Dear Hart Families,

Tomorrow, November 13, is the last day to drop off letters for the Lovejoy Letter Campaign. We have bins placed at each entrance to the building. This is a Lovejoy tradition that has been going on for 7 years! We all enjoy reading the kinds words shared with us.

Another upcoming event is the Holly Jolly 5K and Fun Run. This was formerly known as the Rudolph Run and Donner Dash. This year, the event will be virtual. Please click here for more information. When registering, please remember to select Hart Elementary. Hart will be awarded $5.00 for every entry. In order for Hart to receive credit, please register by November 15. Hart has held the trophy for the highest number of participants for 10 years in a row. Will you help us make it 11?

As we near the 3rd Nine Weeks, it is time to start to think about the learning environment selection. The window to make changes will be open November 20 through December 7. More information to come next week.

As always, please feel free to contact us.

Each teacher has selected books they would like to add to their classroom library. If you prefer, you can also send a teacher a book fair gift card. Follett has also provided a nifty video with helpful information about the virtual book fair. Books will be sent to the school and distributed by December 16th, just in time for the holidays!

With every purchase, Hart earns 25% back in rewards. We use these rewards to grow our library and provide new and exciting books to all students.

Notes from Nurse Allison
As we move further into the cold/flu season, please use this document for assessing whether your child is experiencing Covid-19 symptoms. Please click here to access the LISD Planning Guide. The planning guide is a valuable tool that can answer many of the questions and concerns regarding LISD policy. This document also reviews the exposure ("close contact") guidelines to follow. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. allison_wright@lovejoyisd.net
Lovejoy Letter Campaign
Lovejoy Family!! The 7th annual Lovejoy Letter Campaign for teachers and staff members has begun! Many of you are familiar with this beloved tradition, but for those of you who are not, it is the time of year when we write appreciation letters for each of our teachers and staff members across the district. 
 
The letters do not have to be elaborate or lengthy. The goal is just for people to write a note of thanks to show appreciation to their teachers, the staff and administration in our district. It is the opportunity for us to take the time to let each person who makes a difference for us throughout the school day know how much we value them.

Please clearly label the envelope with the staff/teacher’s name and LLC (Lovejoy Letter Campaign) and return the letter to the box located at specified location of each campus no later than Friday November 13th. Please feel free to share this message as we spread the word about the campaign. We do not want to add any extra burden to our kids and parents, but we do want to share how much we appreciate our teachers and staff - especially this year in these very unusual times!
