Hartford Memorial Middle School Newsletter
Week of June 16, 2017


Happy Summer Vacation!  We could not have asked for better weather for our last few days of school--only two ridiculously hot days all spring, and Wednesday and Thursday were the ideal summer days.  8th grade graduation was finally back outside after years of being forced in by rain, and field day and the 8th grade trip were perfect.  It was an amazing way to end an incredible year!

As we all head off for summer, I want to take a moment to say thank you.  Thank you for supporting your kids, for teaming with us as a school, and for making Hartford such a strong and wonderful community for children to grow up in.  Last week at the district retirement reception, school board chair, Kevin Christie, opened the reception with some words about the strength of the Hartford spirit that rang so true to me.  Thank you for creating a community that makes me excited every day to come to work, and for sharing your children, who every day inspire and challenge us to be better for them.  

Enjoy your summer, take time to relax and rejuvenate, make some lasting memories with your kids.  We will do the same, and be ready and waiting with open arms this fall to welcome back the kids that we will miss this summer and embrace the new students we cannot wait to get to know.

Virtual Visits in French Class

During these last couple of weeks of school, seventh grade French students worked on creating a slide show to send to their pen pals in Wissembourg, France. We shared pictures, video, and some simple French sentences telling about our school, and students each made a slide to tell a bit about themselves. In return, our pen pals sent us a presentation about their school and a bit about themselves.  Their slide show arrived just in time for us to watch on the last day of class. It was a fun way to end the year.
