Yearbook Order Deadline Extended to April 10th!

In an effort to boost school pride and strengthen our community during this difficult time, we are excited to announce that Wagner has extended the deadline to purchase a yearbook for families who have not yet had the chance to order. If you already ordered a yearbook, your order is safe and will be distributed at the end of the school year. If you would still like to place an order, go to: https://sales.yearbookmarket.com/stores/hixsonmiddleschool/products If you have any questions pertaining to the yearbook, please email Wagner at info@wagnerportraitgroup.com.

Kindergarten Information Night at Givens School

Kindergarten Information Night for those interested in enrolling their children at Dr. Henry Givens Jr. School will be held online from 6 to 7 p.m. Tues., April 7.
