International Walk to School Day!

Wednesday, October 2nd is International Walk to School Day! We invite you and your children to join us by walking to school on the 2nd! If you don't live close enough to school, park at a friends or park at Roche Bros and walk to Hastings! We will be waiting at school to greet students, and will have a special banner for all walkers to sign. If it rains on October 2nd, walk to school day will be on Friday, October 4th. Check out the flyer for more information about this fun event!

Hastings Parent Group

The Hastings Parent Group (HPG) is an organization made up parent volunteers and an elected board. The parent group serves as a vehicle for communication, service, and parental involvement with Hastings Elementary School. The HPG works with the school administration and staff to support the Hastings community. They raise funds for enrichment and coordinate volunteers for school wide events! We would love to have you join us! The first HPG meeting is Thursday, October 3rd at 6:30 in the Hastings Library. Babysitting is available. We hope to see you there!

Important Reminders

  • The temperature this time of year is a bit of a roller coaster! As we move into cooler days, please remember to label all clothings and belongings with your child's name to help us get it back in an event that it is lost.

  • In school we have been focusing on bus safety! Our school counselor, Ms. Doretti, has been doing lessons with students. Each bus will also practice bus evacuation procedures. Every child can do their part to be safe on the bus by always staying seated when the bus is in motion.
