Fri, 08/28/2020 - 3:55pmIn the spirit of connecting with our wonderful families before the 2020-2021 school year begins, staff members from Hanover Hills Elementary School will be personally calling each of our families over the coming days. We are reaching out to all of our families because we value a strong home-to-school connection with each of you - and we will continue to solidify these relationships throughout the school year. If you receive a call from an unknown number, it is a good chance that it is a Husky staff member calling to welcome you to the new school year. If we are unable to reach you, we will attempt to leave a message. All information shared by staff members during these phone calls can also be found in our community news messages. Please Note: An email notifying you of your child's homeroom assignment was sent on Tuesday, 8/25/2020. We look forward to "seeing" our students virtually on 9/8/2020 - and welcoming all our families to the new school year!
Fri, 08/28/2020 - 3:35pm*You don't want to miss this! Included in the ATTACHED LETTER is a schedule of events, including our Virtual Open House and New Student Orientation, as well as information regarding the distribution of first semester academic materials.* Dear Huskies, As we prepare to begin what is sure to be another amazing year at Hanover Hills Elementary School, we wanted to take a moment to update you on our schedule and other announcements. With a new year comes a journey filled with promise, as well as the opportunity to make a difference. I can assure you, our staff will work together as a team to do just that. As a school, we remain committed to the Howard County Public School System’s vision of ensuring that every student and staff member embraces diversity and possesses the skills, knowledge and confidence to create a positive and welcoming school community. Teaching and learning will continue to be our key focus at Hanover Hills, and I am confident great things are in store for our learning community. Unfortunately, this year will continue to be shaped by COVID and the resulting virtual instruction - and we know that causes various feelings and emotions. As a staff, we will continue to go above and beyond to help your kids remain engaged. Although we will continue our focus on the best practices to educating our students, our focus will have to broaden to include a more robust approach to distance learning. Our students deserve the same strong sense of community, belonging and connectedness that they are used to receiving in our brick and mortar classrooms. Our commitment to our families is that through our reinvigorated focus on educating the child as a whole, and our re-imagined sense of community, we will reach new levels of success for all of our students. With that being said, please know that we highly value the home-to-school connection here at HHES. This vital system of communication and trust plays an integral role in each student’s success. We encourage you to contact us if and when the need arises, and to stay “in the know” about your child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and virtual engagement. We extend a special, yearlong invitation to all of our families to join us at virtual school activities and events whenever possible. We certainly look forward to the exciting journey ahead!
Fri, 08/28/2020 - 3:13pmAs many of you know, the pick-up of 2019-2020 essential items was scheduled and carried out in the spring. At that time, a survey was issued and all families who requested personal item pick-up were contacted. We recently sent out a survey for remaining items. As we received survey responses from families for non-essential items, and began searching our classrooms, it was brought to our attention that out of an abundance of caution, our custodial team discarded of all remaining non-essential items. This includes school supplies and items left in desks. We recognize that for some families this miscommunication will be disappointing. However, we applaud our custodial team for their hard work during the shutdown, as well as their dedication to keeping our building safe and clean during the continuing pandemic. Some of our families may have hoped to reuse remaining supplies from the 2019-2020 school year. We have begun collecting school supplies to support families in need. This includes items on our suggested school supply list. Please email your student's teacher, Mrs. Brackney at email@example.com, or Mrs. Lorch at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you are in need of support with obtaining school supplies. The distribution of academic materials for the 2020-2021 school year, as well as chromebook distribution for students who have not yet received one, will still occur as planned on 9/3/20 and 9/4/20. If you were planning to drop-off or return items, such as library books and musical instruments, this will also still occur. You do not need to notify us of items you wish to drop off. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email us directly. As always, stay well Huskies. In Case You Missed It Please see the distribution schedule below: If you have students in multiple grades, please come at the time designated for your youngest child. You will receive the materials for all of your students at once. More info regarding the pick-up location and drop-off process will be shared in the coming days. IMPORTANT: PLEASE PUT A SIGN IN YOUR WINDOW INDICATING YOUR CHILD(RENS) NAME AND THE GRADE THEY WILL BE ENTERING. THIS WILL MAKE THE DISTRIBUTION OF MATERIALS FASTER.
