We are in the final stretch of the 2017-18 school year.  Handley students and staff have worked hard all year to learn and grow into good students and good friends.  We will finish strong in May!  Handley has been recognized for our outstanding attendance. We are in the running for the elementary school with the best attendance all year.  Our goal is to have EVERY student at school EVERY day, EVERY minute the month of May.  Let's do it, Trojans!!

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.”
