Hughes Families Weekly Newsletter
While it was a short week, it was very HOT and our entire school community is very thankful for our Measure E funding that has provided our school with air conditioning! We held our first sports tryouts of the school year and it has been great to see so many students eager to try out for our teams. Thank you to every student for coming to school in uniform and wearing your ID. We are getting closer and closer to 100% success and we thank our families as well for supporting our school's uniform and ID dress code. Our students look GREAT in their school uniform and you can feel the school spirit when we are all in our school colors!

Hughes's Guidelines for Success
Hughes - A Green Ribbon School
Reusable Water Bottles: We encourage all students to bring a reusable water bottle to stay hydrated and reduce our plastic waste.
Clean and Green: As a Green School, our students should not litter on or around campus. Please make sure that all items are thrown away and that we also pick up trash that we see when walking or sitting by it. When we ignore trash on the ground, we are saying that we are OK with trash on the ground, and that's not the Hughes way!
Walk, Bike, Carpool: To minimize the amount of CO2 we add to our environment as well as noise pollution from traffic, we encourage all our students to walk, bike, or carpool to school.
Join the Hughes PTA! Our goal is for our entire school community to be members!
