The Spaghetti Supper is right around the corner….Friday March 29th! We hope you consider joining us. The Spaghetti is, without a doubt, a great event for the whole family. There is something for everyone, adults included! The entertainment this year is The Ooch Experience, which is a combination of comedy, music, yoyo tricks and whole lot more…..the kids are going to love it! To see more about the Ooch Experience check it out here
We also have a ton of raffle prizes and silent auction items. We have baskets and prizes that everyone in the family will love! Most importantly, we will have a great dinner!
The Spaghetti Supper is a great family night out. You can spend time with family AND help the school. This is one of our biggest fundraisers and all the money goes right back to the kids. The Spaghetti Supper is a yearly tradition here at HBB and it is always great to see the whole school community come together. We hope to see you there!

It’s time to have your voice be heard! Please take a moment to complete our annual School Improvement Survey. We want to hear from you! We will also be hosting another contest this year. The grade that has the highest percentage of parents respond will receive extra recess and all students in that grade will be entered in a contest to play an important role in this year’s LipDub! You can access our survey on our website by clicking the link below. We will also be emailing the survey out in it's entirety soon.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to provide us with feedback!
It's MCAS Time!
It’s that time of year again! All students in grades 3-5 will be taking MCAS over the next few weeks. Please see our testing schedule below. Please make sure your kids are present on testing days and be sure they get a good night sleep and eat a healthy breakfast on testing days.
For those kids who might be anxious about the test, please ensure that them that they are well prepared and they will be ok! Our kids have been working very hard all year and we are confident that they are ready to go and they will do great. Most students will encounter questions they don’t know the answers too, it’s ok, just encourage them to do their best and don’t stress out!
Kids are not graded based on their results. We use the results to analyze what is working and what is not in our instruction. We have made solid steady gains each year as a school on MCAS and we are more confident this year than ever. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know!
