End the R Word
In an effort to educate our students about this issue, every year in 5th grade we have participated in the "End the R Word Challenge". The Morrison Family has been great in visiting our 5th graders and speaking to our students. At the conclusion of the presentation all our students signed the pledge to End the R Word. If you have a child in grade 5 please take a moment to talk with your child about it and please join us in ending the use of the R Word!
Getting Excited for the Spaghetti Supper
We would like to take a moment to thank everyone who has sent in items for this year’s Spaghetti Supper Baskets! Your donations are VERY much appreciated and they go a long way towards making the Spaghetti Supper a success.
The Spaghetti Supper is our biggest fundraiser of the year and all the proceeds raised go right back to the kids. The money raised pays for all sorts of very important enrichment activities for our kids. This year alone we have taken trips to the Museum of Science, Plimouth Plantation, the Zeiterion Theatre with many more trips planned. We have had authors visit our classes, great prizes at the Husky Haven, brag tags for the Character Word of the Week and Pawsitive Office Referrals and SOOO much more. Without the funds raised through events like this and donations like yours we wouldn’t be able to do so many of the great things we do here at HBB, including providing all the kids with shirts for the LipDub!
The Spaghetti Supper is truly one of our favorite traditions and we hope you consider joining us this year, March 29th. Thank you again for all your generous donations and thank you to our PTA members who are giving so much of their time to make this year’s event the best it can be….we can’t wait!
