A Message From Our Principal
Dear HFCS Community,
I want to thank you for a great first quarter! Our second quarter is going well, too: in the last two weeks alone we have had an amazing parent and student turnout for the Home and School Association/Art Enrichment Night, as well as, a great Pep Rally, Honors Assembly, and National Junior Honor Society Induction!
Pictured above from left to right: Kylie Sterett, Jordan Hill, Sophia Hughes, Drew Hill, Tyler Phillips, Annie Fatima, Aiden Souder, and Olivia Vasquez.
Last Wednesday morning many parents joined me for a very lively and productive Coffee and Conversation. We had an informal focus group: the parents broke into three groups, wrote their 5 GREAT Things about HFCS/5 Areas that Need Improvement, and then shared their thoughts. What a great sharing and listening session we had - thank you!
I invite parents, teachers and staff to participate in this same process in survey form, please submit your survey by November 15. I will share the results with you at a HFCS evening event in January, date TBD.
Your responses to this survey, and our future sharing and listening session, will help us celebrate our strengths and shape the next phase of HFCS strategic planning and marketing. Here is the link to the anonymous survey: https://forms.gle/18wEs5FWAERrQuVc8 I look forward to hearing your voice through this survey!
Holy Family, Pray for us!
Mrs. Ann M. Walters, MPS
