Principal's Message

Welcome back, we hope that everyone enjoyed fall break. As a reminder, on Saturday November 14 report cards will post to the Parent Portal. Additionally, Parent Teacher Conferences will be held virtually on November 23 and 24. If you have not yet signed up for a time please do so via the Parent Portal.


We encourage you to continue to support our Potter PTA. Even in these uncertain times they are always looking for new ways to provide for our students and staff. Please see our PTA section below for some upcoming fundraisers.


H & M Potter has signed up to be a part of the Kinsa FLUency program. FLUency is Kinsa’s school health program. For the past five years, FLUency has partnered with sponsors to provide parents free thermometers and a smartphone app to help detect and respond to spreading illnesses. See the flyer below for information on how to join. This is a completely voluntary program.


This year more than ever we are thankful for our amazing Potter Family, and we wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving.


Ms. Cimino and Mr. McShaffrey.

The Giving Tree

Each year our H & M Potter School Giving Tree helps to provide holiday assistance for those in need. This year our Giving Tree will look slightly different, but is needed just as much as ever! Rather than specific gifts we are asking that if you are interested in helping a family in need please send in a $5-$20 gift card to Walmart, Target, Amazon, 5 Below, or iTunes. This will help us to provide assistance to families while also maintaining safety guidelines. This community project has been a successful part of the school culture for many years, providing holiday gifts to Potter children.


All gift cards purchased should be returned to Potter’s Main Office or sent in with your child between November 23-December 11. Please label the dollar amount, and mark that your donation is for the Giving Tree. We are unable to accept monetary donations or donations of toys at this time. Thank you for continuing to support our families.
