Teacher Appreciation Week is May 7-11!
Be on the lookout for information coming home from your Room Parent soon!


It has been mentioned in a neighborhood group that Mountain Gap parents are making u-turns on Wynsom and Heard, speeding, pulling into driveways, and backing into mailboxes. There are "No u-turn" signs posted on Chaney Thompson and Mountain Gap. Please respect our neighbors and take a little extra time to ensure the safety of everyone. 

A suggested route is to take Parcus to Branscomb back to Mountain Gap. 

If you have any concerns about the traffic patterns, please call HPD at 256-722-7100.
Crossing Guard Appreciation

Every year we like to recognize the two wonderful crossing guards we have by collecting contributions for gift baskets. 
Holly (elementary) and Kim (middle school) do an awesome job at helping traffic flow smoothly and our children get to school safely! 
If you would like to contribute to the gift baskets, please leave donations at The Welcome Center; Attention: Joleen Mitchell
8th grade teachers are looking for parents that would be willing to help with the end of the year celebration. Please contact Ms. Graham if interested.
