Principal's MessageDear Families of Mary Hanley School,As we move into February we pass the half-way point of the school year. An elementary school is always a busy place and the learning happening is incredible. When looking at the calendar, it is also one of the busiest months filled with activities and special events. From Groundhog Day and the 100th day of school to Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday, there are a great variety of activities happening in and around our school: Family dance, Faith Development Day for staff, Olympics and plenty of school events! Make sure to check out the February calendar for details.This month we take time to celebrate Friendship. Our leadership teams have identified this month as Friendship February. We look for ways to be a good friend, how to be friendly, and much more!At school this month we challenge our students to focus on kindness. Activities with buddy classes, surprise kindnesses, and helping others out without being asked are just a few ways we'll share kindness here. Take time to plan ideas like that into your family routines too. Remember this simple math: Hearts + Hands = JoyThanks for all you do to support your children in their education! Have a fantastic February!
