Happy Friday

Hello HHES Families,

We have learned a lot from visiting with students this week in classrooms, on the playground, walking to class, and in the cafeteria. It's always fun to hear student perspectives on the activities that happen throughout the day.

We encourage you to check out our Facebook page to see some of the on-goings of our campus. We try to share something every day with families.

On November 10th we will have having our Veterans Day Assemblies. If you would like to submit a photo for our assembly, please access the information on how to do this below on the Veterans Day flier.

Please remember there is no school on Friday, October 14th for a teacher in-service day.

Enjoy your weekend!

Mr. Robertson & Mrs. Colpron
