another exciting week with a lot going on at Hickory Hill! I want to thank
everyone who was able to attend last night’s 2nd and 3rd
grade music programs. They did an amazing job and it’s so exciting to see
such talent throughout our building and community!
As the cold
weather begins to set in for the fall and winter months please stay updated on
weather forecasts and be sure your child dresses for the outdoors. All
classrooms have one or two recesses outside each day if it is not raining, snowing
or below 0 degrees wind chill. Scarves, hats, mittens, gloves along with a
nice warm coat are important so your child can be comfortable outdoors for 10-15
minutes at one time. Also, unless the morning temperature with wind chill
factored in, dips below 0 degrees we will still have walking club every morning
outside beginning at 7:40. Please be sure your child is prepared and bundled up
as they exit vehicles. If temperature is too cold or the weather is
inclement, students will come directly into the building to participate in
walking club in the main hallway until the first bell rings at 8:05.
The Fall Party
will be held on Friday, October 31st, from 2:00 P.M. to 3:00 P.M.
Costumes are not allowed at the parties. Parents and volunteers are
welcome to attend but may not go up to the classrooms until 2:00 P.M. We
will have a list of approved classroom liaisons that may go up to the
classrooms at 1:45 P.M. to begin setting up. In an effort to minimize
distractions and maintain security we will have tables set up in the front
foyer and will require all visitors to sign in and get a visitors name badge. I
appreciate everyone’s understanding and cooperation.
will be sent home on Friday, October 31st. You may keep the
report at home but please sign the front of the envelope indicating you have
seen the report and send it back with your child. Please feel free to contact
your child’s teacher if you have any questions.
everyone a safe and relaxing weekend! See you all on Monday!
