Dear Families,

Tom Chapin Concert

Big thanks to our PTA’s Cultural Arts Committee for arranging our very own concert with 3-time Grammy Award Winning singer-songwriter, Tom Chapin! On Wednesday, Mr. Chapin led the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders in many of their favorite songs, including “R-E-C-Y-C-L-E” and “Together Tomorrow.” His amazing guitar and banjo skills kept the children (and teachers) singing and a very good time was had by all!

DARE Picnic

2nd Grade Orientations for Students and Families

It was so fun to welcome our soon-to-be 2nd graders on Wednesday morning! The 1st graders had the opportunity to spend time in a 2nd grade classroom with the current 2nd graders and they also toured the school. We were impressed by their wonderful questions and their stellar behavior! We look forward to welcoming our new students and their families to Anne Hutch this fall!

Warmer Weather in May and June

Spring is here and with it comes warmer weather!  Here are a few important reminders for the coming months at Anne Hutch:

  • Please label jackets and hoodies with your child’s first and last name and speak to your child about being responsible for his or her belongings at school. Too many valuable items are ending up in the Lost and Found after recess.
  • Students are expected to dress appropriately for school. Keep in mind that midriff blouses are not allowed and shorts should be an appropriate style and length.
  • Appropriate footwear is required for health and safety reasons. Flip flops and high heels/wedges are not allowed due to safety concerns.

Thank you for your ongoing support!

Attention 4th Grade Parents…

 It is time to choose the 5th grade committee for the “Class of 2018.”  Being on this committee requires a lot of commitment and time to your child’s graduating class. You have to be willing to give 110% to all activities, meetings, and whatever else is needed to make your child’s final year at Anne Hutch a memorable one!
