Celebrating Students

End of Year Events!

Summer break isn't just about getting a few months off of school; it's about getting outdoors and enjoying the extra time with friends and family! To help you and your family get started, the HHASD Wellness Committee put together a FUN and EXCITING Summer Bingo card! This is a fun activity for both the child and parent(s) to take part in while being active both mentally and physically. Print off and turn in your completed bingo sheet to Mr. Heinritz on the night of orientation for your special prize! The best part? You'll also be entered into the drawing to win a $25 gift card to Sky Zone Trampoline Park!! BINGO!

The 2018/19 PSB elected to hold the first meeting in August, which means I will be selecting the 2019/20 PSB committee on July 8th in order to provide everyone with enough notice to participate in the meeting on August 13th. If you are interested, please submit your interest as soon as possible.


In August, I will provide a brief safety update, and in October, Deputy Sheriff Christopher Parkinson will be present to answer any questions parents may have.

Summertime Social Skills

Do you want to increase your child’s social skills this summer? Here’s a list of activity ideas that you can practice with your child that may assist them with feeling comfortable talking to others. You can choose a skill for your child or let them make the choice independently. The key to developing good social skills starts with modeling this behavior. Your child might not feel comfortable with choosing their own words but continue to encourage them and assist them whenever possible.


ACTIVITY IDEAS THAT CAN BE PRACTICED

AT HOME ON THE PHONE OR IN THE COMMUNITY


  • Order a pizza for the family

  • Call a store and check if an item is in stock

  • Go to a stores service desk to return an item

  • Call a store to find out what time they close
