September SPLASH

September News and Notes

Dear Hairgrove Families,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I am thrilled to be welcoming your children back to school! Our continued commitment to fostering our 8 Keys Of Excellence (Integrity, Failure Leads to Success, Speak With Good Purpose, This Is It, Commitment, Ownership, Flexibility, and Balance) will undoubtedly continue to help our students thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.


Our team will continue to embed critical thinking and collaboration across all content areas. We will also continue working diligently to meet the diverse needs of our students through small group instruction across all grade levels and emphasize meaningful, timely feedback to help students work towards academic mastery. All students in grades PK-5 will participate in Dive Into Learning which is an intervention time during the school day that is designed to meet their academic needs.


One of the greatest characteristics of the Hairgrove community is the genuine care and compassion shared between staff, students, and parents. Hairgrove Elementary is a place where staff and families come together to ensure that the children entrusted into our care grow to be productive, confident, compassionate, members of a global society.


I look forward to an amazing year!


Sincerely,

Michelle Lee

Library News

Hi Dolphin Families,


I'm Mrs. Anderson, your Hairgrove Librarian. We're putting the finishing touches on our brand-new library space! Students come to the library the same day each week for read alouds, check out, and fun maker activities. We have many brand new books in our library and students have been learning about book care so they know how to take care of the books they borrow. Ask your dolphin to share their library book with you and enjoy a fun storytime at home.


Happy Reading!

Mrs. Anderson

PE News

Hello Dolphins and Dolphin parents! It is a new school year filled with beautiful and exciting changes to our beloved Hairgrove campus! The gym has been renovated and is now in full working order. Just a few more adjustments and it will be finished. We also welcome our new Dolphin Coach Foster to our team!


Currently in PE classes, we are getting used to our new space and reviewing our classroom procedures. However, it is important that you are sending your student to school with a bottle of water or a container for water. Also, their PE days are on certain days every week. So please be aware of the days they need to wear gym shoes.


PE is a very fast paced and fun class. However, please talk to your student about the importance of staying in their own space and using listening ears while in large group. The classes are combined so there are more classmates in one space, and that can be challenging.


I am looking forward to a great new year in our beautiful new gym space. The kids are excited and delighted! It will be our best year yet!

NURSE HALEY'S NEWS:

The Coronavirus is still among us and cases are rising. The Delta variant is currently the predominant strain of COVID in the United States. This variant is highly contagious. Some data suggests that the variant might cause more severe illness than the other strains in unvaccinated persons. The greatest risk of transmission is among unvaccinated people. Fully vaccinated people can get breakthrough infections, either symptomatic or asymptomatic, and can transmit it to others. Even with breakthrough infections, vaccines are highly effective at preventing severe disease and death. In order to maximize protection from the variant and prevent the possibility of spreading it to others, it is recommended to wear a mask.

Reminders:

  • Self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms
    • Symptoms include:

      • Cough

      • Shortness of breath

      • Loss of taste/smell

      • Nasal congestion

      • Sore throat

      • Headache

      • Fever at or above 100°F

      • Vomiting/diarrhea


  • Please send extra clothes with your child if they are in Pre-K or Kindergarten. Accidents happen and we want to ensure the students have clean clothes to change into if an accident does occur.
