A NOTE FROM YOUR HCS HEAD OF SCHOOL
Dear HCS Parents,

What an amazing week we've had with your kids, from our precious preschoolers to our high school kids during WOW Week.

The support, encouragement, and affirmation for our school, our vision, and our commitment to your kids have been enormous! Words can’t express how thankful for each one of you I am and how you’ve entrusted us to meet and impact in your kids' lives, academically and spiritually.

Thank you also for your personal words of appreciation and support the past couple of days. We are so grateful for your overwhelming commitment to our school, leadership and our vision for God‘s plan for our kids at HCS.

Thank you, thank you to the parents and kids that continue to volunteer to make our school the very best for our kids.

We still have some very important needs where we need your help.

Funds needed:

$50,000 to create playing field for PE, playtime, and sports this month, rather than seeding and having to wait 2+ months to grow in sturdy grass.

$15,000 to upgrade our library for all grade levels and create an environment that stimulates learning and inspires studying.

Donations of $5,000+ towards the sports field are acknowledged on the field!

Donations of $1,000+ for facilities are being acknowledged on a designated campus wall.

Partners together,
Karen Winter
HCS Head of School
REJOICE and PRAISE the Lord with us, for we know that NOTHING is IMPOSSIBLE with GOD!!!

We are so EXCITED to announce that HCS Elementary Program has

OUR
WAIVER!!!
