Students in Action!

It's been a wonderful week at Hastings. Mrs. Stanton and I have been able to visit classrooms and complete back to school lessons with our students. We talked about our jobs at school and reviewed what it looks like to be safe, be kind, take care of our school, and do our best! We brainstormed ways to do this in our classrooms, at lunch, at recess, in the hallways, and more! We were also able to read a story together about making new friends and practicing the golden rule! Below you will see some of the slides we used in our lesson with students as well as some action shots from the week. I can tell it is going to be a terrific year!

Open House!

You are invited to attend Hastings Open House on Thursday, September 19th from 6:30-7:30 with your family! Enjoy exploring the school, visiting your child's classroom, meeting Hastings staff, and chatting with other families. This year the Scholastic Book Fair will also be in the Cafeteria during Open House for families to browse and purchase books. Check out the invitation! We hope to see you there.

Back to School BBQ

Our HPG Back to School BBQ is THIS FRIDAY from 4:00-5:30! Check out the flyer for more information. It also includes a sign-up sheet for volunteers and donations. If you would like to drop supplies off before Friday you are more than welcome to bring them into the foyer and leave them with the office. Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you on Friday!
