Important! Beginning of the Year Forms

It is very important for each family to complete online paperwork at the start of a new school year. The paperwork includes updating contact information and signing off on important permissions for the school year. Please visit Power School Parent Portal as soon as possible! If needed, here is a link for directions on how to access and sign-on. Contact the Hastings office at 508-836-7750 if you have any questions. It would be great to have families complete this by Friday, September 27th!

Students in Action - Specials Fun!

I love visiting all classrooms! This week I spent some time in music, art, library, and P.E. Our specialists are amazing at creating engaging lessons and hands-on activities for students! Students were shining as they painted, learned musical notes, rode scooters in straight and diagonal lines, and chose books in the library!

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. Check out the flyer for more information about this fun event!

Book Drive!

Hastings Elementary School is collecting gently used children’s books to distribute

to students at an upcoming family literacy night event for the whole school. Donation bins will be set up in the school lobby starting Monday, September 23rd, and we are welcoming contributions through Friday, October 18th.

Thank you in advance for your support of Hastings! And be sure to SAVE THE DATE for our first "Camp Hastings" family literacy night on Friday, November 15th from 6:00-7:30!


Thank You!

Thank you to the Hastings Parent Group, and all of the families who volunteered, donated, and participated in the Back to School BBQ! It was the perfect way to kick off the school year as a Hastings Community! We are excited to join together for more family fun-filled events this year!
