Hat Day Friday!!

Please see below! 👒🎩 

Hi everyone! My name is Madeline Bradner! As you all know I am one of the Senior Survivors this year at my school and we are trying to raise our goal of $80,000.This year we are donating all money collected to LACASA and FARA. LACASA is a locally founded charity that provides multiple services for our community such as counselling, crisis shelters, and education and prevention programs. FARA is a national nonprofit dedicated to research leading to treatments and a cure for Friedreich's ataxia, a disease that a student in our senior class has been diagnosed with.

Hutchings Elementary has offered to have a Hat Day to raise more money for my team, team MADBRAD!! This will take place on Friday 4/27. Recommended donations to wear a hat is $1, please!! Please encourage your kids to wear hats on Friday and to donate to these two charities! Thank you for all the support and hard work!

Fine Arts Tonight!!

Hi, families!  Students need to arrive at 6:15 pm.  Please do not bring them to the classroom before then, as there will be no supervision.  If you arrive before 6:15, please check out the Silent Auction in the Library!  At 6:15 students will need to line up in order outside the classroom by their lockers.  The show will begin promptly at 6:30, so drop them off at 6:15 and then go grab a good seat!  You can check out their artwork in the hallways after the music performance!  See you tonight! :)
