Tuesday, August 14, 2018 – Hale Update

Dear Hale community,

We are excited to be less than a week away from welcoming our students and families back from a long summer break!  We hope you have made some great memories with your family this summer; we are looking forwarding to building some great ones too as we get the year started!

Back to School Picnic and Curriculum Night

We hope to see you on August 16th between 5:15 and 7:15 for our Back to School Picnic.  As a New this year we will be combining our Back to School Night and Curriculum Night into one evening.  You will still have a chance to drop off your student’s school supplies and familiarize yourself with the classroom.  Each teacher will be sharing valuable information about your child’s curriculum, classroom procedures, and other school wide information.  The presentations will be done twice during the time frame in order to allow parents with more than one child to attend the presentation in both classrooms.  Each presentation will last approximately 45.  The PTA will be on hand selling spirit wear, yearbooks, PTA memberships and look for volunteers to help with the many great events we have throughout the school year.
