Friday Announcements!

This Friday is an early dismissal. We are also going to celebrate Decades Day! Come dressed in the attire of your favorite decade (1950s, 1960s, 1980s, 1990s, etc….).

Here are some fun ideas for ways to dress:

1950s: dress clothes for boys (bow tie!) and long skirts for girls; slicked back hair or pony tails.

1960s-1970s: Hippie clothes! Flower prints, head scarves, big sunglasses, bell bottom jeans

1980s: half-painted face makeup, crimped hair, mismatched jewelry, backwards jerseys, bright neon colors

1990s: over-sized T-shirts, jeans, flannel

Have fun!

Research Paper for Social Studies!


Our scholars were each assigned to do research to learn about one of the 50 states in our country. Together we will learn how to use reference books and informational websites to find information about our states. This is a long term project that we will complete in class. We will be working together with Mrs. Bittenbender’s class. By the end of the unit, we will have research papers for all 50 states!

Here is the link to one of the websites we will be using.

Career Day!

Dear families,

We have been talking a lot about careers, and how our interests, hobbies, and talents can help us decide what sort of career we might like to pursue. Friday is “Career Day” at Hambright. Students are encouraged to dress as their chosen career. For example, a chef might wear an apron and carry a mixing bowl. A carpenter might wear jeans and a tool belt. A teacher might have an ID badge and a dry erase marker.

I am looking forward to seeing all of the unique costumes on Friday!

<3, Ms. G.
