  • HBMS New Open House!

    Posted by Chandra Kwayzer on 4/17/2019
    Mark your calendars!
    Hannah Palooza is coming May 2!! We are excited to offer a new format for our Spring Open House this year at HBMS based on feedback we have received from our stakeholders.  We have made some changes to better showcase the academic and extra-curricular activities at our school. This change will also better accommodate the number of HBMS families and many busy spring schedules.
    We will open our doors for a true "open house" longer period of time (4 hours) for a drop in experience. We will use this time to showcase all of the academics and activities that make Hannah Beardsley a special place to learn. We will also have food trucks! All teachers will take shifts to be available to host this open house. Note: Not all staff will be in attendance for the entire Open House.
    A pamphlet will be sent home and posted on our website, so you can see the activities and periods of staff attendance.  We will also publicize this event using social media and school announcements. 
    We are excited to offer some unique experiences in this new format and open our doors to invite our community in! Mark your calendars and plan to attend May 2nd!
    Stay tuned for more details coming your way!
