With the end of the year and the coming of the warm weather, I would like to remind you that flip flops and open back sandals are not appropriate or safe for school. Students going up and down stairs, playing in the schoolyard, playground and gym need sturdier footwear to help avoid accidents. Your child’s safety is our main concern. Please help by supporting this school policy.

May 7-11 is designated as Teacher Appreciation Week. As always, the PTA is planning small acts of kindness for the Haviland Staff. We also use this week as an opportunity to honor our unsung heroes. We consider every adult at Haviland a teacher. On Monday we honor Mr. Jim, our Custodian; Tuesday, our Librarian, Mrs. Terlingo; Wednesday; Nurse Ann and our Counselor, Mrs. Graham; Thursday, all of the Classroom Aides and Lunchroom Aides; Friday—Classroom Teachers!!!!!!!! Please join us in honoring ALL of our Haviland Teachers.

Children’s Night is Wednesday, May 23 from 7:00pm-8:30PM. Please come by Haviland that evening to see all of the wonderful art work your children have created this year under the direction of our Art teacher, Ms. Casey Snock.

The PTA Sponsored Scholastic Book Fair will begin the evening of Friday, May 4 with Family Night. This is an excellent opportunity for your favorite reader to purchase books for summer reading.  As an added bonus, it is a BUY ONE GET ONE FREE event. The students will visit the Book Fair Monday & Tuesday during school hours. 

On Thursday, May 17, 12:30-1:30PM we will welcome incoming Kindergarten Students and their parents for an Orientation. This is an opportunity to meet the teachers, visit classrooms and have a tour of the school. We respectfully request that you make child care arrangements for younger siblings so that we can have your undivided attention for his important visit.

Our annual Moving Up Day will be held on Friday, June 1, 2018. The current Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd Grade students will have the opportunity to Move Up into the next grade to learn something about what to expect next year, and to meet the teachers. This will require our 2nd grade students taking a bus over to Mansion Avenue School for a portion of the morning to meet the principal and the third grade teachers. BSI Teachers, Specials Teachers, and the Guidance Counselor will be enlisted to travel with the students for supervision on the bus, etc. You will receive more information as plans develop as well as a form for Grade 2 parents to sign to allow your child to take the bus over to Mansion School.

 Goodbye until next time!
