• HP Community,



    As we wrap up this week at HP, today ended Read Across America Week with many special events! In addition to our themed days, students had guest & masked readers, played games, and participated in special crafts and projects across grade levels. Check out some photos and the staff read aloud on Instagram and Facebook! We are pleased to share the winners of the Library Cat in the Hat Library Contest:

    Most Original: Matthew Stout ( gr1)

    Most Creative: Jillian Carten (gr 3)

    Most Innovative: Dylan Song ( gr1)

    Today, after our read aloud we had our 3rd grade spring musical drawing for the “young” Shrek & Fiona. We are happy to share, Colin Karpati & Audrey Kim will make an appearance at the show!

    Last night, we held our fall 2019 Kindergarten Orientation for parents. Parents had an opportunity to meet with administration, guidance, the health office and teaching staff regarding kindergarten life, curriculum, summer Bright From the Start, readiness and general questions.
