Hall-Dale Elementary Newsletter - October 10th, 2019
This year we will continue to implement the PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports) framework throughout the school. This is a process for creating school environments that are more predictable and effective for achieving academic and social goals. A key strategy of the PBIS system is prevention. The majority of students follow the school's expectations, but are never acknowledged for their positive behavior. Through instruction, discussion, and regular practice, all teachers and staff members will use a consistent set of behavior expectations and rules. Be on the look out for a PBIS Parent Brochure, which will be sent home next week!
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!
Looking for a way to contribute to HDES?

A Note from Nurse Beale
With the flu season creeping up on us, this is just a quick reminder to keep your child home when he/she is sick. Your child may return to school when he/she is free from vomiting, diarrhea, or fever for 24 hours. He/she must be fever free for 24 hours without the aid of medicine before they can return to school. If you have any questions feel free to contact the school nurse.
Our Annual Flu Clinic is scheduled for November 6th.
Mrs. Clark was presented with a $700 donation for our school from Mrs. Donna Gilbert today! The donation comes from Mrs. Gilbert's Hallowell High School Class of 1959, and the class president, Mr. William Webb. This wonderful gesture reflects their appreciation for the education that the class received through the Hallowell (now Hall-Dale) school system.
Thank you to the Hallowell High School Class of 1959!!!
Mark your calendars for HDES Craft and Vendor Fair!

Secure online process ensures no one see's any of your information other than the Food Service Director. And you no longer have to send the form in to school with your child, ensuring security and privacy. If you need help or access to a computer, please let me know and I will be happy to help you.
