DECEMBER NEWSLETTER
- HEMLOCK SCHOOL-

Hello Hemlock families,

November was a busy month at Hemlock.  Our Veterans Day assembly on Thurs. 11/9 was a huge success.  There were 9 grandfathers, and uncle and even a great-grandfather who spoke to the children about their experiences. The whole school sat and listened intently for almost 2 hours.  Parent teacher conferences were scheduled and attended this month.  We also celebrated Thanksgiving with each first grade class hosting a feast on Mon. 11/20.  The children were treated to delicious soup made from vegetables grown in our very own garden and cooked up lovingly by Mrs. Bellovin. Tues., 11/21  was also the 50th day of school.  The excitement was contagious and our wonderful teachers and staff dressed up to mark this first milestone of the school year.
