed, disposable lunch next Thursday. They can order one from the cafeteria or bring one from home.

Students will not need anything else. Just dress comfortably for the weather and wear sneakers.

We are looking forward to a great day spent outside team building, hiking and geocaching!

Please contact me with questions and concerns. 🙂
