Sounds of the Season:
If you have been at school during the day, you may have heard them! Sounds of the Season coming from classrooms throughout the school! Your students have been practicing for the 2nd Annual holiday concert that is quickly approaching! They will be performing a wide variety of songs from different holidays and we will also have the pleasure of hearing the HRPA Children’s Choir! Please mark your calendars! The Sounds of the Season Concert will be held December 10, 2015 at 6:45p.m., at Bayside Blue Oaks, 10000 Alantown Drive, Roseville. The students will do a dress rehearsal prior to the performance according the following schedule:
Dress for the concert should be festive! We hope to shine like stars on the stage, so be sure to wear something that is comfortable, yet appropriate for a concert.
We encourage everyone to attend and bring your friends and family! Invitation cards will be send home with your students the week after we return from Thanksgiving break. There will be plenty of seating and there are no tickets necessary. Donations will be accepted to support the music/arts programs at HRPA. If you have any questions, or would like to volunteer to help with pre-concert, or during the concert, please contact Mandy Safley, firstname.lastname@example.org, or 515-231-0134. Look forward to sharing this special night together!!

We are pleased to announce that the Governance Council voted to double our intervention time. An interview team was busy screening candidates, and we are happy to say that we have hired (pending Governance Council's approval) Karyn Beaudin as our new intervention teacher. She will be working directly with students that need additional support in either reading or math. This will be a consistent and systematic intervention service that will allow us to better meet the needs of all our students.
