Hancock Earth Month Challenge

Is your family ready for some spring cleaning? Gather up those reusable clothes and shoes, then bring them to the green and white USAgain donation bin in the front of school. For the month of April, Hancock is participating in the Earth Month Challenge and has the opportunity to EARN MONEY for every pound donated, in addition to lowering our community's environmental impact. Just make sure your items are enclosed in a closed trash bag before you toss them in the bin!

Purple Up For Military Kids April 15 

Hancock invites everyone to “Purple Up” on Friday, April 15th. Wearing purple is a visible way to show support and thank military youth for their strength and sacrifices. Purple indicates that all branches of the military are supported as all thought to combine together as a single color, purple. We would like to invite a group of parents dressed in uniform to line our hallways on 4/15 to welcome and high five students as they arrive at school. If you are available at 7:30am and interested in signing up for this event, please contact Dawn in the front office [email protected]

Have an Appointment? Need to Pick Up Early?

Please attempt to make non-emergency medical and dental appointments outside of the school day or school year.  We understand that cannot always be the case.  If you must take your child out of school early please try to give yourself and your child plenty of time.  Removing your child from school with less than 15 minutes of the school day left becomes challenging and chaotic for your child, your child’s teacher, the office staff and yourself.  We have a large campus and students many times could be somewhere other than their classroom (out at PE, Music, Garden, Art, etc.) By the time we track them down, their siblings, and get their items to go home, dismissal is already occurring.

Core Academy Saturday April 16

Does your student have absences to make up? Could he/she use some extra academic support?  Core Academy not only provides students with an opportunity to receive additional instruction in various core subject areas, but it also gives students the ability to make up one full day of absence and up to 4 tardies!. The next session will be Saturday, April 16 from 8:00a to 12:00p. We will be offering this to students in grades 2-5 only. Spaces are limited. This is one of the final sessions of the school year. Note that students will be provided a free breakfast snack during the session. Parents must pick students up promptly at noon.

Sign your student up for Core Academy here: Sign Up Link for 4/16

ELAC Meeting April 21

Our next English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) Meeting will be on Thursday, April 21st at 5:30 over Zoom.  We will be working on creating a survey to distribute to the families of our students learning English to see how we can better support them in our school community.  Please join us to lend your voice to this important legal task.

What are Your Plans for the 2022-2023 School Year?

It is the time of year for us to start planning for next year. Please take a few minutes to answer the questions in this survey about your plans for next year. If you have plans to move in the coming months, our office staff needs to know dates and destination information so that your student’s records can be finalized. We also would like to know about siblings that may be enrolling for next year. This information helps us prepare better for a smooth reopening. 2022-2023 School Year
