Hawk Squawk 11/5/20
It's November already! Our theme for the month is gratitude; in SEL lessons, students will be discussing ways they are grateful.
I am grateful for all of you! Thank you for attending our parent teacher conferences this week. I hope that you were provided valuable insight into your child's progress thus far this year. Thank you for your continued partnership supporting all of our students at Hallinan.
To better assist our young learners and staff, we are adjusting our weekly schedule which you can find here. As you may have read yesterday, starting, November 18, Wednesdays will be multi-synchronous days, which will consist of a blend of some live online time with teachers and staff and some offline time. This will allow students time to have structured connection and review with their teachers, practice skills and receive reteaching with teachers and support staff and build relationships with their peers. This change is intended to provide additional support, reduce screen stress and allow catch up time. Participation is expected and attendance will be taken as usual.
The schedule for elementary students’ lessons for Music, PE or STEM is expected to remain the same, but if changes are necessary, we will provide you with updated information next week. We recognize that this is yet another adaption in a year of change and we thank you for your support and flexibility.
To continue to get to know each other, I am happy to announce the date of our next HAL Hangout, Friday, November 13. Feel free to ask me what I was thinking - maybe I am just throwing caution to the wind. Let's put a positive spin on Friday the 13th. Seeing your children will definitely make my day! K-2 will meet from 11:30 am to 12 pm, and 3-5 will meet from 12 to 12:30 pm. Students are encouraged to bring their lunch and eat while we learn more about each other. Zoom meeting invitations will be sent next Tuesday, November 10, to parents and 3rd-5th grade student email addresses. Looking forward to seeing your students there!
