From the Principal

HAC opens tomorrow at 8:00 am for teacher assignments. I know this is a much anticipated day that comes with a lot of excitement! Teams of teachers, specialists and myself have spent hours putting together class lists. We are thoughtful in this process as our goal is for your child to have the best school year possible. I know there are times where families have a specific teacher in mind, and your child might not be placed with that teacher. Please understand the amount of work and intentionality that goes into building these class lists. Because of this, I will not be making classroom changes. The Ferson staff is amazing, capable, and here for your children. I am fully confident in their ability to support your child and help them grow this year.

I am looking forward to seeing you all next week for Welcome Back Day and on Monday, August 14th for the first day of school. The 2023-2024 school year is going to be awesome!

Have a great day,

Kristy McKnight

Welcome Back Day

We are so excited to welcome students back for the first day of school on Monday, August 14th!

All students are invited to drop off school supplies and to meet classroom teachers on Thursday, August 10th from 4:00-6:00 pm. PTO is making this a true welcome event with food trucks from The Cilantro Grill, Dave's Slow Food and Kona Ice!

I encourage you to follow this schedule:

  • 4:00-5:00 pm - Last names beginning with A - I
  • 4:30-5:30 pm - Last names beginning with J - Q
  • 5:00-6:00 pm - Last names beginning with R - Z

This will assist us in meeting your needs in a timely manner and should cut down on the crowds in classrooms, as well as congestion in our parking lot. However, please understand you are welcome to come anytime between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm.

Looking forward to seeing everyone on the 10th!

Kristy McKnight
