Papillion-La Vista School District

Welcome to Hickory Hill!

 
 
News for the Week of September 25, 2014
 
A Note from Mr. Guthmiller

It is hard to believe that September is coming to an end and the fall season is upon us. It is amazing how fast time goes! The weather lately has certainly been a nice change as the cool mornings turn into beautiful fall afternoons. Your children continually amaze us with their commitment to hard work — the highlights of each day for me is getting into classrooms and seeing all the learning that is happening!

Just a reminder for parents who drop off and pick up students from school. Please do not exit your vehicles along the curb. If you need to assist your child, please park in one of the parking slots and walk them across. We do our best to keep the traffic moving and appreciate your cooperation in pulling up all the way to the bus loading zone. Remind your child to be looking for your vehicle so they are ready after school to jump in. In addition, if you walk to and from school and you need to travel south on Rogers Drive, please do not cut directly across our parking lot as it really holds up traffic after school. We have adults supervisors positioned in a way that they will politely encourage you to use the sidewalk that goes around the parking lot. We appreciate your help in this matter.

Hopefully families have all had a chance to log in and set their conference date/time preferences for the upcoming Parent/Student/Teacher conferences on October 14th and 15th. The staff looks forward to this time to be able to discuss progress and share evidence of learning. Our goal is to have 100% in attendance! The direct link for signing up is - http://www.tinyurl.com/hhconferences

Hickory Hill Elementary practices Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS). This system has a continuum of positive behavior support for all students implemented in the classroom and non-classroom settings. Hickory Hill has three major behavioral expectations: Be Safe, Be Responsible, Be Respectful. We use common language to support positive behaviors across the building. If your student comes home wearing a blue bracelet, be sure to ask them what positive behaviors they were displaying to earn a blue bracelet. Praise them for the positive behavior that they displayed here at school to earn a blue bracelet.

Thank you very much to the parents that helped with walking club on Tuesday morning. It was a great help so that Mr. Imig and Mr. Lowe could take part in the staff picture. Your time and effort is greatly appreciated. We know you were taking time out of your busy day to help the school and we want to thank you for that. Thanks for all your help and support! - Mr. Imig and Mr. Lowe

Have a great weekend!

Mr. Guthmiller

NEW Yogurt Option at Lunch This Year!
We will be introducing a new menu option this year.  Students will be able to choose between the regular entrée and yogurt each day.  This new yogurt option will be available to grades 1st through 6th. Students will be asked to make their selection in the morning when the lunch count is taken. We know that students will enjoy this additional choice!
 
Here are some things you will want to know:
·         This new yogurt option is available to 1st through 6th grades. 
·         Kindergarten students will   continue to be offered the regular menu entrée item.
·         Yogurt will always be served with a cheese stick and a grain item.
·         Students choosing yogurt will also receive the fruits, vegetables and milk on the menu.
·         The price of the yogurt menu is the same as the regular menu price.
