6th Grade Parents-Great opportunity for our 6th grade students. Prior to the Covid Pandemic it was a yearly tradition to have the 6th Graders from Harbor schools attend the Nutcracker Ballet put on by the Pacific Northwest Ballet Company. This year, due to the lack of bus drivers, and the fact that no one in our office has been a part of this, it looked like we were going to miss out on this. But thanks to Jessica Hoover from the Grays Harbor Community Foundation, and Ms. Glasgow, who has been working the phones like a Rock Star...and a lot of help from the North Beach School District transportation folks...it looks like our 6th graders will get an opportunity to bring this tradition back this year. We are sending home permission/information slips today (Wednesday) for your student to attend. We really need those slips back by Wednesday, November 30 because we need a count for tickets and transportation. Wednesday is a HARD deadline. If you are interested in chaperoning, there is an option on the permission slip. There are limited numbers of spots for chaperones, so first come first served. Chaperones must be able to pass a background check. For more information, please call the HMS office...360-538-8220. Thank you and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Monday 11/21: The after school program site supervisor is ill, and thus we need to cancel After School Program at HMS today. Students should take their normal means of getting home. Sorry for the late notice, we just received word.
Here is our Week at a Glance for this week: Reminder we have a 90 minute early release on Wednesday, which means school is dismissed at 1:20. No School Thursday and Friday for Thanksgiving Break. We hope you all are able to find and celebrate the things you are thankful for!
Due to illness, there are no E-Sports today (Tuesday, November 15). Stay tuned daily...
