Hello Hage Families,

---------- January 29, 2022 ----------

This is Mr. Lee with your Sunday Message and updates. A huge shout-out to all Hage families that supported our APEX Fun Run fundraiser (largest fundraiser of the year).  The amount we collectively raised is still being counted but we definitely exceeded all expectations and broke our previous record this year.  Since we met our goal, Mr. Lee will be dressing in pink and will be slimed in front of the whole school.  More info to come on when this will take place.  Another shout-out to our wonderful PTA and volunteers for putting on an amazing Science Night this past Friday.  Here's what is happening:

This is Mr. Lee with your Sunday Message and updates.  Wishing all Hage families that are celebrating the Year of the Rabbit or Year of the Cat (Vietnamese) a happy New Year.  Here's what is happening:

  • Jan. 23-26:  APEX Fun Run.  Our largest fundraiser of the year.  Proceeds go to support VAPA, Swim Program, reading programs, classroom support, and more.  Please continue to share with family locally and beyond via email, social media, and more.  
  • Thu. Jan. 26: Fun Run Day.  Lace up your running shoes, Thursday is our Fun Run day.  We'll have volunteers, including some dedicated Marines coming to run with our Panthers as we look to raise as much money as possible for our school.  Parents are welcome to watch the fun from sidewalks and cheer on their Panthers.  Run times are below: 

TK/K/1st at 8am to 9am

2/3rd at 9am to 10am

4/5th at 10am to 11am

  • Thu. Jan. 26: Restaurant Fundraiser @ Chuck-E-Cheese starting at 12 PM Noon.  20% of your purchase will come back to our school.  Please see the attached flyer (CEC-22-0321_fundraiser_School-Flyer-Hage 1.26.2023.pdf) for more information and valuable coupons. 
  • Fri. Jan. 27: Family Science Night and PTA General Meeting.  Please join us starting at 5:30.  Please open the attached flyer for more information on 8CDDEA2C-4572-4FD1-AA60-8CD65F82396E.pdf.  Food options are available for purchase and will benefit 5th grade Promotion (Digital flyer (1).pdf).  Please Pre-order food by clicking on the following linkhttps://hage-elementary-school.square.site.

Here's a little bit of what you could expect:

  • What: The Fleet Science Center (FSC) will provide materials for 10 experiments, each with its own table. (Prior to the event, there will be two FSC educators onsite to train all volunteers and go over the details of each experiment. A background in science is NOT required! The educators will remain onsite throughout the event to assist as needed.)
  • When: Friday, Jan 27 | Volunteers should report at 5:30pm
  • Where: Hage Elementary auditorium

If you are interested in helping out at this event, please reply to: pta.hage@gmail.com

Events like this are an exciting way for the PTA to engage our school community, but they depend on volunteer support. Assuming there are enough volunteers, the goal would be to manage your time in such a way that you can also enjoy some of the event alongside your child(ren).  

Thank you so much for considering!

---------- January 15, 2022 ----------

This is Mr. Lee with your Sunday Message and updates.  Tomorrow Jan. 16, school is closed in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day.  In honor of Dr. King's legacy, we ask all Panthers to find ways to serve others and our community.  Here's what is happening:
Jan. 17-26:  APEX Fun Run.  Our largest fundraiser of the year.  Proceeds go to support VAPA, Swim Program, reading programs, classroom support, and more.  
Wed. Jan. 18: Additional Minimum Day- Dismissal at 12 Pm Noon.  Please plan accordingly. 
In recognition of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, all San Diego Unified School District schools and offices will be closed Monday, January 16.
The federal holiday takes place on the third Monday of January each year, marking the birthday of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.
Born on January 15, 1929, King led the civil rights movement in the United States from the mid-1950s until his death by assassination in 1968. His leadership was fundamental in advancing civil rights for people of color and ending the legal segregation of African Americans in the South and other parts of the United States.
However, the King holiday we now celebrate each year faced a long road to recognition.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day didn't become a federal holiday until 1986, nearly 20 years after it was introduced to Congress. Even then, it faced an upward battle for all states to recognize the holiday, only getting nationally recognized in 2000.
Today, Martin Luther King Jr. Day is also federally designated as a National Day of Service, and encourages Americans to volunteer or give back to their communities in a meaningful way. To learn more and celebrate, see:
History of the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday

Other MLK Day Events in San Diego County
Calendar Updates:
Sun. Jan. 22: Lunar New Year
Thu. Jan. 26: Restaurant Fundraiser @ Chuck-E-Cheese starting at 12 PM Noon.

