Thank you for a great year!
I would like to take this time to let you know how much I appreciate your support of the students and staff of Hurst Hills Elementary. I have enjoyed the opportunity for another year to serve you and your children as principal of Hurst Hills. I am the luckiest principal, because Falcons truly pull together as a team to grow our children in amazing ways every day! Have a wonderful summer; and I look forward to seeing everyone at returning student registration on July 27 or August 2nd.
It is always a pleasure,
Beth Sanders, Principal
