The busy month of February has arrived and with it much learning and celebrating. We will be celebrating many February calendar events. They include: Valentine’s Day, Chinese New Year and President’s Day. We will NOT be in session on Monday, February 17th. As you can see we have a number of activities planned, and there will be much to learn. Be sure to quiz them occasionally. Our Valentine’s party is on Tuesday, February 11th, a day earlier than we normally would celebrate. We will have a Valentine tote bag for each child. Each student should arrive that day with a Valentine for each classmate. Please help your child sign his/her cards, with NO names on the envelopes. There are 15 children in the AM class and 15 children in the PM class. If you would like to send in a Valentine treat for each student you may do that as well, but you are under no obligation to do so. The reason for the party change is that on Feb, 12th, we will be visited by a chef and he will be teaching the children how to make fruit pizza. Chef Arnold is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, and is grandpap to our afternoon student Vivian Wirt.
We continue to have a super year. The children are doing well and we look forward to the coming months. Our testing is almost completed and the results will be compiled for our conferences on Monday, February 24th.. There will not be school that day, but if it is necessary to bring your child a table with crayons and puzzles will be available to keep them entertained. We will hold conferences in the event of a school delay, delaying your conference by 1 or 2 hours, whichever Hempfield decides. Remember to take a look at our cancellation/delay policies as noted in the handbook. You will also get a notification via the Remind APP.
Your conference has been scheduled for ________________________.
We are currently registering for the 2020-2021 school year. If your child is returning next year you MUST reregister. A space will not be held automatically. Please note that we have already registered several students for the morning session.
