From the Principal


We have almost made it through our adventure at the Plaza and GMTCC.  It has been a wonderful year for staff and students.  There have been a few “bumps”, but we have learned a lot and are grateful that we are returning to a beautiful and highly functional learning facility. 
With thoughts turned towards the next school year, we wanted to provide you information as soon as possible in this regards.  One thing we have noticed is that our tardy rate has gone down significantly with our later start time.  Our teachers have also had time to have meetings in the morning, and have started their day with children with a lot of details out of the way that can interrupt the school day.  This said, we will have a slightly different start time.  End of day times are still being finalized as we figure out the new bus configuration and parking lot.

Students and Buses are expected to arrive at 8:05 AM.
Students are expected to be in their classrooms   and ready for their day at 8:10 AM.

We will accommodate Early Drop off at 7:40 AM (we will have early drop off forms sent home so we can make arrangements for student support at this time, as teachers will be in meetings until 8:05.  It also has been very helpful to know who was coming early as it helped us provide appropriate resources for students).

Field Day Thursday, June 14th
Our end-of-the-year field day will be held at the Oxbow in Morrisville on Thursday afternoon.  As we have done in the past, we are walking students to the Oxbow, serving lunch (All students will be provided lunch) at the field and having some fun activities.  We will then walk them back to school for dismissal.  Please make sure your child is wearing sneakers or walking shoes (no flip-flops, sandals, crocs…).  We have a long walk and we willbe playing games that will be very active as in PE class.  We want to avoid blisters and injuries.  Also, please apply sunscreen in the morning before school if you can; we will have sunscreen, but it is best to have an application at home just in case.

IN CASE OF RAIN… We will be staying at the Plaza, but all students will be supplied lunch as if we were at field day.  Please note – The June menu shows Burritos on the 14th and Hamburgers on the 12th.  Due to Field Day on the 14th, we will now be having Burritos on the 12th and Hamburgers on the 14th.


Visit to the Newly Renovated Village School

Our plan is to take each grade level, K-5, over to their new learning facility (HPES Village School) on Friday, June 15th.  They will be taking a bus over, getting a quick tour and returning to the Plaza.  If your child has a field trip that day we are working on providing a visit on another day. 

Library Books

This is a friendly reminder that all library books are due.  Books from The Lanpher Memorial Library, HPES Library, and LUHS/MS books.  Thanks ~ Robin Bryce, Librarian.
Lost and Found

Our Lost and Found is overflowing!  Please come and check to see if there is anything that belongs to your child.
