Welcome to Hartley Elementary!
Dear Hartley Families,
Welcome back to school to all our veteran families, and welcome to Hartley newcomers (home of the hardworking Hawks!) if this is your first year at our school. It is truly a glorious thing to have our students back in the building, and I am thrilled by the learning I have already seen take place in each of our classrooms since the very first day of school.
Welcome to our new staff members, Debbie Godwin (LEA clerk), Taylor Barry (1st grade associate teacher), Kacey Overstreet (1st grade), Kim Sikes (2nd grade associate teacher), Jennifer Earnshaw (4th grade), Jeff Eggleston (5th grade) and Bob Barnett (5th grade). Be sure to see Mrs. Garbini’s bulletin board next to the front office so you can connect a face to our new names. We are very excited to have all of you join our Hartley family!
I want to urge those of you who may have a little extra time on your hands this year to consider volunteering at school. Our new volunteer coordinator is Lindsey Miller, and she has lots of ideas about how your talents can be put to use at Hartley, so please see her column with information about our upcoming volunteer breakfast training and jump on in!
As many of you know, we are committed to limiting our fundraising efforts at Hartley to one major event every other year. On alternating years, we raise funds for a non-profit charity, usually The American Heart Association. This year, we will be conducting a Boosterthon Fun Run as we have done in the past. We like this event because students aren’t asked to sell products, and EVERY child, whether or not he/she raises pledges, is able to participate in the character lessons and awesome “Tech Trek” fun run as well as receive a free T-shirt on the last day of the drive. We will be using funds from this drive this year to purchase new student computers, iPads and teacher “clicker” sets, so thank you in advance for your support.
