A Message From Ms. Loy, Principal
December 1, 2016
Dear Hacienda families,
This is the time of year that we pause, reflect on all that we have to be thankful for, eat lots of turkey, and appreciate our family and friends. In my celebration of Thanksgiving, I thought about how thankful I am for the wonderful children who attend Hacienda, our superb staff, and of course, all of the families and friends who support our school.
The month of December is always a busy time, with music performances, celebrations, and academic challenges such as the winter writing performance assessment taking place before we go to Winter Break.
On December 16, our 1st and 2nd graders are presenting their Holiday Chorus, and on December 21st, our kindergarten students are performing. Each of these performances will take place in the cafeteria. This year, we are asking parents NOT TO RECORD THESE PERFORMANCES. There are two reasons for this change. First, we have a number of students whose families have requested that their child not be photographed, and we must respect their right to privacy. The second reason is that recording (whether it be with a phone or with a tablet) impedes EVERY parents’ ability to see their child. Mrs. Ulrich has asked me to include a link to an article that does a great job explaining the rationale behind not recording your child’s performance. Here it is… http://momastery.com/blog/2014/05/23/kids-year-performance/
We ask that you enjoy the show, and live in the moment. I know that Mrs. Ulrich and Mrs. Thompson will be sure to provide photo opportunities for each of you at the end of the performances.
Finally, I would like to wish each of you a warm and wonderful holiday season. Celebrate with friends and family, and share your traditions with others, whatever those may be! My holiday CD’s are already playing, and I look forward to a holly jolly month.:)

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.
