Bam the Ram - Home & School Connection
Please utilize this online form to submit a positive referral so that Bam can leave an acknowledgement for your child on Monday mornings through the end of the school year. This connection encourages family involvement with our RAMS Way initiative. Bam visits on Monday mornings to drop off RAMS Way glitter stickers as a special acknowledgement. 
School Picnic
Hance Elementary will hold a picnic-style lunch in our outdoor classroom on June 2, weather permitting.
Students may bring a blanket or towel to sit on and enjoy the outdoors for lunch. Students may pack or buy their lunch following their normal routine. Lunch will not be provided by the PTO.  
Field Day Permission Slips
Please check your child’s backpack for the Field Day permission slip to enjoy an Outshine Bar from the Hance PTO! If you have not returned your permission slip, please do so as soon as possible. The deadline was Thursday, May 19. Thank you!
Thank you to the volunteers for signing up to assist on field day. Volunteers will be supporting and able to spectate the events. For safety and security reasons, additional spectators outside volunteers will not be permitted. Thank you for your cooperation in advance!
Waste-Free Lunch Days Continue
We will continue our Waste-Free Lunches as part of the recommendations from our building-level sustainability committee. A typical lunch day at Hance Elementary yields 10 bags of garbage. Our goal will be to cut the number of bags used in half. We are partnering with Sodexo for this initiative. Sodexo will be reducing waste by using reusable trays when possible. If you choose to pack your child’s lunch that day, please see the details in the Waste-Free image, which describes how to pack a waste-free lunch. You can also learn more on the EPA’s website by clicking here. We will also educate the students on this during the morning announcements! The days listed below will be considered waste free. We will advertise in the Flash and on post on our Hance Calendar!
Remaining Waste-Free Lunch Date
June 6
