Hadfield School

December 6, 2020

Message from Mr. Elliott

Hello Hadfield Families!


I can't believe it is already December. We have been fortunate so far that we've had some nice weather...I'm sure it will snow soon, but we'll take it for now. If you haven't noticed yet we have new basketball hoops and some new 4-square courts on our playground and our students love playing outside at recess. Remember to wear hats, gloves or mittens and coats to stay warm.


Typically this month brings us our winter concert. Unfortunately that will look different this year, but Ms. Miller, our awesome music teacher, has been making some videos for each grade level that the students will be able to share with you. They have been working on rhythms and playing along with some popular songs.


While we don't have a concert we do have a FREE book fair sponsored by the United Way and Scholastic! Each of our students will be able to select and bring home five free books over the next few weeks. It's an excellent opportunity for our school community.


As always, thanks for all the support you give our teachers and your children. Keep communicating with Mrs. Roth and our teachers. We all know this is an unusual year, and I'm proud to say that we are making the most of it. Remember that winter break begins soon and our last day of school is Dec. 22.


Have a fantastic December and please stay safe and healthy.


Picture Retake Day - December 8th

Picture Retake Day is Tuesday December 8th. If your child was not present for the original picture day on November 11th they will have their picture taken on December 8th. If your child was photographed on November 11th and you are not satisfied with your pictures send them back to school with your child on retake day. They will replace the same picture package with the new pictures. Please contact the office if you want your child's picture retaken.


Virtual and eAchieve students are invited to have their pictures taken between 10:30am-11:30am. Your child will have their temperature taken and be escorted into the building for their picture; parents are asked to remain outside.

4K 2021-2022 School Year

Registration for the 2021-2022 4K school year starts December 1st. If you have a child that will be 4 years old before September 1, 2021 they are eligible to attend 4K with the School District of Waukesha. The 4K program is a lottery process so your child will not automatically be enrolled at Hadfield just because you are in the Hadfield attendance. It is important to enroll them now as our 4K program has limited enrollment. See the graphic below for more details. Hadfield will be holding an enrollment event by appointment only on Saturday December 19th. If you have any questions about 4K please call the Hadfield office at 262-970-1505.
