ISTEP This Week

Please be sure your 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders are well rested and have a good breakfast for the ISTEP tests this week. Students will test from Monday-Thursday of this week. Being on time to school is essential on these days. Once we start a testing session, we cannot have any students enter the room. Thank you!

Calling all 5th Graders!

Now is your chance to think about joining 6th Grade Band! Packets were sent home this week with all 5th Graders that include everything you need to know to join band. The last page needs to be turned in to Miss Klear by Wednesday, March 12th. The tryout night is on March 13th. This is your chance to try any instrument you want! Contact Miss Klear (jklear@hanover.k12.in.us) if you have any questions.

Dismissal

If your children are car riders, please be sure that you are having them get into the car on the passenger side as they are picked up. We would prefer that students do not walk around the car for safety reasons.

Car riders should all be picked up at Lincoln through the pick-up line. We ask that you do not have your children walk across the street and get picked up there. The reason for this is, if for some reason, there was a miscommunication or you are running late, we wouldn't know that the children are waiting to be picked up. Thank you!
