Mrs. Murr snapped a few pictures of the boys and girls at recess on Tuesday. The wind chill is too cold to go outside today, but what fun they had a few afternoons in snow gear! The boys and girls staying inside had fun too, playing Uno, making cards, building with Tinker Toys, and synergizing to complete some glow-in-the-dark puzzles. Way to go!
Another delay for Tuesday
We have a 2-hour delay with modified kindergarten today. See you at 10:50/11:00 again!
Good morning! We are starting with a 2-hour delay today. A decision should be made by 7:15 if we need to close school. Stay tuned!
Attention parents: If we receive a significant amount of snow, students in first grade are permitted to play outside.
A few things: Students MUST have snow boots. They also should have snow pants or a change of pants. Students who do not bring them, or just choose to stay indoors may do that also! But thanks to Mrs. Murr for volunteering this fun time, we will allow kids to play in the snow at Hambright. The first one of the year, in the new building!
Just be sure to have a bag with a change of pants, or snow pants. Also boots, hats, gloves, etc. It’s extra helpful if students are able to dress themselves. I’m sure you can imagine us teachers spending ten minutes getting students in their snow pants/parkas/boots. haha! Thanks for your help. Maybe we can enjoy this winter wonderland at school!
Attention parents! Due to the impending snow….
We are going with a 10:30 secondary and 11:30 elementary early dismissal today. Be safe everyone!
Day 100 is coming up. In first grade, we celebrate this grand 100th day of school. (February 4).
A few things:
1. All students in first grade will rotate around to ten different stations, to complete fun activities at each. To make this work, we rely on some fabulous generous parent/grandparent volunteers. Students will bring home ayellow sheet tomorrow, for parents who are interested in volunteering.
2. I ask students to make a project to share. They have a green sheet to bring home with them tomorrow. More details are on this paper.
Spirit Day coming up!
On Friday January 30th we will be having a Race for Education Kick off day with a
Leader t-shirt/crazy sock day. We want to “sock” it to our goal this year!! The PTO will be presenting at the ASO to get the kids excited for this year.
Papers will come home this week.
As a result of the school closing on Monday, January 12, 2015:
Friday, January 16, 2015, is now a regular school day for all students in kindergarten through 12th grade. (We will still have a substitute…Mrs. Peifer….but it’s a regular cycle day 5). This is the last day of the marking period.
Monday, January 19, 2015 remains a vacation day for students and faculty.
The secondary in-service day and elementary early dismissal has been moved from Friday, January 16, 2015 to Tuesday, January 20, 2015. Students in grades 7-12 will not have school, and students in grades K-6 will have a 1:30 p.m. early dismissal on January 20th.
This is the make-up day 3 from November.
Wednesday, January 21 will be a day 6, normal cycle days return!
School will now be in session on Friday, February 13, 2015.
School is now closed today. Stay tuned, as this may impact our days later this week (Friday may be a full day, and next TUESDAY may be the early dismissal day.). Not positive, just a hunch I have with the high school schedule.
I hope everyone is warm and dry and safe inside today. Curl up with a good book(s), play some games, use your imagination and write a great story about slipping on the sliding ice out there….while sipping hot chicken soup with rice! Ask your first grader about that poem! Share any fun work with me tomorrow!
