Dear Hart Families,


WOW! We have reached the end of the '21 - '22 school year.  I am incredibly proud of our community's journey this year.  We have come together as one, we have grown emotionally, socially, and academically.  


Today, we had the opportunity to celebrate our 4th graders. We kicked off our morning with Dashing out with Donuts, then their awards, and finished with the bash.  I loved their awards.  Each student shared their name, the character trait that their peers voted for them, other character traits, and their favorite memory.  Some of their favorite memories included: making new friends, stretching their brain, field day yesterday, Author Visit, and many more.  Each student made a keepsake wordle that shared their character traits and memories.  Below, you can see some of our amazing 4th graders.  

A big thank you to our 4th grade parents and the PTO for throwing our 4th graders an amazing bash.  From water slides to slip-in-slide to yummy food, fun was had by all!  

Tomorrow, we will finish strong with HartBeat, our End of Year Parties, and the 4th Grade Walk.  If you have a Team Alis shirt, we encourage you to wear it tomorrow.  We are going to record Ms. Alis a special message at the end of HartBeat.


We hope that everyone has a happy and safe summer making fantastic memories with their friends and family. 


All My Best,

Wendy Craft
