Hello Havens Families!


My name is Katie Castles Shaffer and I'm so pleased to introduce myself to you as your new Havens Parents Club President.  Your kids may know me as their substitute Ms. Castles.  You may remember me from my past role as lunch lady.  Behind the scenes I was also serving as Vice President and absorbing all that I could from last year's amazing leadership.  My daughter Evelyn (Evie) Shaffer is in 4th grade this year and I also have two younger kiddos, Emma (3) and Drew (1.5).  While you start to do the math for how many MORE years I have to look forward to as a Havens parent, I'll go ahead and add that Havens was where I went to elementary school, too...this school and I have history and a future!

The following are some summer updates:

  • Becker Field is being replaced!  If you've driven by, you've seen the amazing project.  As a friendly reminder, adult activity is not permitted on the field.  The turf is intended for children's play only.  So if you see a grown-up game of ultimate frisbee or soccer taking place, please point out the signs that they should take their game elsewhere.

  • Don't forget to complete your Read-a-thon goals!  This program is not only an amazing way to keep your kiddo reading over the summer, but it is also a nice fundraiser for Havens.

Looking ahead to the school year:

  • Please join the Havens Parent Club! The more families that join HPC, the more voices and perspectives we can include in our school dialog, programs and events.  Your membership also helps fund all the amazing programs we do at school, from our community festivals to our teacher appreciation lunches.  There are lots of opportunities to get involved, including leadership and volunteer positions.  Join us and see what it's all about!

  • Please read Havens Highlights every week!  This is your most important source of school information.


Have a happy summer!  See you in Aug!

Thank you,

Katie Castles Shaffer
