I would like to give a loud SHOUT OUT to all our Office Staff for all their hard work. Everyone pulled together and held down the fort while we were in the process of looking for a new receptionist. To our new receptionist, Rebecca Mendoza, welcome to Hernandez.
Kudos to the awesome MATH Department for supporting each other and having the same goal...student success!! You are appreciated!

Thank you to the 8th grade GLT for all their help in throwing the 8th grade Glow Up Party.
Especially to Briana Flores and Caitlin La for helping me plan and budget what to buy for the party, as well as Heather Daniel, Lauren Moorhead, Tim Peck, LaDee Maxie, Yvette Bradford, Laura Stegall and Jessica Eisele for helping out with preparing the decorations and putting them up.
Also to Jeff McBride, Anna Carter and Tim Peck, for the activity ideas.
The 8th graders would not be able to have this amazing party if it weren't for the whole 8th grade team!!!
