May 31, 2024

It was an exciting week for our Wolf Pack with Sixth grade celebrations, Water Works field trips, the variety show, and field day! So many fun memories were made as we wrap up the 23-24 school year. Our sixth-grade classes spent time volunteering at Feed My Starving Children, enjoyed a pizza lunch, and competed against the teachers in a kickball game to celebrate their time at Hale before they move on to junior high.  We wish our sixth graders the best of luck and are confident they will continue to do amazing things in junior high and beyond! Field Day was a highlight of the week.  We want to thank Mr. Bykerk for organizing such a special event for our students. Thank you to all parents who volunteered to help. We couldn’t have done it without you!  As this is the last email of the school year, we would like to thank each and every one of you for another successful year at Hale. We appreciate the support and kindness in our community.  We truly are #PackStrong!  We hope you have a wonderful summer! Don’t forget we still have one more day of school next week

Yearbook Issue

We were unfortunately just notified that our yearbook company had a printing issue and our yearbooks will likely not be delivered by the end of the school year. The PTA is working with the vendor on when the yearbooks will be delivered. As soon as we get a specific date will we put a plan in place to get everyone their yearbooks. We apologize for this issue and the last-minute nature of it.
