April 5, 2018 – Principal’s Corner
Dear Hale community,
Between the winter like weather and a busy start to our week spring break seems like a distant memory. Yesterday we had a great assembly with cartoonist Steve Harpster. He walked the students through how to draw many different animals starting with just letters or numbers. Even after a week off staff and students are back in the swing of things.
Check out the latest edition of the Hale Hotline.
As a reminder projects can be dropped off on Thursday from 8:00am-8:25am. Parents can help with setup during the drop off time but students should not be left unattended until 8:20. All project judging will take place during the school day, with the opportunity for family and friends to view the project in the evening.

6:00pm-6:30pm: Project viewing
