February 2018 Newsletter

Dear Hunters Glen Families,

January has flown by and we are approaching conference time again!  Parent/Teacher Conferences are scheduled for Wednesday, February 14th.  If you are unsure of your time or have not signed up for a conference yet, please talk to your child’s teacher. These conferences will provide you with updated mid-year data on your child and will help you and your child be ready for the rest of the school year.

In lieu of Valentine’s Day parties, students in grades 1-5 will be allowed to bring in Valentine Cards for their class and will be able to pass them out on Tuesday, February 13th.  Please remember that while Valentine Cards are optional, if you and your child do decide to bring them in, please ensure that you have one for each child in the class.  Kindergarten students will be doing an activity in class instead of passing out cards.

Hunters Glen is participating in an Energy Challenge against two other elementaries for a chance to win $8,000 to be used for energy reducing items for the school.  A Home Energy Action Form will be sent home soon.  If you complete this form and return it to school, you are helping us earn points for this challenge.  A link to complete the form online was also included in the message sending out this newsletter.  Anyone with a Colorado zip code can complete this form for Hunters Glen.  Please talk to neighbors, family, and friends and ask them to complete the form for us!  We have been discussing on the announcements that students have two jobs: (1) to remind their teacher to turn off the projectors while not in use and (2) to ensure the lights are off when they leave their room.

State testing for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders will be starting in March and continue in to April.  A schedule will be sent out in March so you know specific dates for each grade and for which test.  Please remember to have your child eat a good breakfast and be on time for school the days your child will test.  Also, please try to avoid any appointments or missed days (those that can be avoided) so your child does not have to make up the test on another day.

If you ever have any questions, concerns, or points of clarification, please never hesitate to call the school.  Thank you for your support!

Sincerely,

Christopher J. Blados, Principal
Hunters Glen Elementary
