Yes…we have another snow day on FRIDAY 2/1/19.
Picture my big crocodile tears running down my cheeks! I AM SO DONE WITH SNOW DAYS!
THIS MEANS that I was not CLEAR enough when I said NO MORE of the following:
- NO MORE flushing ice cubes down the toilet (thank you to the parents who have already made this a rule).
- NO MORE wearing PJ’s inside out.
- NO MORE snow day dances.
- NO MORE wishing for a snow day.
- NO MORE spoons under pillows.
- NO MORE WISHING FOR SNOW DAYS. PERIOD.
So…back to the usual part of the snow day post. If you can get your child to read (read to them, have them read aloud or silently), or learn via mobymax or Raz Kids or Study Island, have them do it. If they are learning and you can’t enter it online, email your teacher.
Currently 70% (up 10% from Wednesday) of our student population has engaged in some sort of snow day learning.
Now that we have wrapped up the snow day post, I want to wish you a happy WINTER BREAK — yes, we do have Monday and Tuesday off. See you on Wednesday, February 6.
Encourage your child to do at least 30 minutes of learning (see below). Thanks to our AMAZING PTC (made possible by your WALK•A•THON Donations), $10 Barnes and Noble Gift Card (one per grade) will be given to randomly drawn students.
AND EXTRA special INCENTIVE:
I will provide a PRINCIPAL pizza party for the classroom that has the MOST PARTICIPANTS in SNOW DAY LEARNING. This will be total of all days of all learners who participated. SO…everyday you are at home this week, get online to enter your reading minutes OR go to MOBYMAX or RAZ KIDS to LEARN!
Options for learning:
- Read a book or two or three. ONLINE Learning record for reading minutes.
- Learning on MOBYMAX or RAZ-KIDS through Clever.com:
- Log into https://clever.com/in/hpseagles
- Select log into other google account.
- Type in district username followed by @hpsstudents.net
- Type in password – if your child doesn’t remember the password, choose TIME TO READ instead!
- Select Elementary Apps

Students have until 8 pm tonight to participate. (I opened the time period up thanks to a suggestion from a wonderful working parent!)
