Good Afternoon Outstanding Hale Community-
 
We hope you are able to enjoy this beautiful weather before the fall temperatures arrive at the end of the week.  Attached you will find the latest edition of the Hotline10-1-14
 
Special message from the PTA President
Many of you have seen or heard about the Senate Bill 16 that has been passed down to the House.  The PTA is changing our monthly board meeting on Monday, October 6th  at 7pm to a general membership meeting.  If you are interested in hearing what this about and how we can be a voice to change this Bill to not affect District 54, please come and hear what we can do.  I am hoping that a representative from STC will be able to speak on behalf of District 54.
WE cannot change anything if WE do not use our voice.
 
Hope to see all PTA Members on Monday.
 
Thank you,
Corinne Mazzacano
PTA President

Good Evening Hale Community-
 
Our teachers are hard at work putting the finishing touches on their classrooms as we are all ready for the school year to begin.  With the start of school in mind we wanted to share some important information with you.
 
Take it to the Streets
Tomorrow starting at 4:00 our staff will be out in the Hale neighborhood welcoming families back to school and passing out a flyer about upcoming events.
 
Arrival and Dismissal Information
As we gear for the start of the school year we want to make sure we keep our parking lot safe for the arrival and dismissal of all of our students.  Please read through the attached document regarding our specific procedures. (Hale Arrival and Dismissal Procedures)
 
First Day of School
On Tuesday August 26th, we will continue our tradition of having students line up on the playground with their teacher before walking into the building at 8:35.
