Happy 2018 Hubbell Families!

We have been lucky so far this winter to have no weather interruptions to our school days! But the cold air is here, and the snow machine seems to be pretty active; please make sure you tune into the local television and radio stations on days with questionable weather, as well as the Bristol Public Schools website for up to date information! Bristol has a set delay schedule, always a 2 hour delay; so please follow your morning schedule, just adjusted by two hours, with drop off at 10:35 and school start at 11:05. We do not serve breakfast on these days since the lunch waves begin as usual, at 11:40.

This year Hubbell was fortunate to receive some grant money to schedule science related activities for each grade level. From January to May, grade levels from preK to 5 will have either a classroom presentation or small grade level assembly to connect to the new NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards). The presentations will be brought to us by the Children’s Science Museum of West Hartford. We look forward to these mini “in house fieldtrips” as they add to the learning experience and stimulate our students thinking!

To help us beat the winter doldrums, we had a December door decorating celebration! From snowflake festivals to solving math problems on the ski slopes, we have some amazing doors that even spilled over into hallways to keep us smiling all the way to spring! Enjoy a few photos!
