6th GRADE LUNCHEON

6th grade parents you should have received a letter with information about the 6th grade recognition. Please complete the form and indicate how many will be attending the recognition program. If you have questions please contact your child’s teacher.

 

FINE ARTS NIGHT

Fine Arts Night is Tuesday, May 9, at Hawk Hollow. Each class will sing a brief song or two in the gym and students’ art work will be on display on the first floor.  First grade, second grade and Mrs. Dyer's third grade will sing in order starting at 5:30. Mrs. Henderson's class and fourth, fifth and sixth grades will sing in order starting at 6:30. We also will have a few vocal and instrument solos and duets. Each student is free to leave after they sing. There is no need to stay for the entire evening but everyone is welcome. It's more like an open house than a formal concert.  Please email Mrs. Smith with any questions at Sandrabsmith@u-46.org

 

NOTES FROM THE NURSE

SEASONAL ALLERGIES

Some students have seasonal allergies.  Spring is here and now is the time of year to be proactive. Symptoms include sneezing, runny nose, congestion, cough, sinus pressure, watery eyes, and itchy eyes, nose and throat.  For those with asthma these allergens can trigger typical asthma symptoms such as shortness of breath, wheezing and cough. If your student gets symptoms at the same time every year, talk with his or her healthcare provider.    Allergies begin when trees, flowering plants, grasses and weeds release pollen.  Molds that grow in soil, vegetation and rotting wood can cause allergic symptoms when they become airborne.  

 

5th GRADE PARENTS

It is time to start preparing for 6th grade health requirements. Illinois State code requires that students in 6th grade submit a report of physical examination, and immunization records in order to attend school.  All 5th graders received a copy of the 2017-18 Health Requirements and required Physical Form in March.  You may return physical forms to school at any time.  Please make a copy of completed physical for your records. If our son/daughter has had a recent physical (done after 8/16/16) please send it to the school nurse during this school year. I encourage you to schedule appointments early, as appointments for school physicals fill quickly. *Physical exam must be submitted before or on the first day of school or your child will not be able to start school the first day. If you have any questions, call the nurse's office.

 

NO PARKING

I have spoken to many parents personally, but want to remind you that parking on Jacaranda Drive at dismissal is prohibited.  Parking on the street and walking across to the school to pick up your child or having students walk across the street to meet you compromises your and their safety. For the safety of all, please use the parent loop or use one of the available parking spaces on the visitor parking lot.

 

NOTES FROM THE NURSE

BIRTHDAY TREATS/ALLERGY POLICY

This is a friendly reminder that no food should be sent to school for birthday treats. For Holiday Parties, treats will be coordinated by the room mothers and teachers, no other treats should be sent in. Please review the Hawk Hollow Allergy Policy below that was sent home in September. Thank you!

Hawk Hollow Allergy Policy:

1.      Birthdays celebrated at Hawk Hollow will be without food, peanut products, balloons or flowers.

2.      We will continue to celebrate major occasions such as the Halloween, winter holiday, Valentine’s Day, etc. No peanuts, nuts, or peanut products will be allowed.

3.      All food provided for the holiday parties MUST be store bought food only.  This food needs to be in its original packaging with labels.

4.      No peanut butter or peanut product food will be permitted at Hawk Hollow parties or for daily snack time.

5.      Parents of students with allergies will assume responsibility for providing all food products for their own children.

TARDY

Parents, as you know it is very important for your child to attend school daily.  It is also important for them to arrive to school on time every day.  Per district guidelines, habitual tardiness is a form of truancy and may result in a referral to the Kane County Truancy Office for further action.  Please help your child by getting them to school promptly before 8:30 am.

As a reminder, if your child arrives after 8:30 am you must escort them inside to the office to sign them in.
