Hometown School Newsletter
September 7, 2021
I am also pleased to announce that our school and the middle school will be the first to receive library renovations starting this summer. We will be conducting focus groups of parents, teachers, staff members, and students. If you would like to participate in the focus groups to help design the space, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I groups will take place on September 13th and September 20th. I can't wait to see what we create!
Ice Cream Friday - Starting Friday, Sept 3rd (during lunchtime)
Every Friday throughout the school year, the PTA will be selling Vanilla Ice Cream Cups for $1.00 at lunch. Students can bring money in their lunch box or in an envelope marked with their name.
Book Fair - Sept 7th - 9th (during school hours)
Each class will visit the Book Fair with their teacher. If you would like to send money with your child you can send it in an envelope marked "Book Fair" with their name on it.

Teacher Spotlight: Mr. Connor Carson
Meet Our Staff
Welcome to Hometown, Mr. Carson!
*How long and what grades have you taught?*
"This will be my third year teaching! I have been a second grade teacher, an academic specialist, and now a third grade teacher! "
*If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why?*
"If I could travel anywhere, I would probably travel through Europe! I love the idea of backpacking and exploring new cultures and new places."
*What is the best thing about working at Hometown?*
"I have loved the families and staff at Hometown! They have been very welcoming as I have transitioned over and I am excited to continue working with them this year."
*What is your favorite food?*
"My favorite food is cheese pizza. I could probably have it for every meal if I could. (Maybe not breakfast though since I love my coffee too much!)
*Who is someone you admire and why?*
"I admire my mother. She has been an inspirational figure in my life as she cares so much about education and has fostered the love of learning in me."
If you see Mr. Carson around our school, make sure you welcome her to our Hometown team!
