Take the Challenge!!!!

In collaboration with the American Heart Association, 5th Grade Student Council has chosen The Kids Heart Challenge as our school’s Good Deed of the Month for November. The Kids Heart Challenge is a fun and exciting event where your child learns about their heart while helping others by raising money for the American Heart Association. It prepares your child for success through physical and emotional well-being. Through Kids Heart Challenge, kids learn jump rope skills, how their heart works and raise money to help kids with special hearts. Children have fun, learn how to stay healthy and make a difference in the lives of others!

Visit heart.org/KidsHeartChallenge, or search “Kids Heart Challenge” in your app store. Find Anne Hutchinson School and sign up! Our event will take place in P.E. class the week of November 18-27th.

November’s Focus: Gratitude

The month of November is a time of thanksgiving. It is a season when most of us pause to reflect on our lives and to appreciate the gifts of our health, our loving families and friends, and the wonderful experiences we share together in life. For this reason, Anne Hutchinson School chose to focus on the habit of gratitude for the month of  November. At our recent HEART Assembly, our school community made a commitment to the belief that gratitude is the best attitude. 

We encourage our Anne Hutch families to join us in exploring how an attitude of gratitude will support us to truly engage in our learning and enjoy our lives more fully throughout the year. Consider giving out compliments, making a list of things you are grateful for or keeping a gratitude journal, volunteering in your community, or doing small, random acts of kindness. And, if all else fails, take comfort in knowing that simply smiling is an excellent way to demonstrate gratitude!

Out of concern for your child(ren), please call (914)793-6130 ext. 5111 EVERY time your child is not in attendance. You will reach a recording asking you to leave the first and last name of your child, date, class and reason for absence. If a student is absent without a parent calling, our attendance secretary will call the family. The absence must be followed by a note upon return to school indicating why your child was absent. We hope to insure the health and welfare of all children with these increased communications and precautions.

Lost and Found

As a gentle reminder, please make sure your child’s first and last name are on all of his or her belongings. Our Lost and Found is overflowing with unclaimed items, including hoodies, fleeces, hats, scarves, and even jackets! Please be sure to check the Lost and Found in the cafeteria for any lost items when you are here for your parent-teacher conference!
