A Note from Ms. Moulton
We have had a wonderful first week of school! Students and teachers returned ready to learn and to teach! Just this morning I was talking to a student about one particular teacher and he said, "She's a great teacher. Well, actually all of the teachers at Hosmer are great." This is truly a special place.
Included in this newsletter is important information regarding the I-Ready assessment, which is currently being administered in grades 1-5. I hope you will take a moment to read the attached letter about it.
Please also note the upcoming events, including this week's PTO meeting on Tuesday and the Welcome Picnic on Wednesday. I hope to see many of you there!
Getting Ready for I-Ready
Drop and Go Zone
- Pull all the way to the front of the zone marked with white lines.
- Remain in your car. Staff will help children out of the car.
- When pulling out, please wait for the car in front of you to pull out.
If you do not choose to use this option, please do not park your car in the Drop and Go Zone.
No Dogs on Campus (except the Hosmer Husky, of course!)
