It is hard to believe that we are about to enter the last week of school. This has been an amazing year of learning at Hanover Highlands and we have seen huge growth in our students. We have shared some great memories with your students and I hope they cherish those memories for years to come. Before we end our year there are a few items we would like to share.
Field Day & Last Day of School
Thursday, June 5th is our last day of school for all of our students, including kindergarten. On our last day of school our students will be participating in our annual Field Day in the morning. Our P.E. teacher, Mrs. Cervantes, has been working with our 6th graders on ideas to ensure we have a fun filled morning. The theme for this year is World Cup and each class will be representing a different country. It looks like it will be a sunny morning. If you want your child to have sunscreen on they must apply the sunscreen on at home. In the afternoon our students will enjoy a P.B.I.S. celebration. Each grade level will participate in some fun activities during the afternoon for being respectful, responsible and safe all year long. We have been planning many fun and exciting activities for our students to have an enjoyable last day.
Report cards will be sent home the last day of school. We will also be sending home a recommended reading list for students. Although your child isn’t at school they need to still be reading to maintain the skills they have learned all year long. I have included an informational flyer that shares the importance of reading and the impact on a student that doesn’t read. Student will also receive a math packet as well. The materials in the packet are skills that they have already covered this year and will allow them to keep those skills fresh. Any child not in attendance on the last day of school will have their report card mailed to their residence.
6th Grade Students
6th Grade students will be receiving a reading packet and math packet from Frost. The principal and assistant principal came to Hanover to discuss the expectations. The principal, from Frost, will also be sending an email home with the information to all our 6th grade parents.
We couldn’t let the school year end without thanking our many volunteers. There are so many of our parents and community members that volunteer before school, during school and after school. Our staff and students truly appreciate all you do. Our students are able to enjoy hot lunch, Halloween Bash, Holiday Store, Dinner with Santa, Nacho Day, Picture Day, classroom parties, and the list goes on. Thank you for the many hours you put in again and again. The staff put together a little treat to say thank you for each of our volunteers. They will be ready for pick-up on Field Day in the front office. Please take a moment to stop by and pick up a small token of appreciation.
The weather has been wonderful with warm temperatures and sun. We want to remind our parents to ensure that your child is dressed appropriately for school. The following are inappropriate clothing during school hours at Hanover:
- Revealing clothing such as bare midriffs, bare backs, spaghetti straps,
- See-through fabrics, low-cut tops, low-riding pants, short shorts, or short skirts;
- Clothing with inappropriate slogans or pictures such as depictions of drugs, alcohol, tobacco, gangs, vulgar language, or violence
Students should come dressed for school in clothing that is modest, suitable for school activities, and reasonable for the purposes of maintaining health, reducing distractibility, and increasing safety in the school. Suitability of clothing for school is subject to the judgment and discretion of school staff members.
We hope you have a wonderful summer and make some wonderful memories as families. We hope are students read over the summer and write about their wonderful adventures.
