Food Collection for the Spring Teacher Conferences

We still have a couple slots open on the signup! Please consider bringing something in to feed teachers on conference day.

Teacher conferences are being held on 3/1 and we’d like to show our appreciation by providing light snacks to keep them going during the late hours! PTO will cater a lunch for the staff, but we’re asking for donations of food items to keep in the teacher’s lounge throughout the day. Please do your part to brighten a teacher’s day. Sign up with the following link:

HPS Bowling Day
Thank you to all the families who attended the annual HPS Bowling day at Stone Lanes. We even had Principal Sunderman and a few teacher celebrities join in the fun! Smiles on faces were seen throughout the day as kids bowled and ate pizza. If you missed it, we'll be hosting another one next year!
