Miss Olga's Mid-Year Message...
Dear Falcon Parents,
We at Edward A. Hall Middle School would like to wish all of you a wonderful Holiday Season. Please know that our vacation begins on Monday, December 22nd. Students will be excused on Friday, December 19th at 12:47; this means that this day will be a minimum day.
It is very important that you check with your student regarding any unfinished assignments. We want all of our Falcon Students to be successful and to soar academically. We strive to provide every opportunity to help your students by providing help during lunch and afterschool. Students have been much more responsible in coming to school on time, however, we still have some chronic tardies. Please help all of us by ensuring that your students come every day ready to learn and with their assignments done. Check School Loop for the latest assignments and progress for your student. If you do not know how to access this information, ask your student or come to the Parent Volunteer Center and ask Brenda Guzman to help you.
Finally, let’s welcome in the New Year, 2015, with Peace In Our Hearts! Have a wonderful family time. We are very fortunate to have such a dedicated staff working at E A Hall and such kind and loving parents. See you all back on Monday, January 12th, 2015.
Olga de Santa Anna, Principal
1:1 Chromebook Parent-Student Informational Meetings
Come learn about this exciting program, in which every E. A. Hall student will be able to check out a Chromebook to use during school and at home! To make sure we use the Life Skill of Responsibility with this wonderful tool, every student will be required to have at least one parent/guardian attend a 30 minute Chromebook information session in the E. A. Hall auditorium. At this meeting, parents and students will be asked to sign a contract which will give students permission to check out a Chromebook in January. We have 3 meetings scheduled for each grade level, and we have tried to accommodate all work schedules. It is very important that you attend one of the meetings!
Vengan a aprender sobre este programa, en el cual cada estudiante de E. A. Hall podrá usar un Chromebook en casa y en la escuela. Para asegurarnos que todos usemos la destreza de la vida de responsabilidad, cada estudiante y uno de sus padres/tutores tendrán que asistir a una sesión de información sobre los Chromebooks de 30 minutes en el auditorio de E. A. Hall. En esta junta, padres y estudiantes firmaran un contrato que dará permiso que los estudiantes usen el Chromebook en enero. Tenemos 3 juntas para cada grado, y hemos intentado hacer acomodaciones para los horarios de trabajo de los padres. ¡Es muy importante que asistan a una de estas juntas!
