Hanawalt T-shirts

Each year, the Hanawalt Community designs and orders a Hanwalt t-shirt for each student and staff. They are given to students to wear on the day of the Block Party -- which is tomorrow!

Fall Clubs for Second - Fifth Grade

Here are some picture from our clubs! We will have clubs again in October.

Drop Off and Pick Up

During drop off, please drive down to 51st Street. Do not turn around on Robertson Drive, 56th Street, or turnaround in the parking lot. It is not safe. By following the flow of traffic, all people remain safe.

Registering for OneRun

The 3rd annual District-wide OneRun fundraiser will be held at the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden on Saturday, September 24th, with check-in between 8:00-8:45 a.m. The event is a 2-mile fun run/walk with an option to cheer on the sidelines as a supporter! Registration is free for everyone; participation is what will count.

Event fees will be paid by corporate and individual sponsors. Once participation totals are tallied, the money raised will be sent directly to the schools. Each participant may designate one school. The more participants and donations, the more money to the schools!

Hanawalt Community Notes

See you Tomorrow for the Annual Hanawalt Block Party!

Get excited for the annual Hanawalt Block Party, a family friendly event for the entire Hanawalt community! Free food, fun, and games for all. It’s from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at the school. We will be giving all of the kids a free Hanawalt t-shirt and selling other school merchandise! You can also join our 50/50 raffle and donate to vote for which school staff member has to eat a giant snow cone! Don’t miss out.

Don’t Forgot to Stop By the Book Fair

During the block party, a book fair will be set up in the school. Make sure to visit and get new books for a new school year.
