Good evening Hallman Community!  This is Jessica Brenden, Principal of Hallman Elementary School with your weekly Hallman message.  We have been very excited to have students back in the building! What a wonderful week at Hallman!  This week, we welcome back our Kindergartners and we can’t wait to meet them!

I wanted to invite you to the Volunteering kick off.  This will be an Open House style event from 4-5:30 on September 20.  At this event, you can fill out a background check, learn more about volunteering at Hallman, OR, sign up to volunteer and earn yourself an “All in for Hallman” button!  We currently have 150 wonderful volunteers for Hallman and we would like to have 200! Help us achieve our goal! Staff will be on hand to share info about volunteering in and out of the classroom.  We hope to see you then!

Additionally, I wanted to remind you about dismissal. This school year, there are a couple of important changes to dismissal.  The first is that we are asking cars to NOT line up for dismissal until 3:25. This is to allow for those entering and leaving the building at this time to keep moving.  The other change is that we are asking those waiting for children to walk home after school to wait until 3:40 to come to the back of the school. So the two changes are that cars need to wait until 3:25 to line up and people picking up walkers need to wait in front of the school or at the back gate until the bell rings at 3:40, then proceed to the back of the school.  Thanks for helping us with these procedural changes!

Thanks for reading and have a great evening!
