We are all settling into the routine of school! Classroom visits have started and teaching is in full swing! Here's a challenge to our HMM Parents: visit our Facebook page and post your favorite HMM moment so far this year! Was it the first day of school? or maybe them falling asleep on the way home after a long day? Right after you pick them up from an activity? or just watching them work hard on works either at school or at home? READY...SET...POST!
HMM Spirit Night THIS WEDNESDAY at Hawthorne's
Make it a family night out this Wednesday and join us between 4-8pm at Hawthorne's Pizza for our first HMM Spirit Night of the school year. Visit the 7Th Street or Highland Creek locations, mention the HMM Spirit Night when ordering and Hawthorne's will donate 15% of all receipt sales back to our school. Delicious pizza, time with friends and money earned for our school--it's a win-win-win!!.
Hey Grandparents, thanks for your support!
A big THANK YOU to all the grandparents who attended the Grandparents' Breakfast on October 8Th. We had a huge turnout and lots of fun eating, crafting and enjoying the photo booth. For those grandparents who stopped by the photo booth but didn't have their cameras on hand, follow this link to view and order your snapshot(s) from the breakfast.
