The difference between success and failure is a great team!
I couldn't be more proud of our amazing teachers and staff. They have worked so hard to get the school, classrooms, and curriculum ready for your students. It has been extremely rewarding to get to know each of them better. They are a dedicated, enthusiastic, and FUN bunch!
Movie Night Cancelled:
The Family Movie Night scheduled for tomorrow was cancelled and rescheduled for the spring. We hope this doesn't cause any inconvenience.
It's not too late to sign up for enrichment activities. If your student is interested in computer science, French, or even Legos, check out all the great options. Click here for more details.
A huge thank you goes out to our technology department for imaging our new Mac Books, Chrome Books, and iPad Minis. The students in grades 2-8 will each have their own device to use for various academic projects.
Another thank you to David Weeks for hanging all the new whiteboards in the school. Our students will now be able to use interactive projectors during lessons.
Lastly, thank you to the PTO for organizing the spirit wear sales and enrichment activities sign-up during orientation. It was a big job, and it was much appreciated!
Sprint for Success (Jog-A-Thon):
On September 25, HRPA is sponsoring a Sprint for Success at Twin Oaks Park! All monies raised are designated for field trip expenditures. We are hoping that each student can raise $50 in donations for HRPA. Click here for the sponsorship form. For every $10 raised, students will earn raffle tickets for prizes. All students will receive a Sprint for Success t-shirt as well. Click here for the t-shirt order form.
Kindergarten/Middle School Spots Available:
Do you know anyone that is desperate to attend HRPA?? We still have a few spots available in kindergarten and 7th/8th grade. If you refer someone AND they enroll, you can earn 5 volunteer hours. So, get out there and spread the word about what an awesome school this is!
We desperately need some volunteers to pull some pages from our Spanish workbooks. If you can assist us, please stop by ANY TIME next week!
On Thursday, August 28 from 9 - 3, we need a group of volunteers to help turn our old library into a small group, resource center. Any and all help is appreciated!
We are still in need of a PTO treasurer and Vice Treasurer. These positions can be shared. Please contact the PTO if you are interested in helping out.
Mark you calendars for September 27th! We will be holding an e-Waste drive at both campuses. This is a great time to get rid of that old electronic equipment that is taking up space AND raise money for the school. More details to come!
All volunteers need to have fingerprints on file with the district. If you are new to HRPA or didn’t get yours done last year, you will need to have this done in order to volunteer. We will have a representative from LiveScan on site at Back to School night on September 10 from 6:30 pm to 8 pm. There is a $42 charge and LiveScan accepts cash or checks. Please make sure you have a valid ID and the LiveScan form with you.
