Hankey Families- the initial RSVP link was not cooperating!  Our technological difficulties are now resolved. Please RSVP below!

Hankey K-8 is excited to be kicking off our annual Global Awareness project focusing on the idea that “HOPE DRIVES ACTION.” Dean Jacobs; world traveler, author and inquirer, will be visiting the campus on Monday, September 26, meeting with students throughout the day to engage them in his “Wondrous Journey- A two year journey that crossed 28 countries.” Dean’s presentations, weaving together uplifting stories and visual images, will help our students create a foundation of hope, upon which they will be taking action throughout the rest of this school year.

 

Parents- Dean and I cordially invited you to attend a Hope Drives Action Parent Information Night, scheduled for Monday, September 26, from 6:30-7:30 pm in our MPR.  Dean will share his adventures, explain how to take the IB Learner Profiles and bring them alive at home, and light the flames of Hope Drives Action within you as well!

The Mission Viejo Community of Character Youth Committee is hosting an open house on Wednesday night, September 7.  While most of our committee members come from the high schools, we do sometimes have eighth graders and we would like to get more involved.  Our committee members learn valuable project and time management techniques, improve listening and communication skills, and practice leadership in a variety of character-based projects they either develop or for which they choose to contribute.  All of these projects are meant to impact our community in a positive manner and to promote Mission Viejo’s 12 character traits.

 

We encourage eighth graders and their parents to learn about COC.  Members typically come for community service hours and end up enjoying the experience so much that they continue regardless of the community hours.  Our alumni typically attend top notch universities.

 

Thank you in advance for your support and assistance.

Welcome back to school!

The staff and I are very excited to begin our 2016-17 school journey with you and your family!  I know that if you are an elementary parent, you may have experienced some confusion on Friday afternoon when the automated calls went out.  Please do not worry!  You can go onto the portal and the information regarding this year's teacher and room number is accurate.  If you are unable to access the portal, do not be concerned.  My staff and I will be out on front and on the blacktop tomorrow beginning at 7:45  with information regarding your child's teacher and room number.  Please look for me, Mrs. Hensley, Mrs. Bougrab or Mrs. Sabina...we can all help you quickly locate your new teacher.

 

If you are a middle school parent- our new students are meeting with Mrs. Brennan in the MPR (your child should have received an invitation attached to his or her schedule at Registration.) Returning middle school students will assemble at their normal waiting area until the bell rings.  Again, staff members will be out in front helping you.

Please remember that traffic will be heavier than normal, so come a little earlier, and park out on the street.  Numbered spots are reserved for staff members.
