Hello April

Hello April

Hello AprilDear Families & Friends,

Welcome to April! As the days get longer and the weather warmer, a renewed sense of energy and enthusiasm greets us each day. It feels like we all have a little more pep in our step as we look to make the best of the last trimester of this school year. This energy will certainly come in handy as the coming weeks are chock-full of learning and activity!

Highlights from March at Hills Garrison include:
➢ Read Across America activities in classrooms
➢ Guest readers in the Library (special thanks to Ms. Nikander for arranging these visitors)
➢ PTO Book Fair
➢ Family BINGO night (thank you, PTO, 5th grade Giving Gorillas, teachers, and staff for making this a fun night for all!)

Things to look forward to in April:
➢ STAR testing for all students - time to see our growth!
➢ 4/9: PTO Roller Kingdom Night
➢ 4/11: Chorus Concert
➢ 4/12: Spring Pictures with Hockmeyer
➢ 4/17: Grade 2 Discovery Museum
➢ 4/18: Chorus visits Alvirne High School Adult Care
➢ 4/22 - 4/26 Spring Break

Just as the New England weather reminds us that we have to hold on a little longer for spring to truly arrive, our focus on PATIENCE as our word of the month reminds us that perseverance is an important part of our life. Lessons and daily quotes will reinforce the importance of practicing patience with ourselves, with others, and with the world around us.

As always, we look forward to all that each day brings.  Thank you for sharing your children with us.  We hope that April brings you and your family time to relax, to enjoy nature, and to make wonderful memories together.


Until next time,


Lois Connors, Principal                       Sarah Muncey, Assistant Principal
