Bulldog Bulletin

Hall-Dale Elementary Newsletter, Vol. I - September 24, 2018

Letter from the Principal

We are off to an amazing start of the school year! Students have been busy learning the school expectations in the classrooms and in all of the common areas of our school. These are known as our Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). As a school community, we focus on four main values. They are honesty, kindness, respect and responsibility. I am so very impressed with the children at HDES. Every day I observe children being kind to each other and trying to do their very best. You should be proud!

In an effort to increase communication between home and school, I will be sending out this Bulldog Bulletin monthly. I hope you enjoy it!

Construction Alert!

Starting Monday, September 24, construction will be happening on the concrete in the main entrance area of our school. Please take caution and walk around the blocked off area when entering and exiting via the main entrance. Construction will halt during arrival and dismissal so the main entrance will be open at those times. It will take a couple of weeks to complete the necessary concrete work, so please be patient. Thank you!

Stay in touch...

Check out the RSU #2 Hall-Dale Elementary website for updated events taking place at our school. We will also be posting our monthly newsletters here!
