Dear Hart Families,

We have had a great week of learning at Hart Elementary. Our 3rd graders kicked off the week with their Living Museum celebrating their Biography Research unit. Our students did a great job of showcasing their learning. Here are some highlights from their day. Then today, they attended the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. It was so fun to see them all dressed up for their field trip.
Each year our PTO recognizes Outstand Service Awards. Our recipients are Debbie Nash and Hayley Hangartner. These ladies have amazing servant's hearts, and we are grateful for their service to our school. Please join me in congratulating them on this honor.
Debbie Nash cares for the students at Hart Elementary each day with so much love. She rarely has a break during the school day and tends to every need with a gentle touch and a smile. Debbie is so deserving of this award as she fits the description of “promoted students’ well-being and demonstrated care for children” perfectly every single day. Hart Elementary is a better place because of Debbie.
Hayley Hangartner has done a tremendous job planning and hosting events for Hart families and students. These events have been great opportunities to bring us all together. Hayley has been a shining example of what it means to serve joyfully and to make great events even better. Each event has enriched the students' and families' experiences at Hart this year!
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me. I hope that you have a fantastic weekend.

All My Best,
Wendy Craft

My mission is to be a servant leader who works with students, parents, and staff to build a community that fosters relationships and learning where everyone THRIVES. Each day, I strive to make the choice to be great versus comfortable, because you can't be both!
