March 2020 Newsletter
Dear Hunters Glen Families,
Thank you to those families who were able to attend conferences - it is greatly appreciated. We do understand that life and work schedules can prevent some families from attending, so please remember to reach out to your child’s teacher if you have any questions.
On Wednesday, March 18th, Hunters Glen Elementary will be sponsoring a Family Literacy Night based on How to Eat Fried Worms! We hope you and your family have been enjoying the shared reading experience. I know the students have been excited in school and have been talking about it. We hope to see you there at our Family Literacy Night in just a few weeks.
State Testing for students in 3rd, 4th, 5th Grade begins the week of March 16th. Please see the tentative schedule within this newsletter. It is very important to try to avoid appointments and other meetings in the mornings so students can be here to take their tests in the classroom, which is their most comfortable environment. Please ensure your child is getting enough sleep and eating a healthy breakfast on the day of testing. Also, we know many students become nervous with these tests. Our motto at Hunters Glen is we want all students to simply “Try their best” and we will be happy!
A big thank you and farewell to Mr. Ed Martinez, our head custodian. Ed has decided to take the challenge of moving to a bigger school and will be the head custodian at Thunder Vista K-8 school. Ed’s desire to help the environment by bringing composting to Hunters Glen has been a great contribution. We will miss Ed’s hard work, dedication, and great interactions and care for our students!
The week of March 23rd is Spring Break for Hunters Glen Elementary. We have regular, full school days until March 20th, so it is important that your child attends school. There is also no school on Monday, March 30th, as the office will be closed. Staff and students return to school on Tuesday, March 31st.
Please remember that although the weather is improving, the mornings can still be cool. Students go outside recess as long as the feels like temperature is above 20. Also, we know the better weather does allow more families to walk to and from school. Please remember that it is School Board Policy that all animals, including dogs, are not on our property during school hours, which includes drop off and pick up.
If you ever have any questions, concerns, or points of clarification, please never hesitate to contact the school. Thank you for your support!
Christopher J. Blados, Principal
