Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! Although we had a few hot days (and maybe a few more next week), the staff and students have done an amazing job. Our students are reviewing our general school expectations and learning their classroom routines and rules. In addition, students are starting to show us what they know through different beginning-of-the-year assessments.

From the office here are some friendly reminders and helpful hints:
 Parents can start to drop off their children in the morning at 7:00 a.m. Please no earlier as we don’thave adult coverage and students can’t be in the building unattended.
 It is so important that parents check their child’s backpack each night for notices from the office, notes from the classroom teacher, homework/agendas, and nightly reading book bags.
 If you decide to send in cash to put on your child’s food account, please do so in an envelope with your child’s name on it. If you send in a larger bill and want it divided among accounts, please note that on the envelope.
 Faculty & staff district emails are set up with our first initial last name @ sau4.org. Some examples are: Ann Holloran--aholloran@sau4.org and Doreen Troup--dtroup@sau4.org. However, our school guidance counselor is tgagnon1@sau4.org.
 We have a school Facebook page, you can search NHCS-New Hampton Community School and follow us there.
 Our first PTO Meeting is Tuesday, September 11 at 7:30 a.m. Everyone is welcome to attend and we hope to see a great turnout.

 As cell phone numbers change or emergency contact information changes, please notify the office so that we can update our student information system.
 Mark your calendars:
o September 18—School Picture Day
o September 20—Book Fair 6:00-7:45 p.m. & Open House 6:30-7:30 p.m.
o October 4—Early Release—Students dismissed at noon
o October 5—No School—Teacher Workshop Day
o October 8—No School—Columbus Holiday

Our Mission Statement reads, “The students, staff and families of the New Hampton Community School believe that learning is a community journey. We strive for our students to be confident, respectful, engaging, life-long learners. We value our students’ strength of character, acts of achievement, individual responsibility, pursuit for excellence, and creative spirit. NHCS CARES!” We are so lucky to be on this journey with each and every student and his/her family! Please communicate often, provide thoughts and suggestions, celebrate the small accomplishments and let’s have an amazing year!

Have a fantastic Friday and lovely long weekend!

A reminder to parents to fill out and send the first day packets to school with their child, if you haven’t already done so. Thank you.
