Hello Hanby Families!
Wow! August and September have flown by rather quickly! Fall is upon us and there are lots of great things happening at Hanby!
We recently had our annual SMARTS-A-THON! The students had a great time participating in activities focused on math/science and the arts such as the OSU Bugmobile, weaving a cloth tapestry, and visiting the Westerville Library to learn about the music of Benjamin Hanby just to name a few! A huge THANK YOU to the PTA and to all who sponsored a student during this special event!
This month we have many other special events –two of which are highlighted below:
*Our third grade students are getting ready for the 3rd grade Reading OAA on October 7! While the third graders are the only grade testing at this time, (Grades 3-5 will test in the Spring) please encourage all students to show their support by encouraging our third graders to show what they know on the test! I am confident that our third graders will demonstrate the desired level of proficiency as they have been working hard on developing their literacy skills!
*Save the Date October 29th for the next Hanby family social event! Please mark your calendar for Wednesday, October 29h from 6-8:30pm. I plan to bring my family and I hope you will attend too! This fun filled PTA sponsored event will be held at Skate Zone 71 located on Morse Road.
Also, please don’t forget to sign up for a Parent Teacher Conference with your child’s teacher! We are nearing the end of the grading period and report cards will soon be available! If you have not set up a time with your child’s teacher for conference please do so as soon as possible. Your support is essential to ensure your child’s continued academic success!
In closing, I would like to thank you for your positive support and communication! Remember that my door is always open to you and I am just a phone call or email away! J
