Winter Holiday Celebrations At HBS

The weather outside is frightful, but our students have been delightful! Between our winter storms, HBS Pelicans found time to carol for neighbors from here to the Embassy Suites, bringing cheer to the Hollywood Beach community. Mr. Frank got the ball rolling with a Winter Showcase, and several classes jumped to join in the fun. Families were so caring and giving, providing treats to the staff for their hard work, and the joy and light in our students' hearts shone on their faces, as you can see! Thanks to all the wonderful HBS Staff for making the holiday merriment happen, and hugs to our HBS families for their thoughtful words, cards, and gifts this holiday season!
