Hamline Family Newsletter

September 21-25, 2020

A Note From Principal Reilly

We made it through week two and I have been amazed at the resiliency our community has shown. Though not how we would want to educate children and partner with families, I want to assure you that we remain committed to bringing your children the best education possible. We have all had to lean on one another to solve problems, and I want you to know that we are always here to support you in your Distance Learning needs.

Below there are many resources for you to click on to find answers, and you can always go to our webpage, https://www.spps.org/hamline to fill out a form(highlighted in yellow at the top of page), telling us what you need. We look through this form everyday and will reach out quickly. Please send us pictures of your children engaged in their work. We would love to post them in upcoming newsletters.

We appreciate your patience and grace as we all do our best to make the most out of this unique time. As always, thank you for sharing and trusting your children with us. It is a privilege we do not take for granted.

About Hamline Elementary

Hamline Elementary is a racially, culturally, and economically diverse community of learners in the heart of Saint Paul's Hamline Midway neighborhood. Our families come from many Saint Paul communities and from all over the world. Our talented and spirited staff bring decades of experience to the classroom; they also bring kind, generous, and joyful hearts. Specialists in physical education, and science create engaging opportunties for discovery and self-expression. And from the front office, to the cafeteria, to everywhere in between, Hamline is positively filled with caring adults and good vibes.


Inquiry Corner

"Inquiry Based Learning" is a style of teaching that draws from student's natural curiosity. Kids are full of wonderings and questions, and our goal is to help guide those so students can take charge of their own learning. We try to develop students' questioning, thinking, and problem solving skills so that they can be lifelong learners and not dependent on others. Each newsletter in the Inquiry Corner we will have information and updates on the great things students are doing at Hamline Elementary!


Reminder to fill out the annual iUpdate student form at Campus Parent. It is important we have updated contact information so you will receive update from the school. If you need any help with your login or password, email karen.azen@spps.org or leave a message at 651-744-4287.
