School Messenger App & Safe Arrival

Hadfield will be implementing the District's new Safe Arrival attendance protocol effective Monday October 22nd. As with any new system, we expect that there may be a few issues that arise along the way. If you experience any issues please report them to the contacts listed in the attached letter.

Here are a few tips that will help make your transition to the new system easier.

1) By far the easiest way to interact with the new system is by downloading the app on your phone and signing up for an account.

2) If you are not an app user and prefer to use your computer signup and login at https://go.schoolmessenger.com/

3) The phone option is still available by calling the attendance line at school. There will be a menu there to transfer your call into the new system. You may however, want to use the direct number 1-866-490-7371. By dialing direct from a phone that is registered with the district, the system should recognize the number you are calling from and be able to quickly identify your children and allow you to confirm their absence.

Unity Day Wednesday October 24th - Wear Orange

Together against bullying. United for kindness, acceptance and inclusion.

“More than one of every five school-aged children report being bullied,” said Julie Hertzog, director of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, which sponsors Unity Day and founded National Bullying Prevention Month in 2006. “It’s important these students know they are not alone and that they have the right to feel safe. By joining together and wearing ORANGE on Unity Day, we can send the unified message that we care about student’s physical and emotional health and that bullying will no longer be accepted in this society.”

Want to unite against bullying? It's easy. Wear orange!

Hadfield Way

This year we are continuing to work on showing, “The Hadfield Way,” by Being Safe, Being Kind and Being Your Best! Students are also focusing on a different Social Emotional Learning area each month. For the month of September we wrapped up focusing on being a good listening and following directions. For the month of October, we are having students on being able to identify how they are feeling, in relation to the Zones of Regulation. Zones of Regulation is a tool to create universal language to help students express and identify emotions in themselves and their peers. Talk to your students at home about Zones of Regulation and identifying emotions, and see if they can tell you about how to stay or get back to the Green Zone, as well as what the other Zones are (blue, green, yellow and red). Lastly, be on the lookout for upcoming events to help build our Hadfield Community!

A Message from Mrs. Crevcoure

Hey Huskies! This is Mrs. Crevcoure from PhyEd! Each month I will be sharing out a D.E.A.M. (Drop Everything and Move) checklist with an activity to complete outside of school for each day of the month. Remember all the amazing benefits of physical activity, like it increases the endorphins in your body that make you happy! So drop everything and move!

Waukesha Public Library Fall/Winter Programs

Click here to see all the program offerings

Waukesha County Dental Clinic

Hadfield second and third graders are invited to take advantage of a free dental program offered by the Waukesha County Community Dental Clinic.

This program is designed to provide dental examinations, decay prevention (fluoride varnish), dental sealants if needed, and education about keeping teeth and gums healthy. Sealants are a tooth ­colored, plastic­like material that has been proven to be very effective in protecting teeth from decay (cavities). They are placed only on the chewing surfaces of back teeth (molars), but are not put on teeth that already have cavities.

The program will take place at school on Friday November 2nd. and all second and third graders are invited to participate. Dental hygienists from the Waukesha County Community Clinic will talk with students about the program and about keeping their smiles healthy on October 15th. They will then send home permission forms.

Meeting the Needs of Students with Disabilities

See the link for more information about a program sponsored by Parents United on Tuesday October 16th at Ingleside Hotel, formerly Country Springs Hotel, from 6:00pm - 8:30pm.

Vision Screening

Vision screening of all 4K, second and fourth grade students took place on Tuesday, October 9th. A big thank you to the volunteers from the Waukesha Noon Lions Club for conducting the screening, and to parent volunteers Danielle Anzaldua and Jennifer Love for helping out.

Counseling Corner - Mr. White

This month the School Counseling Social & Emotional Learning (SEL) lesson addressed bully prevention techniques. These include when to approach an adult, use of I-messages and assertiveness skills. Students worked to identify behaviors that constitute bully behavior, how to handle these situations and when to seek assistance. The school counselor provides an activity done in class to further learning. Ask your student about this activity and the things they’ve learned from it.

Costume Wellness Walk

Hadfield School will be continuing the long-standing tradition of the Costume Wellness Walk on Wednesday, October 31st at 3:00pm.

Hadfield Students will walk north on Oakland Avenue and head west on Linden Street, circling the block twice. Hadfield families and community neighbors are welcome to attend this annual event.
