PAIRIN UPDATE

We have officially started our PAIRIN curriculum at HHS. You might remember that the goal of this curriculum is to explicitly and purposefully teach essential skills that colleges and employers agree are needed for success after high school.

The first lessons are on Motivation and Determination. We have 15 min. 3-4 times a week set aside for this purpose.

I've included the link here for anyone interested in finding out more about the curriculum and what it offers.

We will continue to keep you updated as we move through these essential lessons. Please feel free to call if you or your children have questions. We believe this is time well spent.
