In the coming weeks classroom teachers will begin training students about our procedures for what to do in the event of an emergency here at HBB. We will be discussing topics such as what to do in the event of an intruder and other similar scenarios and we want you to know that we handle these conversations in a sensitive, age appropriate manner. Unfortunately this is a reality we face and our goal is to ensure that our students are prepared, not scared. Over the years we have gotten pretty good at this but, like anything else, there may be questions. If your child is asking questions please talk to them. Please let them know that this is similar to practicing a fire drill, it doesn’t mean something is going to happen, we just want to be prepared. Lastly, should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.
Looking for STEM Week Volunteers!
Last year we hosted our first ever STEM Week the week before the holiday break and it was a huge success. One our kids’ favorite part of STEM Week was all the parent and community volunteers that came in to visit classes.
If you have something to share or if you work in the field of Science, Technology, Engineering or Math we would love to have you come visit a class!
If you are interested or if you have any questions about how you can help out with STEM Week please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school.
STEM Week will be December 16-20.
