Principal's Message:

The Hall School Construction Committee had its first meeting on Jan. 7th.  Within the next six months we will be meeting on a regular basis in order to complete the necessary steps to design an elementary school that will meet the needs of our students for many decades.  One critical component of this work will be to get input from our Hall School families.  To this end, we will be hosting a Parent Forum on January 27th in the Hall School Gymnasium at 6:00 PM.

This Parent Forum/Charrette will NOT be a typical presentation or “sit and get” informational session.  Rather, this will be a real hands-on, interactive session that will allow families to speak directly to the architects tasked with making our dreams come true for our current and future Hall School students.  Please come to this meeting with the goal of sharing your ideas about any aspect of the project:

  • Parking and Traffic Flow Patterns (Drop off and Pick-up)
  • Playgrounds and Outdoor Educational Spaces
  • Main Entrance and Office Area
  • Greening Options
  • Classroom Design and Internal Educational Spaces
  • School Boundaries and Security
  • Technology and Library / Media
  • Cafeteria, Gym, and Performance Spaces

The more voices / opinions we have represented at this Forum/Charrette, the better our school design will be, and the better the educational experience will be for our children for years to come!

The ongoing work of the School Construction Committee will position us well for a November 2015 referendum and a September 2018 Grand Opening. I hope to see all of you there on Jan. 27th.

Respectfully,

Cynthia Remick, Hall School Principal
