Welcome to Hartley Elementary!

Hello Hartley Families!

We hope you have all had a wonderfully relaxing summer filled with plenty of rest, relaxation, and fun.  We are so excited to begin the 2015-2016 school year.  As we did last year, I would love to post a video for the website with teachers, students, and parents sharing what they are looking forward to most for the upcoming school year!  The more video clips we have, the better, so if you get a chance, shoot a short 10 second video clip on your smartphone and tell us what you are most excited about.  Email the clip to jesse.gates@stjohns.k12.fl.us with the subject line “New Year” by Saturday August 1st.  Thank you!

Here are a few resources and reminders for you-

  • Meet the teacher for Kindergarten will be on Thursday, August 6th beginning at 6pm.
  • Meet the teacher for all other grades will be on Friday August 7th from 9am to noon.
  • Class lists will be posted here on the website Tuesday August 4th.  Please be sure to sign up for our online newsletter, and you will be emailed the moment the class lists are posted.
  • Need pencils and paper and folders for Johnny and Suzy?  There are plenty of sales on school supplies in the area.  Here’s the supply list for Hartley.
  • Now’s the perfect time to print out this year’s master calendar and tape up onto the refrigerator!

Enjoy the last few days of summer, and we hope you are as excited as we are to begin a new school year here at Hartley Elementary.
