Dear Hanby Families,

I can hardly believe we are already halfway through the year! Please spend time talking to your child about any resolutions and/or goals they may have made for the remainder of the school year. Discuss with them their areas of strengths and spend time developing an action plan for refining any areas in which they may need to improve in regards to academics and/or behavior. We still have a lot of information to cover the remainder of the year so we very much appreciate your support!  


Please make a note of the following information and/or events:




· VALENTINE'S BOX DESIGN CHALLENGE: It is time for Hanby's 3rd Annual Valentine's Day Box Challenge! All entries are due to your child's classroom no later than February 14th at 9:05am! This is always a fun way for our students to demonstrate their design and creative skills! 


· FRIENDSHIP PARTIES: Hanby classrooms will host Friendship Parties on February 14th as well! As always please consult with your child's teacher regarding refreshment needs before sending in any edible treats for the classroom! We also ask that the focus is on Friendship and individual gifts from one student to another are not brought in to school, which ensures that an inclusive environment is encouraged on this special day!

SMARTS-A-THON: The Hanby PTA will host a Animal Spirit Week COMING in May.


FEBRUARY PTA MEETING: Hanby has the best PTA in Westerville! Stop by a meeting and come be a part of it at your next opportunity. Please stop by February's meeting on February 28th at 6:30pm! We look forward to seeing you!


MAGNET FAIR IS COMING SOON!:  Please continue to tell others about the positive experiences you are having here at Hanby. It will soon be time for the Magnet Fair and Open House! This year it will be held here at Hanby on Wednesday, March 7, 2018, 6:00-7:00pm. Remember that your positive feedback encourages other students to apply! Thank you for sharing positive things about Hanby!


INTENT TO RETURN LETTER: In preparation for the upcoming Magnet Fair mentioned above, please look for a letter in your child's book bag on Friday, February 9, 2018. This Intent to Return letter will ask for you to indicate your intentions on returning your child to Hanby next school year-it reserves your seat! We ask that all letters be returned by Friday, February 17, 2017. Please check your child's book bag for this important information.


Spring Testing: Spring Testing is rapidly approaching. In preparation please visit the Westerville City School District's webpage  to view assessment dates for the Spring: 


We ask that you do not schedule vacations or appointments on these days so that your child is able to test with his or her class .  Thank you in advance for being mindful of this!


The above are just a few of the important events occurring at Hanby during the upcoming months!  Please check the Family Hanby Happenings emailed each week for additional important dates and information!  


Thank you so much for all you do! We appreciate all the support that you provide to your child and to Hanby! 

Monica Brown
