Looking for a great one-shot volunteer opportunity that’s lots of fun and lets you spend time with your kids? Then mark your calendars now! On Thursday, June 1st, Hastings boys and girls will have a blast working as teams through a fun, high-energy (and sometimes wet!) Field Day course. We’ll need lots of volunteers to run the stations, take pictures, and cheer the students on. Volunteers can sign up here, be sure to go through the quick and painless CORI process if you haven’t already done so. (See Volunteer Requirements for the CORI form and instructions.)

We hope to see you there!

Minutes from 4/27 PTA Meeting

Minutes from the PTA meeting held on 4/27 have been posted. Principal Lipsitz gave a thorough overview of the classroom configuration for next year, answered questions, and gave a tour of the spaces in the building. It was very helpful to see the classrooms in question, and also to get further clarification, particularly on how the 2/3 combined classroom will function.
