Moving Into Winter Break
As the semester ends and we move towards winter break, we are reminded of the importance of taking a breath and recharging. Here at HSMC, we are fortunate to be on the College semester timeline so we don't have to worry about coming back from break and taking finals....all our finals will be over this week!
We are in the middle of our Winter Spirit Week that will culminate in our Everything but the backpack and hot chocolate social on Friday.
Have a wonderful week Phoenix families....the days begin to get longer on the 21st!
To all Students:
Finish this semester strong! Give all final projects and exams your best effort! Enjoy your well deserved break from school!