  • For more information, please visit our website https://www.hagepta.org/news-updates

Additional Info:

  • Before break, the district provided all students and staff with at-home COVID-19 test kits to help our school communities have greater peace of mind about returning to school safely on Tuesday, Jan. 3 after the winter break.

 The California Department of Public Health now recommends self testing for COVID-19 the day before coming back to school and two or three days after returning. We encourage students and staff to test on Monday, Jan. 2 and again on either Wednesday, Jan 4 or Thursday, Jan 5.

Testing before returning to school is recommended but not required. Additional test kits for students and staff are available at the Ed Center COVID-19 testing facility. If you test positive for COVID-19, please do not attend school and report your illness here.

Please do not send your child to school if they are feeling sick or experiencing symptoms of any cold-like virus, until those symptoms start to improve and there is no fever for 24 hours (without use of fever-reducing medication). Keeping your sick child home will be a great benefit for the health and wellness of our students and staff.

What Symptoms to Look For

  • The flu and COVID-19 are both spread from person-to-person, especially indoors and in crowded places. Symptoms for both viruses can include nasal congestion, fever, headache, and muscle and joint pain, as well as a sore throat and coughing.
  • RSV is a respiratory virus that has been detected in previous cold and flu seasons. Symptoms of RSV include cough, runny nose, and fever. Treatment consists of managing symptoms.
  • Tips to Avoid Getting Sick [English | Español)
    Public health officials offer these tips to prevent getting sick:
  • Consider wearing a well-fitting, good-quality mask, especially indoors or in crowded spaces
  • Wash hands thoroughly and often
  • Use hand sanitizers, if unable to wash hands
  • Stay away from sick people
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Clean commonly touched surfaces and/or wash/sanitize your hands after using them.
  • Stay up to date on COVID-19 and flu vaccines

Thank you and have a great night.

Message from Nursing and Wellness:

Dear San Diego Unified families and colleagues,

As we approach Thanksgiving break, and winter break shortly after, we want to remind all staff, students and their families to take precautions to stay well during the holiday season. During this time, when many families will be traveling and/or gathering with friends and family, illnesses such as the influenza virus (flu), respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), COVID-19, and the common cold can easily spread. 

The district is providing all students and staff with at-home COVID-19 test kits to help our school communities have greater peace of mind about returning to school safely after the break. We encourage students and staff to test on the last Friday (November 25) of the break and on Monday morning (November 28) before returning to campus. Testing before returning to school is recommended but not required. Additional test kits for students and staff are available at the Ed Center COVID-19 testing facility. If you test positive for COVID-19, please do not attend school and report your illness here.

As a reminder, please do not send your child to school if they are feeling sick or experiencing symptoms of any cold-like virus, until those symptoms start to improve and there is no fever for 24 hours (without use of fever-reducing medication). Keeping your sick child home will be a great benefit for the health and wellness of our students and staff.

What Symptoms to Look For

  • The flu and COVID-19 are both spread from person-to-person, especially indoors and in crowded places. Symptoms for both viruses can include fever, headache, and muscle and joint pain, as well as a sore throat and coughing.
  • RSV is a respiratory virus that has been detected in previous cold and flu seasons. Symptoms of RSV include cough, runny nose, and fever. Treatment consists of managing symptoms.

Tips to Avoid Getting Sick
San Diego County health officials offer these tips to prevent getting sick:

  • Consider wearing a well-fitting, good-quality mask, especially indoors or in crowded spaces
  • Wash hands thoroughly and often
  • Use hand sanitizers, if unable to wash hands
  • Stay away from sick people
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Clean commonly touched surfaces and/or wash/sanitize your hands after using them.
  • Stay up to date on COVID-19 and flu vaccines

Thank you for your partnership in helping us keep our students and staff healthy. If you have questions about these topics, please call 211 or contact your school nurse. We thank you for your cooperation and support. 

 

Sincerely,

District Recognizes Filipino American History Month, Celebrates 35 Years of Filipino Language Program

San Diego Unified is proud to recognize October as Filipino American History Month — an opportunity to learn and appreciate the significant role Filipinos have played in American history, and to learn more about Filipino culture and contributions.

On Tuesday the Board of Education issued a proclamation recognizing Filipino American History Month and celebrating the 35th year of the district's Filipino language program. The proclamation also honored the important role of organizations such as the Filipino American Educators Association of San Diego County (FILAMEDA) in creating and supporting this language program.



Filipino Americans are the second largest Asian American group in the nation and the third largest ethnic group in California, and San Diego Unified currently serves nearly 5,000 Filipino American students across the district.

