Hype Spa Day 2024

Posted on

Mrs. King and her class prepared an amazing spa day for all of the students to enjoy! I wish everyone could have seen the smiles on their faces the way we did! Thank you Mrs. King for the great morning and a special thank you to Shaima and Khadija’s family for the henna!

We had a blast at the class picnic today! Thank you to everyone who donated food, supplies or money to help make it a success. It was our best one yet!

Location Change:

We wanted to let you know of a change in location for our classroom. We have so many incoming students, they will be opening a 4th classroom next year. Since there is not room for that classroom here at Hype, two classrooms will be located at Hype, and two classrooms will be located in another building, most likely Howe/MBCC. Ms. Cote and her students will be moving and I will be staying here at Hype with mine. We have already been talking about how we plan to get the whole “gang” back together with different activities next year. While it is a sad time, Ms. Cote and I have been working as a team for 10 years, it is also exciting as we will think about things in new ways and come up with new ideas. Ms. Cote will be making calls to families today and Thursday to notify you if your student is moving to the new location.

Rest of the week:

June 5th – Pamper/Spa day – wear sandals, flip flops if possible. Mrs. King is hosting a spa party for all of our classes. Students will get pedicures and manicures, facials, and other spa treatments. We will have special activities for the men as well.

June 6th – Talent Show – come dressed as a star! Students can sign up to show off a special talent – come dressed the part!

June 7th – Last Day – half day dismissal!

Unless something comes up this week, this will probably be the last blog post of the year. It has been an honor working with your sons and daughters. They bring us so much joy on a daily basis! We hope you have a fun and safe summer! See you in the fall!

(PS First day of school next year is August 26th and it will be a half day)

  • Wear sunscreen, hat or both
  • Bring a water bottle
  • Tennis shoes – no sandals
  • Lunch will be served
  • Bring two snacks for the day – 1 for the morning and 1 for the afternoon.

We are looking forward to a great time!

Just a few reminders before we head into the Memorial Day Weekend!

Picking students up early – Just a friendly reminder, if we are unable to reply to your text in a reasonable amount of time, please walk in to the front desk and they will contact us to send the student down. We try to be quick to reply, but sometimes we are short staffed or involved with a lesson. Please do not text/call staff members on their personal phones.

Upcoming Events:

May 28th – Ice Cream Sandwich/Sundae Bar – students will enjoy this treat after lunch on Tuesday. We will be having a little fun in class in lieu of going out to CBI on Tuesday.

May 30th – Field Day at EFHS. Please be sure to wear layers, hats, sunscreen and bring your water bottles. Lunch will be served, but students may wish to bring a snack for the afternoon.

May 31st – Last day of job sites

June 4th – Class picnic at Hines Park. Thank you so much for signing up and sending in donations to make this possible. Please send items in by Monday, June 3rd. Again – THANK YOU!!! We couldn’t do this without you! It’s one of our favorite events of the year! (Rain date: June 6)

June 7th – Last Day of School – 1/2 day! Dismissal at 11:30

Sad News

Posted on

We received word today, that a former student passed away last week. The news came through “the grapevine” as some of the students arrived this morning, and we were able to confirm with a reliable source a short while later. We made a formal announcement to the students this afternoon and shared some tears together. While I don’t want to share her name publicly, most of the students have known her for a long time. She was a wonderful student, very loving and kind, and always made us smile. We send her family our condolences, may she rest in peace.

Hello! Time got away from me this afternoon so I will keep this short. Due to an oversight on our part, we did not have busing to attend our weekly job sites today. This time of year, the buses are used for high school students who have testing and half days. We will not have CBI on Tuesday April 16th for the same reason, and we will resume our normal schedule on April 17th. Because of this, some students had lunch and others did not – so students were treated to pizza for lunch today! Most will probably bring home their packed lunch, unless they decided to eat it during a break!

Please don’t forget about the parent meeting next Tuesday the 16th – see previous blog post for details. This will be full of great information and is recommended for every parent! It will be right here at Hype at 10 a.m.!

Other than early release on Tuesdays, there are no upcoming dates this month that you need to be aware of, but please see the previous post for the days we have scheduled through the end of the year. I will attach it again next week.

Have a great weekend!
