WELCOME BACK!

August 2017 - HJH: Excellence in Education

A Word From Whittle

I've tried to wait until the last minute to send this out because I know it requires you to begin thinking about starting school and closing out your summer.


I am hopeful this finds you refreshed and ready to tackle a new year. This begins my 20th year in education and I am so thankful for an opportunity to make an impact on the lives of another group of students, staff, and parents. Despite the current mood in education, there is nothing else I'd rather be doing. (Well, that's not entirely true. I'd love to be on SNL or independently wealthy, but I digress.)


Below you will find the following:


  • Our new HJH "theme"
  • A couple of videos to watch...they'll go with what we're learning so don't skip this part
  • Our schedule for the two weeks before school



I can't wait to see you on Monday!


Amy
