Dear Sixth Grade families,

This past week was very special; We had a wonderful time taking your children to Miracle Ranch. We loved to see kids branch out to make new friends, and work together to problem solve. This was a wonderful bonding experience for our class, and has set the stage for 7th grade. The Wax Museum was also a huge success. Students worked so hard on this, and it truly showed in their speeches and costumes. We hope you have a nice, relaxing Memorial Day weekend. Students have earned it!

Homeroom Updates: 

Kindness Challenge: We will continue to encourage our students to always be more kind than is necessary; to show kindness to ALL students by saying and doing nice things. We want every student at HRS to feel welcome and loved. With that, we want to encourage students to report things they hear or see when no adult is present. They will remain anonymous, and we will do our best to respond to the situation as soon as possible.
