Welcome to Havel Elementary! 

 Home of the Hawks!

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Welcome to Havel Elementary School!
As demands and complexities of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to insure that our children reach their potential. We believe that all of us – the school and the community – must work together in an extended family environment to insure success for all our students. We believe it is everyone’s responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful and responsible.
With that in mind, you are invited to be an active participant at Havel. Whether you are a classroom volunteer, a member of the HVL, special event participation, or member of one of our school communities, 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.
It is our desire to keep you informed of all that is taking place at school. Up-to-date and additional information will be sent to you though emails and will appear on our school web page as well as our Facebook page. If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or me a call. I look forward to having a long and rewarding relationship with you and your family.
Mrs. Kristina Barel

    Havel Families,

    June is almost over and we are saying so long to our students, staff, and parents.  It has been a fantastic year filled with events that have brought us closer together.  We would like to thank you for your ongoing support throughout the year.  We could not offer such a rich education to our students without the continuing effort and support that you all give.

    We appreciate and thank all our volunteers for the countless hours involved in so many of the behind the scenes activities such as fundraising, work in the yard, assisting in the classrooms or office.

    With the end of the year also comes changes and family moves.  We would like to take this opportunity to wish those students and families leaving us this year all the best in their new schools and homes. 

    To our 6th graders, congratulations on your achievement.  The Havel staff wishes you all the best as you move to junior high school.  If this is your last child to leave Havel, the staff would like to thank you for your support and for the guidance that you have provided for your child(ren).  We look forward to hearing from the graduates in the future and we hope that each of them will have gained a firm foundation for their education while here at Havel.  We know that many of you will visit staff members at the school in the next few years.

     For those families who will be returning in September, school will begin on Tuesday, September 6th

    Take Note:
