Happy Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week

Please take a moment this week to thank your child's teacher for everything they have done for your child this year. It is never an easy job, but after 3 years dealing with a pandemic it is that much more stressful and exhausting. We have the best of the best and I am so proud of how they have shown up day in and day out for our kids.

Late Spring Concert (4th and 5th Grade)

It's our 4th and 5th graders turn to get on the stage to perform fo you! Our Late Spring Concert will be Friday May 13th at 1:30pm. Doors will open about 1:15. If your child will be performing next Friday, please make sure you turn in your early dismissal form no later than Thursday May 12th, if you want to take your children home early that day.

4th and 5th Grade Dismissal

Even though this has been a wet and rather chilly spring, it is time for our 4th and 5th grade students to meet younger siblings at their doors from the outside. Your older students should not be going through the school to be dismissed with their younger siblings. We have been running into issues at dismissal, with our older students playing around in the hallways. Our teachers have enough on their minds getting K-2 students out the door and with their correct guardian. 4th and 5th grade students will now be dismissed by their classroom teacher at the door on 99th Street and will walk to the younger siblings exit door by going around the building. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

5th Grade Parents

The 5th Grade medical requirement forms were sent home recently. Please be sure to look for them and have them completed as soon as possible. You may return the forms to Hannum as long as they are completed before the school year ends. Please contact Mrs Malloy if you do not receive them. Her extension is 7897

2/3 Doors: Please be patient and wait in line when dropping off your students. Do not cut in front of another car so you can drop your child off.


4/5 Doors: Please do not pull up going Eastbound on 99th Street and walk your children across this very busy street. Pull up far enough if you want to watch your child until they get in the building. If you don't you will block everyone else trying to drop off their kids.
