We Shine at Hyman Fine!

Blue Pride Starts Here!

Dear Hyman Fine Families,

It is so hard for me to imagine making it through January without snow impact on our learning. If you haven't done so already please be sure to downloaded the APS App, this is one way you'll find out about delays and cancellations. Directions at the bottom of this newsletter.

Valentine's Day Classroom Celebrations - Classrooms may celebrate Valentine's Day. In keeping with the HFES food and allergy policies we ask you please do do not send in candy.

Winter Season: With the cold weather upon us, please make sure your child is is properly dressed for outdoor recess. Also, please make sure your child has a ChapStick/lip balm in their backpack, as chapped lips are abundant during this time.


30February 3: Book Fair - Please find the class schedule below.


1 - Bingo Night


Have a great week,

Noah Collins

More information is forthcoming.

In addition to downloading the app, guardians will need to set up their accounts. This can be done by going to the link contained in the email sent to all guardians yesterday (and following the directions)

If you haven’t already done so, please download the APS app designed for mobile devices.
