Principal's Message - Mrs. Christian

It's the most wonderful time of the year, and we are enjoying many exciting activities with students this month such as the Learn to Swim Program with 4th grade, Christmas Concert for K-3, Pictures with Santa, and Candy Cane Grams! Make sure to check out the calendar below for several important dates!


A couple of updates and announcements:



  • We have received some beautiful risers for our students to use during programs on the stage. This has caused us to need to move the tables we were using for parents visiting during lunch.
  • Santa Pictures this Wednesday. Return form and money to your child's teacher.
  • Fall Picture Retakes on the 10th! If your child missed picture day in the fall, they have chance to retake those the Friday.
  • Christmas Parties will be on the 17th from 11:00-12:00 . Please look for information from your child's teacher about donations for the party.
  • We are looking forward to the Christmas concert on the 14th. Our K, 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders will be performing, as well as our own HPG Cheerleaders!


We wish you and your families a safe and wonderful holiday season!


Courtney Christian, Principal
