Give Us Your Feedback

We need your input on "What are the most important skills, experiences and habits students need to prepare them to be successful in learning and life?" To gather your feedback, we're using a tool called ThoughtExchange. All of our voices matter, so your participation is crucial and valued. Please click here to participate: https://tejoin.com/scroll/250535128. Your thoughts and stars are confidential. You can come back as often as you'd like to participate and, in fact, we ask that you do come back to star some of the new ideas shared since you first participated. The ratings will help us understand the most important areas to focus on.

From Mrs Malloy our Nurse

Please pick up unused medication. The school is not able to store medication over the summer. Please pick up your child’s medication on or before Thursday, June 2nd. If the school does not receive communication from you by the above date, the medication will be discarded.

New Medication Authorization forms must be completed each school year in order for your child to have medication in school (attached). Please have these forms completed and bring/send these completed forms to school with your child’s medication by the first day of student attendance.

The forms can be completed any date after the current school year ends.

Please call the school nurse, Maureen Malloy, RN 708-952-7897 or email mmalloy@d123.org if you have any questions. Thank you for your cooperation.

4th and 5th Grade Dismissal

Even though this has been a wet and rather chilly spring, it is time for our 4th and 5th grade students to meet younger siblings at their doors from the outside. Your older students should not be going through the school to be dismissed with their younger siblings. We have been running into issues at dismissal, with our older students playing around in the hallways. Our teachers have enough on their minds getting K-2 students out the door and with their correct guardian. 4th and 5th grade students will now be dismissed by their classroom teacher at the door on 99th Street and will walk to the younger siblings exit door by going around the building. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Join us for our Growth Parade!

Students are working on posters either at home or at school to share what they are proud of this year! We have learned so much this school year and with everything our students have been through the past couple of years, it is time to CELEBRATE! We will have our 1st Annual Growth Parade around Hannum School! Parents are more than welcome to come. It starts at 2:00 on May 25th. There is rain in the forecast, but possibly by 2:00 it will have moved on. If it rains, then the students will parade around the gym with parents in the middle.

5th Grade Parents

The 5th Grade medical requirement forms were sent home recently. Please be sure to look for them and have them completed as soon as possible. You may return the forms to Hannum as long as they are completed before the school year ends. Please contact Mrs Malloy if you do not receive them. Her extension is 7897

We brought in $5585 surpassing the goal of $3500. It wouldn’t have been possible without all the wonderful shoppers that support our school. We couldn’t have done it without you. THANK YOU!
