Dear Parents and Guardians:
It is hard to believe that we are approaching the holiday season and the end of 1st trimester is right around the corner! We have had an extremely exciting, fun-filled fall here at Hygiene and I would like to take this opportunity to highlight some of these celebrations and provide updates as we enter the month of November.
On behalf of the entire staff, I want to extend my gratitude and appreciation for the generosity and support with the 2018 Jogathon. We raised over $25,000 as a result of the hard work of students and donations from the Hygiene community and beyond. We appreciate all the work and efforts made to raise this money for our school.
On October 31st, we will be celebrating Halloween as a school. As a tradition, we begin our Halloween celebration with a Parade. This starts at 2:30 pm. Following the parade, classroom teachers will have parties in classrooms (see information from classroom teachers). As a reminder, please avoid scary costumes and masks that cover up the entire face so that our younger students feel safe.
We have a very special visitor coming to Hygiene on our Late Start day! On November 7, we will have a camel come to our school in the afternoon as a kickoff for our journey to Egypt in March. This is going to be an outstanding experience for our students! In addition, we are also calling all parents, artists or others with theatrical backgrounds to join us for our Informational Parent Meeting on Hawk Air November 15 at 4:00 pm in the library. This is a great opportunity to learn about Hawk Air and how all families can get involved in this school-wide event.
Do you know anyone interested in Kindergarten for the Fall of 2019? If so, please invite them to our Kindergarten Open House on November 7th from 5:30-6:30 pm. This is a great opportunity to learn about our Kindergarten program. Kindergarten Registration for the Fall of 2019 and Open Enrollment starts on December 3rd! Please mark your calendars now.
Our Holiday Meal will be November 12th. Tickets are $4.00 per person. We will also be recognizing our Veterans on this day. Please invite any Veterans to attend our Holiday Meal. This is a great community event so please join your child for a nice holiday meal during their lunch hour.
Take Care and Happy Trick or Treating! Please find more important updates below.
