I am writing to let you know that I have accepted a position at Sno Isle TECH Skills Center and today (2/10) is my last day at HPMS. I have thoroughly enjoyed my 16+ years at HPMS – five years as a parent volunteer and 11+ years as HP's Family Engagement Liaison.

I am grateful to have gotten to know so many of you! Thank you for sharing your time and talents, thank you for your generosity and support, and thank you for partnering with us to enrich the lives of our students.

It has been my good fortune to be a part of the HPMS community. Go Hawks!

Valentine's Day Message for HP Parents/Guardians

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching. Our primary focus as a school is to maintain a learning environment for all students. We appreciate your partnership to make sure this takes place.

On Valentine’s Day parents should not be dropping off items for delivery. For example, we won’t be delivering flowers, balloons, candy, stuffed animals, etc. to students. In addition to the deliveries, items such as those described above should be left at home and not transported to school. When students have these items at school it distracts from the learning environment. Students who are eager to bring something for a friend shall keep the item to hand size or smaller. If a gift item is larger than hand size, the exchange shall happen outside of school hours.

We appreciate your understanding that our primary responsibility is to maintain a learning environment for all our students. Thank you.

National Junior Honor Society News

The National Junior Honor Society is sponsoring a SOUP AND SOCKS Drive for the local FOOD BANK. The drop off bin can be found in the GREAT HALL. Items may be dropped off any time until THURSDAY, February 16th. Cans of soup to line up with the SUPER BOWL and socks for the chilly nights; all given to those in need and less fortunate than us!

At our February 9th meeting, the NJHS members made a valentine for each member of our school; a tradition that started a few years ago. The NJHS next meeting is scheduled for March 20th.

Questions or concerns? Please check in with Mrs. Giddens in N210 or Mrs. Riccardo in W210.

Thank you, Mrs. Riccardo

2022 - 2023 CLUBS & ACTIVITIES

HPMS offers a variety of after-school clubs supervised by HP staff members. All students are welcome to attend clubs. Most clubs begin at 2:50P and end at 3:50P. If your child takes the bus to and from school, they are considered a "regular bus rider" and they will be able to get a ride home on one of HP's activity buses after attending a staff supervised after-school club or activity. A bus pass will be required to ride the activity bus. Club advisors will distribute bus passes to students who participate in after-school activities. Activity buses depart from the front entrance of HPMS at approximately 4:05P. Please note: Most athletic practices end after 4:00P so the activity bus is not an option for those students participating in after-school sports teams.



Need to take an Activity Bus? Here is all the info you need:

  • Students must be a regular bus rider (live within the school bus boundaries)
  • There are two Activity Buses (a NORTH bus and a SOUTH bus).
  • Students need to know their address to get on the correct bus.
  • There are limited stops on the route, so it may not be your child's regular stop but somewhat close in proximity.
  • Students may ask the bus drivers to find out which bus they should take and what stop they should get off. Students need to know their home address.
  • This is NOT your student's regular bus route. Your student's arrival time home will be determined by the number of stops on any given day.
  • Activity Buses leave at approximately 4:10PM from the front of the school.
  • Activity Buses on All-School Party days will depart school later and arrive home later.

If you have questions, please call school at 425-366-5100

HP Music News

Don't forget 7th & 8th Grade Band Families...

Mr. Moody is requesting parent/guardian volunteers/chaperones for a variety of band events happening in March, April, and June 2023. If you did not receive the email, please email Mr. Moody at MoodySJ@mukilteo.wednet.edu know. We hope you will consider joining the fun!


Any last-minute packets to turn in? They will be accepted on Monday morning in W210.


Thanks to all the students who turned in their Spring Musical Audition packets. We had a wonderful turn out for the “Pre-Audition Class” The staff that are working on the show are excited for the work to begin!!!

This upcoming week is important for the groundwork of “Beauty and the Beast”. Monday and Tuesday we have the initial auditions from 2:45 to 5:00. We will start with Drama in the Choir Room, Music in the Practice Room and Dance down in the Great Hall. If you have a child auditioning, please have them look at the DRAMA BULLETIN BOARD right outside of the Student Services to confirm their times to tryout. If they listed a specific day on the audition packet, they have been assigned that date. If your son or daughter did not check a box, they are now assigned a day. They will be reminded to call home if there are any changes or concerns.

The “Call Back” list will be posted on the Drama Bulletin Board AND in W210, on Wednesday morning. At that point, if a student has made call backs, they will receive a second practice sheet for Thursday. CALL BACKS are THURSDAY, February 16th from 2:45 to 5:30. If a student wants to be in the production, they must dedicate time to that CALL BACK SLOT. If a child has a concern, have them stop into W210 to chat or feel free to write.

Respectfully, Mrs. Riccardo

Questions? Stop in to W210 or send me an email at Mrs. Riccardo


Participation in DRAMA BOOSTERS is a very important part of what makes our HP Spring Musical so successful!

Q: Who participates in Drama Boosters?

A: Parents/Guardians of our cast members!

This year, DRAMA BOOSTERS needs someone to serve as President (possibly a 7th or 8th grade parent who has some experience with Drama Boosters). If this is something you would consider, please let me know.

Mukilteo Library Teen Advisory Board

Before the pandemic, the Mukilteo Library had a thriving Teen Advisory Board (TAB) that helped Melleny Thomasson, Teen Services Librarian, plan teen programs, create library displays, complete service projects, and so much more.

TAB is starting up again at the Mukilteo Library and we are looking for a diverse group of awesome teens!

Many of the decisions about how TAB is run will be decided by those who join, but here’s what we know so far:

  1. TAB will meet on the first Thursday of each month at 4:00-5:30pm, starting on March 2nd. Snacks are always provided!
  2. All meetings take place in the Mukilteo Library meeting room, which is located off the lobby (on your right as you enter the library).
  3. TAB is open to anyone in grades 6 through 12 who can regularly attend the meetings.
  4. There is an application to fill out, and it has more details about what TAB does.

Reply to this e-mail or e-mail Melleny Thomasson, Teen Services Librarian, MUK Library to receive the application. MThomasson@sno-isle.org
