Greetings Hanson Elementary School Family

Welcome back to the 2017-2018 school year! We’re happy to have our students returning to school and a special welcome to the new students and families joining our school.

The 2017-2018 school year for Hanson Elementary will be filled with lots of energy. Our schoolwide focus this year will continue to be on raising student achievement for our Hawks. In 2016, Hanson was honored with receiving the California Gold Ribbon and Title 1 Academic Achievement Award. I look forward to building on that success and continuing to foster high-achieving innovative thinkers.

I am so delighted to be the principal of Hanson Elementary. I am very passionate about education and I look forward to partnering with you to provide our students with a rigorous, engaging, and high-quality school experience. As the parent of two boys, I recognize the importance of a strong home-school connection. I believe that by working together, we can make sure your child's social, emotional and academic needs are met.

You are invited to be an active participant at Hanson Elementary. Whether you are a classroom volunteer, a member of the Parent Teachers Association (PTA) or School Site Council (SSC), special event participant, or a member of our English Language Acquisition Committee (ELAC), you are encouraged to be involved! Research on schools clearly demonstrates that parent participation in their child's school coincides with a greater likelihood of academic success for their child.

Here at Hanson we strive to create a safe and courteous environment. Kindness prevails and we respect each and every individual here on our campus.
Please feel free to share any important information with your child’s teacher so we may better serve your child and family. We believe that communication between parents, students, and teachers is critical for a successful year.

Again, welcome back and we look forward to an exciting and productive year here at HANSON!

Sincerely,
Christopher Gunnett
Principal
