Hanawalt Community Notes

Show Your Teacher Appreciation!

Next Friday, we are hosting the annual Teacher Appreciation Holiday Party. Thank you for considering a donation at such a busy time of year! We need a few items to round out the menu for the event for our amazing teachers and staff! Please consider donating an item or making a cash donation to help offset the extras we are purchasing for the party.

Help Plan Party in the Park

Last May was our inaugural Party in the Park cultural celebration at Frisbee Park. It was such a great success that we’re doing it again! Sign up now to help us plan this great event: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090445adac2c7-20222023


Thank you to everyone who helped ALL Hanawalt Hawks have cold weather gear this winter! If you haven’t already, you can still bring your new or gently used cold weather gear to the front office any time. Boots and snow pants are needed the most!

Note: Donations will be used by Hanawalt students. Please make sure all donations are in great shape, clean, and playground ready.
