Hitchcock Announcements
Cash for Classrooms Grant
Hitchcock Receives Grant from
KETV and Kaplan University

Hitchcock has been awarded a Cash for Classrooms grant from KETV Kaplan University for our Dancing Classrooms program!

Click here to see the video from KETV News!

 
Dancing Classrooms is a social development program for 5th graders. Professional dancers will use ballroom dancing as a vehicle to cultivate essential life skills. Dance is a tool for getting children to break down social barriers, learn about honor and respect, treat others carefully, improve self-confidence, communicate and cooperate, and accept others even if they are different.
 
Thank you KETV & Kaplan for supporting this program!

Halloween Parties! 

All adults who choose to attend a classroom party will be considered volunteers and will be asked to help in the classroom. All volunteers will pre-register. The form was sent home in Friday folders and is available on our school website. Please return it to your child’s classroom teacher. We look forward to fabulous and safe Halloween Parties at Hitchcock Elementary.
