Hello, Handley families! We have been preparing for our upcoming 1ST ANNUAL WALK-A-THON. This fundraiser is replacing the Catalog Sale. PLEASE BE SURE TO LOOK AT THE INFO THAT IS IN YOUR CHILD'S BOOK BAG! We are asking the students to GIVE ME 5. This means that if every student gets 5 people to donate $5 we will meet our goal.    Attached is the paperwork that was sent with your child.  We only have a short time to raise funds (money is due 10/7), so let's work together and make it possible to take an all-school, end-of-the-year field trip! If you have questions, please call the school. If you are reading this and want to donate but do not know a Handley student, call the school and we will assist you. P.S. This is a superhero theme, so EVERY student will receive a blue, superhero cape that has "HANDLEY SCHOOL" on the back to wear during the WALK-A-THON.

The Wellness Committee met on April 27, 2011, and formulated a policy addressing treats for classroom celebrations. The policy states:

“For the safety of all children, all treats furnished for students, including birthday treats, must be commercially purchased. These treats should be kept simple and in a form that is easy to pass out to students in the class.”
