THOUGHTS FROM MRS. SHOCK...

Hello Huron Families,


As I was driving my son to school this morning he said, "Wow, I think this year is going fast!" I then asked him why he thought that and he replied, "It's already the third month of school!" As we finished our ride to school, he had me thinking (funny how our kids always get us thinking) this year is going by fast! In just a few short weeks it will be Thanksgiving!


I always try to reflect on the things I am grateful for, however, I tend to think about it the most in November preceding the Thanksgiving holiday. Although, I am very well aware that unfortunately life is not 100% back to normal as we still navigate through the pandemic, I am grateful that each day an amazing staff comes to Huron to work with our students and that we are fortunate to have our students here in our school learning. I am thankful for the support of our parents and the Huron community.


We continue to be short staffed in several areas. I am looking for a crossing guard and a SACC aide. If your student attends Huron and you would like to work as a SACC aide the district has waived the hourly fee if your child needs to come to work with you in our SACC program. To apply for any of the open positions please go to www.chippewavalleyschools.org and click on the employment tab. The positions are imperative to our school environment, please consider applying. If you have any questions please feel free to call our school office for more information.


We recently had our first PBIS assembly of the school year. At this assembly we reviewed our Husky Howls:


  • H - Have an I can attitude
  • O - Own your actions
  • W - Work together nicely with others
  • L - Live respectfully
  • S - Stay safe


We review these expectations at school regularly and ask that students follow them.


We want to thank our Huron PTO! They worked very hard to put on our annual Trunk or Treat event, which was a huge success and we had a great turn out! Our generous PTO purchased treats that we were able to distribute to all of our students last week during our Halloween celebrations. Additionally, they held a virtual book fair that allowed students to purchase books and we sold so many books our students have earned a pajama day this Friday, November 5th! They have been very busy this month supporting our Huron community and we appreciate them!


Have a great November! Take Care!

WHEN YOU RECEIVE A CALL FROM THE SCHOOL...

Please wait a few minutes to see if there is a voice message for you. Staff will ALWAYS leave a message for you and with some cell phones, it may take a few minutes for a message to reach your phone.


We have 65+ phones in our building and all will show the 'main line' as the phone number that called you. We really have no way of tracking where that call came from and who may have called you. By waiting a few minutes, that message will usually answer the questions and concerns that you have.


Thank you for your help and patience!

LOST AND FOUND

We have LOT of 'lost' items in our Lost and Found area in the cafeteria. If your child is missing an item or 2, please have them check there while they are in their lunch period. We always hope that these items will make their way back to their owner!


A suggestion to all families to help us return items to the right kids - please label all lunch boxes (inside and out), backpacks (inside and out), coats, clothing (that they may remove during the day like sweatshirts or sweaters).

CALLING OUR ATTENDANCE LINE

When calling our attendance line (586-723-5899), please call before 8:45am if your child is going to be late for school or will not attend that day. If you call after 8:45am, please still leave your detailed message on the attendance line voicemail but remember, if it is after 8:45am, we can't guarantee that you won't get an automated call regarding your child's absence.


We will still get the message and prefer that you leave us a message rather than calling directly to the office.
