About Hale Elementary

Hale serves approximately 491 students in kindergarten through sixth grade. It is also home for several students in self-contained Autism Spectrum Disorder classrooms.

At Nathan Hale, we use PBIS as our behavior framework to reinforce positive behavior.  PBIS is short for Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports.  Students have the responsibility to follow the 3B’s of the PBIS behavioral expectations: Be Safe, Be Responsible and Be Respectful. Students will have an opportunity to earn classroom or school wide incentives such as keycards and puzzles.This school year we are presenting a “Purple Person Award” based off of the story The World Needs More Purple People

Hale has an active Parent Teacher Association (PTA) that is very involved in supporting our academic program through the sponsorship of a science fair. The Hale PTA also runs many events such as Movie Night, Birthday Books, Holiday Shop and an Ice Cream Social/Book Fair.

In addition to its excellent academic environment, Hale teachers offer several enrichment opportunities for students with before and after school clubs such as Garden Club, Production Club and Battle of the Books.

A full continuum of special services is available to students in District 54. All children have access to early childhood programs. Each of the elementary schools has gifted resource services, although eligible children can also attend the magnet school.

Nathan Hale Elementary School’s moto is Include, Innovate and Inspire.
