Spirit Week at Hallinan

spirit-week

Our highly anticipated Spirit Week will kick off on May 31st this year.  We encourage you to join in the fun, but keep it simple!  We have done our best to arrange for days that are not terribly difficult to participate in – and we hope that all students show their Hallinan spirit on these days!

  • Tuesday, May 31st– Pajama Day
    • Easiest one by far!  Wear your pjs.  Remember appropriate shoes, and no blankets or stuffed animals please.
  • Wednesday, June 1st – Adults Dress Like Kids/Kids Dress Like Adults
    • Do your best to look like any staff member here at Hallinan!  We will do our best to look like you!
  • Thursday, June 2nd – Hallinan Day
    • Wear your Hallinan Hawks shirt or just wear blue!  We will be taking the whole school photo on this day!
  • Friday, June 3rd – Sports Team Day
    • You know Dr. Deboy isn’t having a Spirit Week without a chance to wear Blazer & Duck gear!  Represent your favorite sport team – any sport, any team – or maybe even wear your own uniform from your club team!  Please leave sports equipment at home!

 

Please let the front office know if you have any questions.  Can’t wait!

BOX TOPS

Who wants ice cream?
We are having a Box Tops contest before the end of the school year.
Any class turning in at least 200 box tops by May 20th will get ice cream for the entire class.  If no class reaches the 200 goal then the class with the highest total takes the prize.
Clip those box tops!

Elementary Early Release will occur weekly beginning next year

Calendar

Some changes for the 2016-17 school year have just been approved.  We will be moving to weekly early release.  This is to align with the secondary schools and save instructional time while providing our teachers with weekly opportunities to meet in Professional Learning Communities.

  • Beginning next year, early release for elementary students will occur each Thursday at 2:45 p.m. (No change to early release for junior high and high school students.)

  • High School early dismissal day (PSATs/inservice) changed from 10/12/16 to 10/19/16

  • 10/21/16 and 3/24/17 will be early dismissal half-days for elementary instead of no school days

  • Daycare will once again be onsite.  No busing to Uplands Elementary necessary given the later time frame.
