Dear Hemlock Families,
Life at Hemlock is back in full swing. May was an extremely busy month with numerous special occasions to cap off our school year! The theme of this letter is THANK YOU. While we are so grateful to have the “full experience” again, I know it’s a lot of extra time and effort on your part to attend, volunteer and purchase necessary items. A huge thank you to the Hemlock community for your involvement! None of these events would have been possible without you!
Our students kicked off the month with two incredible Spring Sings! Thanks to a PTA grant, we enjoyed new sound system equipment. Ms. Glickman put on a hilariously cute performance for families to enjoy.
Thank you to so many parents who contributed to the Staff Appreciation Lunch on May 20th. We built off the theme of When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade! The staff enjoyed so many treats - including a mystery parent who baked dozens of extra large, extremely delicious cookies - please reveal yourself! The teachers and staff were all touched by the numerous notes of thanks written by all students. A special thank you to Danielle Kunzz and Hilary Hannan for chairing this event. It was a big success due to their efforts, commitment and design eye - and we are in place to make next year better!
Thank you to our Beautification Committee who worked with our children to line the walkways with American flags ahead of Memorial Day Weekend! The school looks so festive! Thank you to Leanne Clark and Kristen Whitaker for their second year as chair of this committee. They have done an absolutely amazing job and throughout the years to make Hemlock a special and inviting place for our children.
We were excited to bring back a new Lemonade moment, the Bagel & Book Breakfast/Field Day events. Parents were invited to enjoy delicious bagels from Pantanos Doz Bagels and our children showed off their Super Reader skills.
Good Luck to Our First Graders!
To our first grade students moving on to Stewart and Stratford, we wish you the best of luck! You and your families will always be part of the Hemlock family, and we cannot wait for the day you are able to come back and visit again!
To their families, thank you for all the time, energy and effort you have put into making Hemlock the special place it is! A tremendous THANK YOU to Melissa Nakos for working tirelessly to create the special first grade memory book for our children. The kids are sure to treasure it!
Thank You to Our Volunteers!
I’ve always been amazed by the support of our Hemlock families. You are always willing to pitch in to make Hemlock an amazing school. Your love for our school and our children is so greatly appreciated, and we thank you for contributing your time, talent and resources to Hemlock this past year.
A special thank you to our class parents and Hemlock PTA Board! I have loved working with each of you. I am grateful to have met so many new friends and had a lot of laughs through it all!
