Hermann Elementary Bearcat Bulletin

Learn. Lead. Grow. Succeed. Together!

May 6, 2019

The month of May has begun and spring fever is here! This has been an incredibly fast school year! When you read this, your student will have 13 days of school left! I encourage you to look at all of the growth your child has made this year. His feet may have grown 2 sizes. Her brand new school pants may now be too short. This kind of growth is what is the most noticeable to us. However, so much growth happens during a school year. He can now count to 100. She can read books beyond her grade level. He knows more math facts. Her vocabulary includes 30 plus new words. They planned, organized, and led students through celebrations and assemblies! Elementary school teachers and students are amazing! They continually inspire me with what they accomplish in 9 short months. Thank you for sharing your child's growth with me this year!


Online registration for all returning students for next year is now OPEN!! Yippee--no more paper packets!!! ALL STUDENTS MUST REGISTER ONLINE IN ORDER TO BE ASSIGNED TO A CLASSROOM! No more paper registration packets will be used. To begin the online registration process, log onto the parent portal. (If you do not have a password, please contact the Technology Department, 573 486-2116, ext 1314) The online registration link is on the bottom left corner of the screen. Chromebooks will be available in our office for people that need access to technology.

All students with completed registration by Wednesday, May 15 will be treated to popcorn at HES! Again, in order to be assigned to a classroom/teacher, you must complete your child's online registration. Teacher letters will be passed out later in July to all students who are registered!


Our last day of student attendance is Wednesday, May 22. Report cards will be sent home by mail soon after school is dismissed for the summer. Please make sure to take care of any over-due lunch balances, fees, and/or missing library books. Final report cards will not be mailed to any students with any negative balances.

The Hermann Public Library has a wonderful summer reading program planned for all ages. Please support this program and your child's love for reading this summer. Visit the Hermann Public Library for more information!

Summer School

Summer School will be held at Hermann Elementary this year! Free breakfast and lunch are available during the summer school session. Summer school offers a wonderful opportunity for student enrichment and growth. It is also a great way for students to strengthen or maintain their current skill level. The summer school session will start on May 28 and ends on June 21. The hours will be from 7:45 AM to 3:45 PM, Tuesdays through Fridays. An application for summer school and enrollment information can be printed from the district website, www.hermann.k12.mo.us, or picked up at any of the school offices. Questions regarding summer school can be directed to Maranda Anderson at 573 486-2116, ext.1306.
