5th Grade Course Selection

The middle school counselors are speaking to all of the fifth grade students to talk about next year and course selections. We understand that there may be some uncertainty for parents as well as the students regarding transitioning to middle school - especially surrounding course selections. In order to help the transition, we have created a presentation with narration on how to fill out the middle school course selection sheet. Please take a moment to view the presentation and help your child fill out the course selection sheet.

Parent Survey

Dear Parents/Guardians,


The School District of Waukesha is committed to providing high quality science education to all students. We ask that each family complete this survey so that we can best meet the needs of all students. Please answer the questions, based on your entire experience as a whole, not just the current school year.


Your answers will give insight to the ways we can best instruct and build our curriculum, so your time is greatly appreciated.

Labels for Education

Hadfield Elementary is now collecting and redeeming Labels for Education!

Through the program we can collect UPCs from participating products to earn points that can be redeemed for FREE educational merchandise!

It’s easy to help – simply save UPCs from participating products and drop them off at Hadfield Elementary (in the office or give to your child's teacher). Just look for this image on many products you already use - from Campbells to V8 Splash to Bic.

If you have any questions please contact our Labels for Education Coordinator, Krisi Button, via email at krisi.button@gmail.com.

Thank you for your support. Together with the Labels for Education program – we can build a better school for our children.
