APEX Color Games is Here!!

During the Apex Color Games fundraiser, students will be challenged to get donations from family and friends to help our school. We’ll end the 2-week fundraiser with a celebratory event called Apex Color Games for students who participate in the fundraiser (think lots of color, games, fun raffle prizes, snacks, loud music, high energy, and FUN!) And WE NEED YOUR HELP!

These funds will go toward HBMS teacher grants and campus enrichment. Thank you for your support!

Morning & Afternoon Homework Help

Homework Help is offered before and after school. This is a quiet work session facilitated by a faculty member for students to get help with or complete homework assignments.

BEFORE SCHOOL - 7:20-8:20am (Monday-Friday)

- Room 748 with Mr. Beatty

- Library with Ms. Hooker

- Room 775 with Mr. Gaffney

AFTER SCHOOL - 4:20-5:20pm (Monday-Thursday)

- Mondays and Wednesdays - Room 752 with Mr. Zambito

- Tuesdays and Thursdays - Room 775 with Mr. Gaffney

- There will not be Homework Help on Friday afternoons

As a reminder, we do not have late buses running routes this year, so if your child stays after school for Homework Help, it is the expectation that you pick him/her up at 5:20pm.
