Message from Ms. Aiello
Dear Hutchison Families,
We had a wonderful Family Fun Night event! Almost 200 families connected, laughed, danced, and dined! Thank you Edwin the Eagle and all of our staff volunteers for supporting Friday's event. This Saturday is Herndon's Homecoming Parade! Come cheer Hutchison on.
Teachers are busy analyzing assessments that have been given, planning for instruction and many are working on the grade level big event plans for curriculum activities, field trips and other exciting learning experiences. It is so nice to be planning for so many engaging and enriching experiences for our students.
It is hard to believe that we have arrived in the month of October! October has a variety of student holidays, so make sure you mark your calendars! Community Connections will cover a wide variety of topics in October and November. I’m so excited for these opportunities to present to you what our teachers are working on in the classrooms. As always, please reach out if I can answer any questions.

- October Community Connections

Attendance: When Should I Keep My Child Home?
Attendance Today & Achieve Tomorrow!
September is Attendance Awareness Month. Some of the ways parents can help their children create healthy routines and a habit of getting to school on time every day include:
Set a regular bedtime and morning routine. (Need help? View this morning checklist, available in English or Spanish.)
Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before.
If your child seems anxious about going to school, talk to teachers, school counselors, or other parents for advice on how to make them feel comfortable and excited about learning.
Develop back-up plans for getting to school if something comes up. Call on a family member, a neighbor, or another parent.
When possible, avoid medical appointments or extended trips when school is in session.
Visit our website for more attendance resources. Attend today, Achieve Tomorrow!
