Fun Run Fundraiser for Anne Hutch

We need the support of our amazing Anne Hutch families! This year’s main fundraiser is the Fun Run! It’s a 9-day program that kicked off with a Pep Rally today. Families will gather pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps), and we’ll celebrate at the Fun Run on Tuesday, September 24th! We are partnering with the Fun Run experts at Boosterthon to power our Fun Run and make it more profitable, easier, and fun. 

Donations will go toward our school and to the entire 9-day experience. So please help our school by reaching out to sponsors. Also, all families are invited to come out and cheer on your student at the Fun Run! Ask your child to see the information they received today for more information on how to log onto! 

Thank you in advance for your support!

Welcome Back!!

We are thrilled to welcome all of our amazing students and their wonderful families to the new school year at Anne Hutchinson Elementary School! Our school spirit at Anne Hutch was soaring this week as our students met their teachers, made new friends, and aced our school routines and procedures! At our Welcome Back assemblies, students learned about the Anne Hutch has H.E.A.R.T. program, our proactive, schoolwide program that defines expectations for behavior, builds character, promotes academic achievement, and recognizes good decisions throughout the school. Please note that additional information about the program will be brought home in your child’s backpack next week. Thank you in advance for taking the time to review this important information about our school with your child and to return the family signature page to school!

September’s Habit: Kindness

Each month, as part of the Anne Hutch has H.E.A.R.T. program, we select a specific ethical habit we believe is critical to ensuring a safe and supportive school environment in which all students can learn at high levels. Throughout the month, as a school community, we seek a deeper understanding of the habit and come to an agreement about what it looks like, sounds like, and feels like at Anne Hutchinson School. In the month of September, we will focus on kindness.

This year’s schoolwide read-aloud for September, Carol McCloud’s Have You Filled a Bucket Today? A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids, emphasizes the power of bucket filling in our school community. McCloud’s engaging picture book teaches us that “a bucket filler is a loving, caring person who says and does nice things to make others feel special.” Quite simply, when you treat others with kindness and respect, you fill their bucket! And most importantly, our very best learning takes place when we are feeling safe, comfortable, and happy -in other words – when our buckets are full! Great conversations with your child throughout the month of September (and beyond) can begin with “Tell me about the buckets you filled today!”

Mrs. Cartolano’s class is ready to fill each other’s buckets!

Anne Hutch Summer H.E.A.R.T. Challenge

As the summer approaches, we would like to recognize the commitment our students have shown to the Anne Hutch has H.E.A.R.T. program. From September to June, students demonstrated our monthly H.E.A.R.T. habits and participated in Good Deeds of the Month

September: Kindness

October: Self Control

November: Gratitude

December: Generosity

January: Tolerance

February: Honesty

March: Perseverance

April: Responsibility

May: Good Choices

June: Lifelong Learning

As the school year draws to a close, we welcome summer with the Anne Hutch Summer H.E.A.R.T. Challenge for students to continue to practice the wonderful habits they learned throughout the school year. We invite students to think about a way to demonstrate a H.E.A.R.T habit this summer and share this experience with the Anne Hutch community.

Here is how to take part in this special challenge: Each student takes a photo or draws a picture showing him/herself engaged in one of the above H.E.A.R.T habits. Below the photo, the student should write a few sentences describing what he or she did, how it represents the habit, and the feeling the deed invoked for the student.

Summer H.E.A.R.T Challenges are due by the end of the first week of school. You can share your Summer H.E.A.R.T Challenges via Google to or use the template provided and place them in Ms. Cilione’s front office mailbox. We have included suggestions to help students get started.  Have a wonderful summer and remember to show H.E.A.R.T.!
