From the Desk of the Principal

Welcome back to a new school year!  We are off to a great start with a variety of new and innovating programs coming your way.  As you are aware, Hungerford is in the candidacy phase of implementing the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme.  The program prepares students to become active, caring, lifelong learners who demonstrate respect for themselves and others while having the capacity to participate in the world around them.  Hungerford will also have a STEM program with an aviation focus.  The STEM component is an opportunity for students to enhance the standard PYP curriculum.  These STEM opportunities will provide a foundation for technology, engineering, and math.  As you can see, we have planned an exciting year of learning for your child.  Our job is to help each child find their own potential and success.  We will lead our students to success with the support and involvement of families and the community.

Hungerford is your child's second home.  We want the children to feel they are safe and a part of our family.  We also want you to feel comfortable in communicating with us.  We invite you to stay in close contact with the teacher of your son/daughter through planners, voicemail, or email.  When parents and teachers communicate consistently and positively, it naturally results in success and happiness for the children.  Doing well means the teachers, students, and parents work together effectively to make sure learning is taking place all year.  We look forward to keeping that partnership active and successful.

Thank you for all your support as we continue to build on success!

Mrs. Harris
