From the principal


Thank you all for joining us at the Open House! We love having you in the hallways, in our classrooms, and visiting our animals. A HUGE thank you to the Long family for making us such a delicious meal! I hope you had the opportunity to visit the many community resource tables in the gym. If not, please read on to learn more about our 7(!!) 4H clubs and more!


We are looking for a before/after school care coordinator. If you know an organized individual with energy and interest, please send them our way!



Here is reading of the poem "Kindness" by Naomi Shihab Nye. Take a moment if you please to listen and reflect. Kindness and goodwill are such important and growable traits for our students and ourselves. They help us include others, care for others, and nurture a strong, supportive community.


Hawlemont District is building a strategic plan! Help us start the process by filling out this survey. Your input is invaluable. Thank you in advance.
