Cold Weather Reminder!

With the decreasing temperatures and arrival of winter weather, it is important to send your child to school with appropriate clothing for outdoor play. A jacket, hat, and gloves are recommended! It helps to have them labeled so we can return them to you in the event they are lost. We encourage outdoor play for our students when the real feel temperature is above 20 degrees. Thank you for your help in ensuring your children are prepared for recess!

McTeacher Night Returns!

Hastings Staff is taking over McDonalds and we hope to see you there! On Thursday, November 21st come to McDonalds at 166 East Main Street. The teachers will be behind the counter serving students from 5:00-7:00 PM. 100% of the proceeds will go to the Hastings Parent Group! Here's a flyer with more information! We hope to see you there!
