Message from the Principal
Lacey Moser

Dear Hart Families,

It was so much fun seeing all of our Hart families at Meet the Teacher on Tuesday night. I've heard from every teacher that they not only have the best class of students, but they have the most amazing parents!!  Thank you for everything you do to partner with us in your child's education.

I am so excited the first day of school is finally here! Like you, the Moser family will spend the weekend (especially Sunday) preparing for Monday. We will do a little school clothes shopping, lay out our first day of school outfits, pack lunches in our new lunch boxes, and head to bed early to get a good night's sleep.  I still get butterflies the night before the first day of school in anticipation of the new school year. This is truly a special time of year!

If there is anything that needs attention, please don't hesitate to call me at 970-309-1581.  

With a Full HeART,
Lacey Moser

Lunchroom Visitors
No Lunch Visitors During the first 2 weeks of school
As in years past, I am asking that we not have any visitors in the lunchroom for the first week of school. The students will be learning new lunch room routines and procedures. Beginning Sept. 4, please join us any day for lunch.
 
Lunchroom Visitors 
You are welcome to have lunch with your child throughout the year. Please keep in mind that you may only bring food for your child to eat. We have many students on campus with food allergies and this will ensure that students are not put at risk. 

Afternoon Pick Up
Students will be dismissed at 3:10.  Car riders will either be dismissed to the South Side of the campus (last names beginning with A-L) or the North Side of the campus (last names beginning with M-Z).  Please have your car number visible so this procedure will go as smoothly as possible.  If your child is a walker, they will exit the North Side of the campus.  We will then release your child to you.  

Hart Announcements

Please note our new dismissal time. Our day is now extended by 5 minutes!

Dallas Metro-Engineering For Kids

Dear Parents, 

Engineering for Kids is proud to have been given the opportunity to offer our program again this school year at Hart Elementary. Based on feedback from you we have decided to separate the classes according to grade level. Grades 2-4 will have class on Monday and Grades K-1 will have class on Friday. This will allow us to provide an age specific program for the students. Information regarding Dallas Metro Engineering For Kids is enclosed in the Back to School paper packet. We look forward to an amazing semester with the young engineers!

Thank you, 
Anuj, 214-620-4640
