Message from Principal Hickox
What a surprise to wake up to a snow day yesterday! We were expecting some snow, but the day off of school was definitely unexpected. I hope you all enjoyed the day at home and were able to get out and enjoy our early winter.
It's hard to believe that October is just around the corner. Before we know it, first quarter will be over and we will be welcoming families into the building for parent teacher conferences. We look forward to this time to connect with families.
Speaking of connections, it has been so inspiring yesterday to watch a small army of committed Huffman volunteers show up for our annual potato harvest. Friday was the day that was planned to harvest with students, and normally if the weather doesn't allow us to participate, we will reschedule for the following week. Unfortunately, with the cold temperatures predicted for next week, the master gardeners in charge felt that we needed to harvest now to avoid damaging the crop.
We will share pictures with our students when they return on Monday, and we will look forward to continuing this tradition with planting in the spring!
