April 2019

Message from Hansen Elementary

Dear Parents,

Greetings! The 2018 – 2019 school year is passing quickly and May is a very, very busy month.

The Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA) has begun and will conclude on May 30. Good luck 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders.

The Hansen Alternative Program International Night is Friday, May 3. Bring a dish to share. Plenty of good eats and great entertainment.

Teacher Appreciation Week is May 6 through May 10. Thanks to our Hansen teaching staff for the wonderful job they do each and every day with kids. Take a moment to pass on kind thoughts and words to your child’s teacher when you see them.

The 23rd annual Muffins for Mom will Friday, May 10 at 7:15 am. The turnout will be incredible. Get to the cafeteria early for the best selection of muffins. Arrive early for a good parking place.

Hansen Field Day is Friday, May 31. It’s a very fun day for kids. Please make sure your child wears appropriate footwear for a day outside.

As the weather continues to be cool one day and warm the next, our lost and yet to be found collection of jackets, sweatshirts, and other belongings continues to grow larger by the day. Please remind your child that as they shed layers during playtime to please pick up their belongings when they go back to class.

Student classroom teacher placements for 2019 – 20 have begun. Classroom teacher placement is a decision made with a lot of thought and effort by teachers and staff at Hansen. Teachers work together to make up the best possible class lists for the coming school year. Teachers take many things into considerations when developing balanced class placements, such as: Behavior, academic performance, gender balance, and social dynamics. Changes to class rosters affect the school in many ways. Student classroom teacher placements should be considered final.

Lost and Found

Don’t forget to check the lost and found on a regular basis. Twice a year all unclaimed items are donated to charity. Come before it goes.

Important Note

Please send an extra set of clothes to school in your student’s backpack. With the wet weather, there is mud and our students do have recess outside wet or dry. We have no clothes at school to lend to students who come in wet and muddy. Thank you for helping to keep your student clean and dry.
