Students in Action

Hastings Parent Group - Come Join!

Our next Hastings Parent Group Meeting is on Wednesday, November 6th at 6:30 in the Hastings Library. Childcare will be available and we would love to see you there! Our meetings consist of discussing school updates, making fundraising plans for the year, and deciding on events for our community. We are also looking to fill some cabinet seats in the 2020-2021 school year! Come to the meeting to learn all about the different opportunities OR reach out to the current president Shannon Valle at shannonvallee@gmail.com to learn more!

"Camp Hastings" - Volunteers Needed

We hope you can make this fun-filled family event on Friday, November 15th from 6:00-7:30 . Click HERE if you are able to volunteer your time or camping tent :-)

You and your family will have the opportunity to engage in the following activities:

  • S'more Making
  • Sight Word Fishing
  • Campfire Sing Alongs
  • Tent Making
  • Mystery Guest Readers
  • Scavenger Hunts
  • Book Recommendations
  • And More!

All students will go home with books AND the first 250 students will receive their own "Camp Hastings" backpack at the door. Additionally, the grade level with the highest attendance will get to check an extra book out from library class one week. Finally, we will have a school wide spirit day on Friday for students to dress as their favorite book character or bring their favorite book to school. We hope to see you on the 15th for some fun with books!
