Principal's Message

Hathaway Community,

It is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great year at Hathaway! This year we will welcome all of our students back full time on campus to Hathaway.

As you know, the last year and a half have brought many dramatic changes to how Hathaway operates on a day-to-day basis. The coming year will be no different. The 2021-2022 school year will present many opportunities for growth, change and learning. Our staff will all be working extra hard to make this year be the best possible year for your children, our school and our community. Each of us are excited to have students returning to our campus and classrooms

Rest assured that one of our primary goals is to make every child feel safe, welcomed, connected and a part of the Hathaway family.

Please take a few moments to read and review some of the important information in our first newsletter for the 2021-2022 school year.
