A Message from the Principal

Hobby Family,

I am so proud of the work our teachers are doing, but I know they’re tired. For nearly two years, they have worked tirelessly through challenge after challenge with your child’s best interest in mind.

Many of you have shared with me how impressed you are with our teachers – how they go the extra mile to take care of every student in and out of the classroom.

Please, take time to reach out to your child’s teacher and say thank you when you can. They would love to hear from you. We all know a few words of encouragement can go a long way. Contact Teachers here
