It's Pumpkin Time!

This year we are having a pumpkin character contest!

The children are invited to create a pumpkin of a book character to be displayed in the library.

In the past, these have been AMAZING!

We will be hosting a Family night for you to come see the display on Thursday, October 28th from 4:30-6:00. You are welcome to pick up your child's pumpkin that evening to share at your own home. On Friday, any pumpkins remaining will be discarded after offering for the children to be able to carry it home.

Teacher Pumpkin Auction!

The teachers are so creative and are getting in on the fun.

The teachers will choose their pumpkin characters. They may choose to work as a team or create individually.

Parents, let's compliment their hard work and provide an opportunity for you to win the pumpkin for your child to take home! What a great way to become the coolest parent ever and donate to the campus fundraiser!

The highest bidder for the teacher pumpkins will win the pumpkin for their child to take home on October 28th.

You will be able to come and view all of the pumpkins created by the teachers and students on Thursday, October 28th between 4:30-6:00.

We will have a LIVE Auction of the pumpkins for you to vote on and submit your bid. More details to follow.

If you cannot make it to campus, feel free to make a donation to the Facebook LIVE Auction.

Birthdays are celebrated at Hancock during lunch.

Our cafeteria is wonderful and offers the opportunity to purchase cookies or ice cream for the entire class for your child's birthday.

We celebrate your child's birthday at Hancock by:

  • Wishing them a Happy Birthday over the announcements. You should hear the cheering and clapping around the campus. It is so sweet.
  • We allow the birthday student to come to my office to select a birthday book.
  • We celebrate weekend and summer birthdays too.
  • Teachers may choose a different way to celebrate the birthday student in their class.

  • Goody bags-(NOT REQUIRED) that are brought to campus will be passed out to students at the end of the day. We ask that the items be safe for all children. Please check with your child's teacher for an updated class count.

If you would like to purchase the items for your child and their class, please talk to the cafeteria manager: Marisol Rodriguez at 281-897-4523. She will be happy to set you up on the day of your choosing.
