Hemmenway Elementary - October 2021 Edition

A Note from the Principal

Dear Hemmenway Families,

The fall weather is finally here...sort of! Of course, after the heat we had this summer, any cool down is welcomed! As we wrap up our first full month of school, I'm looking forward to a semester of fun-filled learning, exciting parent events, and Hemmenway magic! As I always say, thank you for your continued support of both our students and staff. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us so that we ensure your child(ren) are safe, successful and supported!


Sincerely,

Dr. Silliman

Principal

Student Labels

Please be sure you label your student's items. This would include lunch boxes, jackets, backpacks etc. We have over 1100 students in the building, so if an item goes missing and is found, it is very helpful to have a name to locate its owner.

Pop-Its / Toys At School

Please make sure your students keep all toys, including pop its at home, unless they have been given special permission by their teacher and/or administration. These fidget toys, although meant to help with attention and distractibility, have become an issue in the classrooms. Students are fighting over them, not focusing on lessons, and taking advantage of the initial intention of the item.

Friday Lunch Visitors

Due to the overwhelming number of lunch visitors, we will be implementing a monthly lunch signup sheet. If you would like to have lunch with your student, please fill out the attached form. We ask that you only sign up for 2 days a month to allow other parents an opportunity to visit with their student. The form will also ask you to input your driver’s license or ID number in order to expedite the sign-in process.
