Thank you to the entire 8th grade team for putting on a great party for our 8th graders, who raised $679 for the Hurricane Harvey survivors! I want to especially thank our custodian, Ms. Oliva, our team leader Ms. Lee, Mr. Castilleja and Mr. Peck for putting on a great lights show, and DJ Phill Will (Coach Williams) for keeping the crowd moving!

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.
