Drop Off and Pick Up Reminders

K/1 Doors: Please do not block the driveway...especially at pick up. Please do not park in the driveway leading into the St Germaine parking lot. You must park in an actual spot.

2/3 Doors: Please be patient and wait in line when dropping off your students. Do not cut in front of another car so you can drop your child off.

4/5 Doors: Please do not pull up going Eastbound on 99th Street and walk your children across this very busy street. Pull up far enough if you want to watch your child until they get in the building. If you don't you will block everyone else trying to drop off their kids.

News from your Hannum PTA

Last week, we hosted our re-scheduled "My Guy and Me" Dance, themed "Red Carpet Sneaker Ball" in the Hannum gym on Friday. It was a wonderful time and beautifully done! HUGE THANK YOU to Raquel Habick, who donated all the balloons for the event and the red carpet and light up paparazzi decor AND arrived at the school at 3:10 (with paid assistants from her event planning business) to make sure it was all blown up, put up, and done in time! Thank you to Delecta Harris who also arrived very early to help Raquel set up and put in a bunch of extra planning time making sure we had a DJ and concessions as well! Thank you to Cherie Noisette (and family) for making and setting up the adorable handmade centerpieces! Thank you to Tom Killoran Photography who donated a photobooth so all the girls were able to take home a themed 3 photo strip of them with their special guy, and to Christal Shaffer for running the photobooth. Thank you to Lidia, Amanda Stone, and Brittany Arrington for making sure our concession stand ran smoothly! Thank you to Melinda McElrath (and extra helpers) for rushing over in the rain to make sure our dance guests had popcorn and also assisting in the concession stand. Thank you Jenny Kondrisack for rushing out to Emilio's Pizza to pick up our pizzas for the concession stand and for helping to make sure pizza distribution and gym clean up went well! Thank you to Emilio's Pizza as always for our pizza concessions. Thank you to Breanne Trusk (Paper Trail Flowers) for the beautiful corsages and your generous donation back to the PTA. Thank you to Sydney Russ and Ava Shaffer, some former Hannum girls who helped supervise photo stations. The night would not have been as successful without you all!

This week:

Our Father Son MIni-Golf Outing at Space Golf is this Tuesday evening! Takeshia Fields and Lauren Evitt have been planning and organizing this night for months now, and we have 90 registered golfers attending! T-shirts, for those who ordered them, will go out tomorrow (Monday). If you did not order a t-shirt, please wear a neon shirt. I am sure our Hannum dudes and their heroes are in for a great time, see you on Tuesday!

Next week:


We are issuing one final PRETTY PLEASE PLEASE for help with Teacher Appreciation Week, May 2-6. We have already ordered t-shirts for the whole Hannum staff to wear on Friday, and that has just about used up our entire existing budget for the week. We would also like to include some gifts and goodies throughout the week, including: breakfast on Monday, "open vending machine" style snacks and drinks Tuesday and Wednesday (based on teacher and staff self-reported favorites), lunch Thursday or Friday, assorted $5/$10 gift card raffles daily, and a gift basket raffle on Friday. If you are able to help purchase and set up any of the items requested for these days, please see details and sign up here. Thank you to Salina Lopez, Jenny Kondrisack, Scobey family, Rebecca Boyer, Craig Shaffer, Christal Shaffer, and Melissa Rosas for your sign ups so far! It is very much appreciated! If you are unable to donate an item, but would like to help us in purchasing lunch for the teachers, please go to this link to send a monetary donation, or send it in an envelope labeled "PTA TAW donation" with your child to school. Thank you to the Cotter Family and the Miranda Family for your donations.
