Good evening Hallman Community!  This is Jessica Brenden, principal of Hallman Elementary School with your weekly Hallman message.  This week at Hallman, we have two days you need to know about.  The first is early release on Wednesday.  Students will get out of school at 12:30.  Please make a plan for dismissal.  On Friday, teachers have a grading day.  There is no school on Friday so teachers can work out grades to prepare for conferences later in the month.  In other news, you need to be aware that retake day is Tuesday, November 7.  Make note of that on your calendars.  I have some really happy news to share, also:  Our counselor, Mrs. Silbernagel, was nominated for a Crystal Apple Award.  There is a ceremony on November 2 for the Salem and Keizer communities to celebrate the recipients of both nominations and awards.  Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at the Elsinore Theater box office.  Also coming up soon is McTeacher’s night!  This is November 9 from 4:30 to 7:30 at the McDonald’s on Devonshire.  McTeacher’s night is a fundraiser for Outdoor School.  See you there! Last week, I shared that we get about 30 calls per day to change a child’s dismissal plan.  Please make those plans with your child before school starts so you can send in a note to tell us about any changes.  We appreciate the help! Finally, I want to let you know that our attendance rate is 94.7%, which is a little lower than the average of elementary schools in Salem. Let’s show the Salem community some Husky spirit by bringing up our attendance rate!  Thanks for listening and have a great evening!
