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 lcilione@eufsdk12.org 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.!



Traveling to a foreign land this summer?  Snap a picture of yourself reading in front of the Leaning Tower of Pisa!  

Maybe taking a cruise to Bermuda? How about a picture on your cabin balcony?Staying closer to home?  Maybe reading in front of the Empire State Building would be fun. Heading upstate to see the relatives?  Photograph yourself reading with Niagara Falls in the background! Going on a “staycation” in your backyard? Take a picture of yourself reading on the couch! Anywhere you go (or stay) this summer, snap a picture of yourself reading a book with afun, unusual or exotic background and mail it in for our library display.Here’s what you have to do:  print a copy of the photo of yourself reading a book “on location.” Label the front border of the photo with your name,grade (in September), and where you were caught reading.

Mail the photo to: Anne Hutchinson School Library, Get Caught Reading!

60 Mill Road, Eastchester, NY  10709. All photos must be received by August 30th. It’s as easy as that. Check out the library display on Open House night and see where Anne Hutch students got caught reading this summer!!

Summer Reading

Summer is quickly approaching and we can’t emphasize enough the importance of reading for enjoyment every day over vacation! Toward this goal, we are sharing the following links for the Eastchester Public Library and Tuckahoe Public Library Summer Reading Games. Both librarians have asked for our help in passing along information about these valuable summer programs to parents and students!

3rd Grade Recorder Concert

Our 3rd graders enjoyed making music for their families and their schoolmates on Thursday during the annual recorder concert! Each class performed a song and the entire grade performed two additional songs as well. I would like to congratulate our 3rd graders on a job very well done! I would also like to thank Ms. Greene and our 3rd grade teachers for organizing this event.

Field Day

We had great weather and lots of fun on Field Day today! Thank you to our talented PE teachers, Mr. O’Connor, Coach Okie, and Ms. Caridi and our hard-working custodial staff for preparing such a wonderful event for our students! Thanks too to the many Anne Hutch families who joined us for line dancing and a picnic lunch!

2nd Grade Orientations for Students and Families

It was so exciting to welcome our soon-to-be 2nd graders on Wednesday morning! The 1st graders traveled from Waverly School to spend time in the 2nd grade classrooms with the current 2nd graders and to tour the school with the 2nd grade teachers. We were so impressed by their wonderful questions and their stellar behavior! We look forward to welcoming our new students and their families to Anne Hutch this fall!

Field Day 2019

Field day will be held this year Friday June 7th with the rain date being Monday June 10th. Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for outdoor physical activity. This includes sneakers, short clothing, hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen. We also ask that each student brings a water bottle to carry around with them for the day. Water will be provided by the school as well, but having your own will increase hydration and allow field day to run smoother. Field day activities will begin in the morning and end at 11:30AM. At 11:30AM line dancing will begin in which parents are invited to come and watch. After line dancing our school picnic will begin at 12:00pm and go until 1:00PM. Parents are also invited to join our school picnic. Please make sure that your child brings a bagged lunch to school or has arrangements to receive lunch during the picnic because the cafeteria will not be serving lunch that day. Students also are asked to wear a grade color t-shirt which is listed below. The t-shirt does not have to be any specific shade of the color or entirely that color. As long as most of the t-shirt is the grade color it’s acceptable. This will be the final event of the year for the AH Curriculum Olympics.  I hope to see you all at Field Day on the Friday, June 7th.

2nd– Red

3rd– Blue


5th– Fifth grade T-shirt
