Student journalists
Snelling Connection, a newspaper written by Hamline Elementary students with the support of Hamline University student mentors (photo right submitted), recently published its fall issue. With articles ranging from new staff profiles to Hamline’s new Animal Care Program, to the Fall Festival, it’s a kids-eye view of what’s happening and important at Hamline. The twelve 4th and 5th-grade student journalists meet twice a week with their university mentors to learn both interview and writing skills and are currently working on the spring issue.

Book Express great success
Children’s Book Express, a book-sharing program at Hamline Elementary, just wrapped up its first year and the numbers are spectacular: over 1,000 books collected from the community and nearly 800 chosen by Hamline students and their families to take home. (Photo left provided.) New additions to the sharing shelf and collection box are always greeted by eager and curious students, happily hunting for their next reading adventure. These books ignite a love of reading and help families build their home libraries; big thanks to all the families and neighbors whose ongoing donations make this possible.

Winter Warm Up
Families exploring their PreK-5 options in St. Paul are invited to meet and chat with Hamline staff, families, and community partners to learn more about the people, programming, and partnerships that make us one-of-a-kind in St. Paul at our Open House on Thur., Jan. 24, from 4:30-6:30pm. And while you’re visiting, be sure to join our school community for our annual Winter Warm Up with games and activities throughout the building and snacks in the cafeteria. All are welcome—we hope to see you there!
