PARENT NOTE – May 4, 2020

“Blazin’ God’s Light”

Matthew 5: 15,16

FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK

We are looking forward to seeing you at our Pick-Up/Drop-Off today, May 4, between 3pm and 6pm. Please remember to bring completed paper assignments and finished library books. Unless your child’s teacher has designated otherwise, textbooks will be returned on June 1.

After today, there are 10 instructional days remaining until summer break. You can do it!

Lastly, an email is coming your way with some ideas for Teacher Appreciation Week. The HCS staff is working tirelessly, perhaps more than ever, to support your children this year. To recognize their dedication, I will be sending out some ideas for how you could recognize your child’s teacher during this season of COVID-19.

Keep shining for the Lord!
