Forward Exam

This year, all Wisconsin students in grades 3-8 and 10 will once again participate in an assessment called the Forward Exam. These tests are designed to obtain important information about each student's achievement in the areas of math, science, social studies, english language arts: reading, writing and listening. In addition, these assessments will be a measure of state accountability for our school and our district. This year students at Hadfield will take the exam April 20th - April 28th. Please see the link for more details.

Items from Home

Parents please talk with your child about items from home that are being brought to school and causing a distraction during the school day. The following items should remain at home: makeup/lipstick/nail polish, all toys, cell phones, all trading cards and playground toys such as balls and bats. These items should stay at home and will not be allowed in the classroom, playground or lunchroom. Thank you for your support with this.

Digital Citizenship March

Hello Parents,

Parents, this month’s Digital Citizenship focus is cyberbullying. Cyberbullying is using an electronic device and the internet to post or text unkind messages, embarrassing photos or unkind rumors about someone else, with the intention of humiliating them or harassing them.

Children who are bullied, either online or in person are more likely to have low self-esteem, be unhappy at school and skip school, have more physical health problems and be more likely to use alcohol and drugs. So, it is important that we as parents and educators, address this problem.

Parents, pay attention to how your child uses the internet. Ask them to show you the social media websites they use. Make sure they know that they should never respond to, or forward or repost a cyberbullying message; they should show you any unkind texts or messages, so that you can help them block that user, or stop using that site. Read more about cyberbullying at: Common Sense Media: https://www.commonsensemedia.org/video/advice/cyberbullying.

Thank you for taking time to discuss this with your students.

PTO Coin Challenge - Results

Thank you to all the families that donated coins and paper to the PTO Coin Challenge. We collected $635 which will help with field trip costs. Congratulations to Mrs. Hoem, Mr. Shockley and Mrs. Clavette's classrooms as they collected the most money.

Classroom Spotlight - 4th Grade

Thanks to all the parents that came to our student led conferences. We hope you found them valuable. It is important for students to take ownership for their learning and leading the conference was a vital part of that process. The goal setting that happened at the conference is also a way for students to monitor their learning. Please continue to view your child’s continuum in literacy and numeracy and have conversations about their progress at home.
