Swather Families -

Our school year is quickly coming to an end in a few short weeks. I would like to take this opportunity to thank students and parents for a great year. It has been a year of learning and growth. Thanks for your support. Hesston Elementary is a great place for your child to learn and grow.

Our fourth graders have begun the transition process to the Middle School, and have been communicating with their 7th grade buddies.  Fourth Grade Clap Up will occur, but just in a little different way. More details will be shared as the time gets near. 

Technology devices used during the school closure will be collected Friday, May 22. iPads, chargers, any remaining library books, and baggie books will be turned in that day. See link for specific details: Technology Device Drop Off Instructions .

Kindergarten Round Up will occur on May 27 see the attached presentation for more information on this event. We are excited to meet the Class of 2033. We look forward to having new families join us at H.E.S.

Class placements for the 2020-21 school year will begin soon. If you have questions or concerns regarding placement, please communicate with me in writing by June 1. There are many factors carefully considered by our team before a child is placed in a specific classroom. Therefore, individual teacher requests will not be taken. We are dedicated to meeting the educational, social, and emotional needs of each child and will address issues affecting your child on an individual basis.

With the warmer weather, more students are riding their bikes. Please remind your child to wear their bike helmet and practice bike safety.

Also, please check the lost and found box in the entryway. It is full and running over with coats and jackets. The entry way is open from 8:00-4:00, Monday-Friday. 

Thank you parents for supporting teachers and your child(ren) throughout the year with reading, math facts, and with positive affirmations. Your tireless efforts and motivation make a difference in the success of your child. Have a wonderful summer and I look forward to next year.
