Hometown School Newsletter
April 12th, 2022
Our staff at Hometown would like to wish all celebrating Easter this weekend a blessed holiday. Please remember there is no school on Friday, April 15th and Monday, April 18th.
April Is Autism Awareness Month
Autism Spectrum Disorder is a complex, lifelong developmental condition that typically appears during early childhood and can impact a person’s social skills, communication, relationships, and self-regulation. The Autism experience is different for everyone. It is defined by a certain set of behaviors and is often referred to as a “spectrum condition” that affects people differently and to varying degrees.
While there is currently no known single cause of Autism, early diagnosis helps a person receive resources that can support the choices and opportunities needed to live fully.
For addition resources please visit autismspeaks.org.
Please remember spring pictures are tomorrow, April 13th. Proofs will come home to you for ordering. If you have not turned in the sibling form, you will NOT get sibling pictures.
*Avoid wearing Green.
If PM preK is having sibling photos, they will have to come at 8:45am.

Teacher Spotlight: Mrs. Rebecca Hemminger
How long and what grades have you taught?
I have taught for 23 years music and chorus! I have one year of experience in high school and 2 years of experience in middle school. So, most of my experience is in elementary school.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why?
I would travel to Hawaii again. I have been there twice and just love the perfect climate, gorgeous flowers, and beautiful song birds. Then I would travel to Quebec. That was where my honeymoon was and we also love the culture and history there.
What is the best thing about working at Hometown?
The best thing about working at Hometown is that I get to sing and make music with children every day! I love them so much!
What is your favorite food?
My favorite food is pizza and salads of all kinds. I also love Mediterranean food from lamb to tabbouleh and couscous!
Who is someone you admire and why?
Someone I admire is my mom. Even through her trials and handicaps, she is still filled with joy and peace. She has instilled in me perseverance, hope and a strong faith and commitment to God.
If you see Mrs. Hemminger around the school make sure you say hello!!
