Curriculum News.... Traceburg

The decision has been made not to do Traceburg this year. There have been many changes in the curriculum over the past few years and we now have the technology that enables us to more effectively teach the same concepts. Ms. Litaker will be glad to further explain this decision if you have any questions or concerns.

Garden Update!

"Engineering students from UAB will construct a rain water collection system for our garden on Saturday, Nov. 10. Please let me know if you would like to help, and someone from the garden committee will contact you. Thanks!"


E-day is one of school instruction built into the HCS 2012 calendar that counts as a regular day of school. Please review the brochure that came home last week. Let me know if you have any questions.
