Principal’s Message

Parent Education Night  Mark your calendars for Thursday, April 18th, from 6 – 7:30 pm, to learn from our community experts aboutNo Drama Discipline” and “Internet Safety.”       

Positive discipline doesn’t come naturally for most parents. At times, our children challenge and disappoint us when they don’t meet our high expectations for them. Plan to attend Erica Wortherly’s: “No Drama Discipline” to learn about positive parenting strategies.

A deputy from the St. Johns County Sheriff’s department will also be on hand to discuss internet safety and ways to monitor your child’s technology use. We hope you will be able to join us from 6 – 7:30 p.m. for an evening of valuable learning and discussion. Hotdogs, chips, and drinks will be provided.  Child care will be available.

Night of the Arts!  Join us for a celebration of music and the arts from 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, April 11! All Hartley students will have examples of their art on display, and Ms. Dizney’s “Rocking Recorders” group will perform for families and the community. The Gamble Rogers and Murray Jazz Bands will also be in the spotlight that evening. There will be face painting for the children and Kitchen Fried Chicken, Sporks, Kona Ice and South Pole Ice Cream food trucks available for your purchase. We hope to see you at the Night of the Arts!

2019 School Advisory Council Parent Survey results  Hartley’s School Advisory Council extends sincere thanks to the hundreds of parents who responded to this year’s Parent Needs Assessment survey. Your response will contribute to the development of next year’s school improvement plan.

Parent respondents gave Hartley high marks for providing a high-quality education, a focus on school safety and a welcoming environment. Areas for work include creating a more enjoyable experience in the school cafeteria and encouraging a greater number of parents to involve themselves in the life of our school by conferencing, volunteering and attending schoolwide activities.

Parents who are interested in becoming members of next year’s school advisory council are encouraged to email SAC Chair, Amber Kerly (third grade teacher), or Paul Goricki, Principal.

We are grateful for your active involvement at Hartley!

 FSA Proctors:  We still need proctors for the FSA tests occurring in May.  Proctors protect our teachers and students by acting as witnesses that all testing protocols were in place during the test.  The proctor is merely an observer who sits and watches.  A training is provided by our school counselor on the first morning the proctor arrives to assist. Proctoring is not difficult!  If you can help out, please log in to the Sign Up Genius (link to right) and pick a day or two.  https://www.signupgenius.com_FSA Proctors

If you have not already done so, please complete the School Access Form. The process for approval may take up to 4 weeks, so please fill out the application sooner than later for any guests that would like to have school access.
