Welcome to Hansen School!
Welcome to the 2023-24 school year! My name is Amy Slevcove, and I am proud to serve as your child’s principal. At Hansen, we believe that every child has unique talents and abilities waiting to be nurtured. Our dedicated team of educators strives to create a supportive and inclusive environment where each student can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. We are commited to providing a well-rounded education that not only focuses on academic excellence, but also promotes character development, critical thinking, and creativity.
Hansen Huskies are full of P.R.I.D.E.! We “pride” ourselves on implementing the Hansen motto: Politeness, Respect, Integrity, Determination, and Enthusiasm. These five simple character traits are the building blocks that will enable our students to navigate challenges and become responsible global citizens.
Our excellent staff provides quality instruction, focusing on the Common Core State Standards and encourages students to collaborate and take an active role in their learning. Our instructional practices provide all Huskies with a rigorous and enriching academic experience.
Our goal is that all of our students develop and maintain a love for learning! We are continuing our focus on Benchmark Advance, including working with students toward mastering academic vocabulary, becoming fluent readers, and using their writing skills for effective communication. These are critical to a student’s continued success in their educational journey!
We can't help but let our PRIDE show in the tremendous progress of our students! We continue to witness an even higher standard of excellence this year, and are continuing to provide the support and leadership needed to meet these goals. It is our goal to provide our students with the necessary skills to become proficient 21st Century Learners. Teachers are excited to continue to implement our Common Core aligned comprehensive ELA/ELD curriculum in addition to the iReady intervention program.
We believe that parent/guardian involvement plays a pivotal role in a child’s educational journey. At Hansen, parents/guardians have the opportunity to be an integral part of the school community. We invite you to join our PTA, WATCH D.O.G.S, and attend our fun school events, such as the Fall Festival, Reach the Reader, and Talent Show to name a few. With your support, we can continue to foster a strong sense of community and partnership between home and school, which creates a powerful support system for our students.
I am looking forward to a fantastic school year! Go Huskies!
