Husky Highlight

January 13, 2020

Note from Ms. Moulton

Greetings, Hosmer Families,


What wonderful weekend weather we had! It was hard to believe that we are still solidly in the midst of winter. We do love going outside for recess, so please be cognizant of the forecast when getting kids ready for school. The temperature looks to be getting progressively colder as the week goes along.


This week, English Language Learners will begin ACCESS testing. This is a state-mandated assessment that provides information on language acquisition. It includes components on listening, speaking, reading, and writing.


This newsletter is chock full of information on many upcoming school, district, and community events. We are so lucky to live in such a vibrant community!


As always, thank you for your support of our fantastic school!
