On behalf of all of us, we wish you, your families and neighbors a very happy Thanksgiving. We know we have a lot to be thankful this year and are excited by the things to come. May you enjoy a happy, healthy holiday!

Enrollment for 2014-2015 begins next week!

Hale Cook enrollment open to kindergarten through second grade

Bring a friend and help us spread the word about enrollment which starts next week for the 2014-2015 school year. As part of our effort to help you make an informed decision about where to send your child, we are offering a great schedule of information sessions and coffees to learn more. The information sessions will include our KCPS Hale Cook Transition Coordinator Julie Lynch as a representative of our partners and she will be able accept your enrollment forms directly. The coffees are more casual and intended to give new parents a chance to meet existing Hale Cook parents, ask questions, and learn more. You are welcome to join us for any or ALL of these events – and please help us pass on this information to others who might be interested.

Open House at Hale Cook (7302 Pennsylvania) Construction begins next week!

  • February 2014 (to be announced)

Julie Lynch, Hale Cook Transition Coordinator is also generally available on Mondays at Hartman Elementary to receive your enrollment forms and answer questions.

Construction starts Dec. 1 – we have some yard work to do!

Would you be willing to help us move some mulch to make room for dumpsters?

KCPS will begin renovating Hale Cook next month and we’re so excited to see the building come to life. However, we know that we need to do our part by helping to move a pile of donated mulch so that trucks and dumpsters can be placed for construction. We need a few volunteers with shovels and wheelbarrows to help us move this pile – consider it a great opportunity to give back AND burn off a few calories this Thanksgiving weekend! If you are interested in helping either this weekend or next, please contact Susan Stocking and let her know. We appreciate your help!
