JANUARY’S GOOD DEED OF THE MONTH

We are so proud, once again, of our students’ efforts to support the Good Deed of the Month at Anne Hutch. We are excited to partner, once again, with The Loukoumi Make a Difference Foundation in a new charitable collaboration with the Broadway play Come From Away, a Tony Award winning musical that tells the ultimate story of kindness.

A successful bake sale.

The “Sweet Treat Girls,” pictured here, hosted a bake sale this week to support our school’s donation to the charitable organization Broadway Cares and raised over $300. We are looking forward to presenting our donation at the February 1st performance of the show. For more information, including the opportunity to attend the show and an exclusive Q&A for our group after the show, please visit: www.LoukoumiFoundation.org.

News from your Anne Hutchinson Library

Beginning on Monday, January 28th, the library and technology classes will flip. Students will be going to technology for the third quarter. 

However, each class will have a 15 minute check out period approximately every 2 weeks with their classroom teacher and Ms. Natalie Bochenski, our library clerk,  so that students can select new books.  Please remind your child to bring his/her books on the appropriate day so that he may participate in the check out period. 

3RD GRADE POETRY CELEBRATION

Thank you to all of our supportive 3rd grade families for attending our poetry celebration last Friday! The students were excited to share the amazing poems they wrote with the expert guidance of our visiting teacher Ted Scheu. We are so lucky to host Ted Scheu “That Poetry Guy” at Anne Hutch, thanks to our ever generous PTA! Thanks to our wonderful 3rd grade teaching team for preparing the morning’s festivities!

3rd Graders share their published poetry with family and friends.

IMPROVING THE CAR LINE AT ARRIVAL AND DISMISSAL

In upcoming weeks, we will work to improve the safety and speed of our arrival and dismissal car lines. Our goal is to make this process as efficient as possible for our families.

Please note the following:

  • At ARRIVAL, school staff will be directing the car line to pull up as far as possible in the circle before students exit the car. Hopefully, this will alleviate traffic and delays.
  • At DISMISSAL, school staff will be directing the car line to stay in one lane and wait in their vehicle for their child. Please note that if you would like to meet your child at their dismissal point, you must park off campus.

NURSE’S CORNER

Scoliosis Screening – Grade 5- girls only

The New York State Education Law requires that all girls in 5th grade receive a school screening examination to identify the possibility of a curvature of the spine (scoliosis). Each child is screened separately.  Girls are required to wear a bra or bathing suit top to allow me to visualize their backs. Please do not have your daughter wear a full-piece bathing suit as this does not allow correct visualization.

I will screen all 5th grade girls during their regular gym period: Monday January 28th for Mrs. O’Neill’s, Ms. Rogan’s, and Mrs. Santoro’s classes; Tuesday, January 29th for Mrs. Farley’s and  Mr.O’Neil’s classes

3rd GRADE POETRY CELEBRATION

On Friday, January 18th, 3rd grade families are invited to join us in the classrooms at 9:30 am for a very special celebration of poetry! Through the generosity of our PTA, students have been engaging in reading and writing poetry under the expert guidance of Ted Scheu, “That Poetry Guy”. Our 3rd graders are eager to share their poems and we look forward to welcoming families next Friday!
