Ms. Samar, HHK8 librarian, would like to have a special evening reading program with a “Reading is a Sweet Summer Treat” theme. Students and parents will enjoy Candyland decorations, special activities and games, and their favorite stuffed animals may even be invited to spend the night! We will be asking for specific food donations soon so we can provide some sweet treats that evening. We will ask for the donations as soon as Ms. Samar lets us know what she will need. As part of this program, Ms. Samar would like to give each child a book to take home and keep. If you or your children, grandchildren, or any other child would like to donate gently used (or even new) books, they are always appreciated at the school. Books can be hardback or paperback, and for any age group from pre-K to 8th grade. Please drop off any books in the office and attach a note or label reading HHK8 BOOKS. Thank you for your donations!
AND THIS FALL…
SSYRA -- We will once again be concentrating on literacy at HHK8 and the Sunshine Readers (SSYRA) program by purchasing individual books and class sets of 2022-2023 titles. This year was the first year the school tried this program, and because of our generosity it was a huge success. The new titles are not announced until late summer, so we will have more information in August, September, and October.
School supplies – The school receives many, many supplies from the general public. Therefore, we have asked what specific supplies teachers run out of before the end of the school year, and these are the most needed items:
Erasable wipe-off markers; hand sanitizer; glue sticks; Kleenex or other tissues.
