Good Morning Hammond Elementary Families,
As our staff and students prepare to depart for their summer break, I would like to commend everyone, students, staff, and families, for their commitment to our school year that was like none other. As a community we have repeatedly persevered through difficult times; however, this may be the year that has impacted our community, as a whole, with the greatest significance. We have greatly missed seeing the faces of our students, in person, during these last months of school. We forward to a time when we can be together again.
We would also like to send our best wishes to students who will not be returning to HES next year, including students going off to middle school and those students who will start the new year at Guilford Elementary School. Each of you will be missed tremendously and please know that we send you off with best wishes for continued success. We look forward to a day when our paths will cross again.
It has been a long standing tradition at Hammond Elementary to wave students off on their last day of school. We have always enjoyed the opportunity to stand outside, as an entire staff, and bid our students farewell. The staff felt strongly that this year, though not the same, should be no different.
Please take a moment to enjoy our farewell on this last day of school.
Wishing you a summer of good health, adventure and fun. Stay safe!
Ms. Ciarapica and the HES Staff Family
