A Message From Ms. Loy, Principal
October 13, 2016
Dear Hacienda families,
Welcome back from what I hope was a fabulous Fall Break! This time of year is one of my favorites. There are pumpkins on every corner, the Fall colors are glorious, and we have so many special things to look forward to.
One of those special events on the horizon is Fall Festival. Scheduled for Friday, October 28th, from 5:30 to 9:00. I hope that each of you come out for a fun filled event with games, a haunted house, good eats, and lots of great company!
The following week after Fall Festival is conference week. From October 31st - November 4th school will be dismissed 120 minutes earlier than usual. Because dismissal time falls right at the end of lunch, for consistency sake, 1st-5th grade will all be dismissed at 1:00. Kindergarten will be dismissed 5 minutes earlier at 12:55.
Finally, on Monday, October 31st, we will celebrate Halloween, Hacienda style. Due to the early dismissal time, the events will be adjusted. This year, we are bringing back our special Halloween Sing-along, with songs written by former Hacienda teacher Kathy Haydel, and led by our own Monica Ulrich and Danielle Thompson, in the cafeteria. The sing-alongs are scheduled for 9:00 and 10:00 am. Teachers may choose to have a classroom celebration during the day, not to exceed one hour.
This year, the staff has agreed that we will not have a Halloween parade. However, students may come to school wearing their appropriate costumes (no bulky, boxy costumes, no blood or gore, and nothing that obstructs vision). In other words, costumes must be appropriate to wear to school, and allow students enough mobility to work in the classroom. Students may wear costumes for the entire day, however, if they would prefer to bring a change of clothing in their back packs, that’s fine too. Please consider not having your child wear face make up as it is often hot and can become uncomfortable throughout the day.
Enjoy the season, everyone!

2016-17 School Year
Headphones for Each Student
Beginning in the 2016-17 school year we are asking that each student bring one headphone (or ear bud) set for use with computers. (Please put it in a ziplock bag labeled with child’s name, teacher’s name, classroom #.) The set you provide for your child is for their school use, and it will be sent home at the end of the year. Headphone scholarships will be available on a request basis.
