Principal’s Message to Families

Happy Tuesday,  

We have finished our first week of school and it was great!  Kids were engaged in class, asking questions, and getting to know each other.  We are so proud of how well they have begun in-person learning.  The teachers have come up with brilliant activities and our community is tighter than ever.  This coming Thursday we have our Back to School Night (BTSN) from 6-7 pm.  Teachers will have a prerecorded video that they will send out to their families.  All links will be posted on the HPMS website.  Teachers will also be creating a Q and A document that they will respond to during BTSN. Administration will also have office hours to answer questions and get to know the community.  Use the - LINK - to our Zoom.  And finally, I want to share my appreciation to our families who have entrusted us with their students.  This year is going to be wonderful in part because of your care, advocacy, and support.
