Support HV while Holiday Shopping
Beginning Monday, 8th January 2018:

Flag Deck will move to MONDAYS!

The teachers have voted and there are many reasons for the change. One reason is that students have Science, Art, Tech., Music, and P.E. 'Pull-Outs' Tuesday-Fridays. The earliest Friday pull-outs have been consistently too short due to Flag Deck. There aren't pull-outs on Mondays, so.....Flag Deck will move to Mondays! Join HV on the Lower Playground, Mondays at 8:20AM for Flag Deck. ( PFO General Meetings will follow the change and move to Mondays, too. Please see the below list for new meeting dates.)
