HBB Big Blast

The coolest event of the year is right around the corner and we hope you will be able to join us! The HBB Big Blast is scheduled for Friday October 25th and it's great way to spend time with your family. They're all sorts of prizes and games for kids and families and we encourage everyone to wear a costume! Most importantly, your attendance at the Big Blast directly supports kids programming here at HBB as all the money goes right back to the kids in the form of field trips, enrichment, the Husky Haven and SOOOO much more!


See the flyer below under the PTA updates for more info!

School Safety

In the coming weeks classroom teachers will begin training students about our procedures for what to do in the event of an emergency here at HBB. We will be discussing topics such as what to do in the event of an intruder and other similar scenarios and we want you to know that we handle these conversations in a sensitive, age appropriate manner. Unfortunately this is a reality we face and our goal is to ensure that our students are prepared, not scared. Over the years we have gotten pretty good at this but, like anything else, there may be questions. If your child is asking questions please talk to them. Please let them know that this is similar to practicing a fire drill, it doesn’t mean something is going to happen, we just want to be prepared. Lastly, should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Looking for STEM Week Volunteers!

Last year we hosted our first ever STEM Week the week before the holiday break and it was a huge success. One our kids’ favorite part of STEM Week was all the parent and community volunteers that came in to visit classes.


If you have something to share or if you work in the field of Science, Technology, Engineering or Math we would love to have you come visit a class!


If you are interested or if you have any questions about how you can help out with STEM Week please reach out to me at dthompson@middleboro.k12.ma.us or call the school.


STEM Week will be December 16-20.

Partnership with the Harrington Elementary School in Lexington

This past week a group of teachers from HBB went with me to the Harrington Elementary School for our first visit in our new partnership with the Harrington Elementary School in Lexington. We are partnering with the Harrington School to learn from one another and exchange ideas in an effort to improve our schools. Our specific focus this year is on Social Emotional Supports and Learning and I am happy to report that our first visit went great! It was an excellent opportunity to visit another successful school to see what they are doing that's working. We are looking forward to their first visit to HBB in December!
