REGISTRATION FORMS
All of our families should have received a registration form in the mail.  It is extremely important that parents review the information on the form, make any changes in regards to your child’s information and return those to our school office.  These forms are crucial in securing your child’s enrollment for the 2015-2016 school year.  If any student has an outdated lease, they must have an updated lease on file to maintain their enrollment.  If you have an outdated lease our secretaries will be informing families that we need a new lease on file.

MAP TESTING
We had an extremely successful week with MAP testing.  It  is great to see many of our students reach their reading goals they set in the fall.    Next week we will continue with MAP test and our students will be taking the math portion of the test.  We appreciate your continued support by ensuring your child has a good night sleep, a nutritious breakfast, and are at school on time.

PTA EVENTS
Our PTA has published a new edition of the PTA newsletter [Hanover Highlands Apr 9 Spanish].  There is some important information within the newsletter.  Next Friday, our PTA will be hosting a family movie night.  Parents must attend the event with their children.  The newsletter also has information about hot lunch for MAY and June.  There is much more important information within the newsletter so please take a moment to read the newsletter.

Math Night 2015
The staff at Hanover Highlands will be hosting a math night for students in grades 1st-6th.  Parents have the opportunity to learn how to incorporate websites, and board games to help boost problem solving and math skills.  Our teachers will also share simple  math games they use within their classroom that can also be done at home.  Information about the math night is attached.  We are asking parents to please RSVP so we can ensure that we have enough ice cream at the event.

 It has been a wonderful week back after spring break! Our students jumped right back into learning.  Many of our grade levels have been working on comparing and contrasting different texts, characters and setting within literacy.   Our students are also working on their science projects that will be displayed for parents at our Gallery of Learning.  Several of our grade levels are focusing on geometry units while other grade levels are working on fractions.  Our students are using their super hero powers