The celebration of Filipino American History Month in October commemorates the first recorded presence of Filipinos in the continental United States, which occurred on October 18, 1587, in what is now Morro Bay, California.  Learn More

---------- September 11, 2022 ----------

This is Mr. Lee with your Sunday Message and updates for the week.  The weather forecast shows this week's temperatures will be cooling down and we are getting back to more seasonal temperatures in the low 80's.  As you prepare to send your students to school, remember labeling reusable water bottles, clothing, and other personal items will help get these items back to your students if things are misplaced.  Here's what is happening:

  • Sun. 9/11: Annually on Sept. 11th we honor those that lost their lives in the 9/11 attacks.  We will never forget. 
  • Wed. 9/14: Additional Minimum Day.  Dismissal is at Noon on Wed. and Thurs. this week.  Please plan accordingly.
  • Thurs. 9/15: Hage Restaurant Fundraiser at 40 N Pho and Grill Noon until 8 PM.  Please present the attached flyer (Hage Fundraiser Sep 2022.pdf) at time of purchase to get 10% of your total donated back to Hage.  Great food and money for our school is a Win-Win.  
  • Fri. 9/16:  Hage Family Event at Rock N Jump from 5-7 PM.  Please mark your calendars to join fellow Hage Panthers for some jumping fun.  At purchase, let them know you are from Hage.  
  • Info from the Main Office:  This week students will be receiving a packet containing forms that parents/guardians need to review and complete for their student(s).  

Each student will receive:  

  1. 2022/2023 Enrollment Verification/Registration Form -- parents/guardians need to review, make any necessary corrections, then sign and date the form
  2. Health Form -- parents/guardians need to complete for the school nurse
  3. Universal Form -- parents/guardians need to complete, especially the photo release portion
  4. 2022/2023 Facts for Parents Booklet -- for parents/guardians to keep and read
  5. Student's Parent Portal Information -- only new students or those who do not have a parent portal accounts need to create one                      

The forms are due no later than Friday, 9/16/2022.  Thank you for your support.  

PTA updates: 

  • Parents interested in volunteering with the PTA, please email (pta.hage@gmail.com) directly or complete this quick google form.
  • We need your support in joining our PTA and Panther Partnership.  These are two great ways to support our school and our students.  We need you to help make our school even better for our students.  Please see the attached flyers for more info: Join PTA flyer.pdf and 2022-23 Panther Partnership flyers.pdf.  Joining PTA is only $12 and our Panther Partnership commitment can be as low as $5 a month.  

Additional info:

  • Our traffic flow is getting better everyday and it will take us all to continue to make it better.  Here are suggested ways to help us increase efficiency:
  1. Grades UTK-1 are the only families required to pick up their student 1-1.  This is crucial for safety of our youngest learners.  The designated area to the left of the Lunch court gate is meant for UTK-1 families only.  
  2. Grades 2-5 families, we strongly recommend you to make arrangements with their students ahead of time to designate a pick up area.  Having a designated place will reduce anxiety and crowding while students look for caregivers.  If you choose to park, please wait by your car (preferred) or to the side of the drive up lanes.  
  3. We strongly encourage caregivers of 2-5th grade students that drive to use of the drive up lanes or park and wait by your car.  Standing by the dismissal gate and looking for your student creates more crowding.  

Thank you for your help.

This is Mr. Lee with your Sunday Message and updates for the week.  Thank you for your support throughout the first week of school; it was fantastic having students and families back at Hage.  Our Panthers are learning important routines in these early days of the school year and I am proud to say they are doing a great job.  Families you are also familiarizing yourself with the routines of school and we appreciate your efforts, patience, and understanding.  Here's what is happening:

---------- August 28, 2022 ----------

This is Mr. Lee with your Sunday Message and updates for the week.  We are excited to welcome our families and students to the first day of school.  It will be the busiest drop-off day of the year and I suggest you walk or park outside of the school if you need to leave campus quickly.  As always, we encourage safe driving throughout our parking lots to ensure safety for all.  If you are driving onto campus there is a max 15 mph limit and we ask that you limit distractions while traveling.  It takes all of us to keep our community safe. 

On the first day, families are welcome to come onto campus to take pictures, capture memories, and walk their student to class.  If you choose to walk your student to class, we ask that you ease the transition by waving to them as they walk into class.  This will allow for a smooth transition and allow us to safely secure our campus as families exit.  After the first day, we will be securing campus and only allowing students to come in.  

If you are able to stay around til 8:10, we will be having a meet and greet with AP Ligon and I in the Aud.  

Please click on the links below to review the information and familiarize yourself with our procedures.  

Thank you and have a great night.
