Good evening Hallman Community!  

This is Jessica Brenden, Principal of Hallman Elementary School with your weekly Hallman Message.  

This week at Hallman, we are looking ahead to the cool events coming up this month! On the 20th, we have a Volunteer Kickoff where you can learn how to volunteer in support of Hallman elementary.  Staff will be on hand to help with background checks and share opportunities with you. Volunteering has great health benefits–check out our Facebook page for the research!

In addition to the volunteering kickoff, Picture day is coming! This year Picture Day is September 25.  More information will be coming home in the Friday Folders, so be on the lookout!

Also, on September 27, we are having a Fundraiser at Chuck E. Cheese! This is to support Kindergarten’s trip to the Pumpkin Patch. The Chuck E. Cheese fundraiser is on September 27 from 4:00 to 9:00.  

Finally, you should know about early release here at Hallman. Once a month on the first Wednesday of the month, we have an early release day. Our first Early Release Wednesday will be on October 3 at 12:30. Please have a plan for your child for the afternoon of October 3 and be sure to let us know how he/she is getting home that day.  There IS childcare for that day available through the YMCA. Please call 503.581.9622 for more information and to get your child signed up. Again, that number is 503.581.9622.

Finally, I want to remind you that at dismissal, we are asking families of walkers to wait at the FRONT of the school, not the back of the school as in the past. When the bell rings, it is okay to proceed to the back of the school to pick up children.  Please let your family know about this if they don’t hear this message.

Thanks for reading and have a great evening!
