Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing male role models out there for our kids. We have another busy week coming up so please take time to read through the information carefully.

Information To Share:

Student Success Day – June 28th: The last Wednesday of the year is our Student Success Day where students have the opportunity to attend and demonstrate learning outcomes with their teachers. This is by invitation only and other students need not attend. Please contact your child’s teacher if you have any question regarding this.

Feeder School Visit: On June 28th, we also invite all of our incoming Skyhawks to the middle school for a great morning of connecting with each other while getting a taste of HDSMS. Our WEB leaders and staff engage them in a variety of activities followed by a pizza lunch. Great way to send them off for the summer.

Year End / Awards Assembly: We will have our year end / awards assembly on June 27th starting at 1:30. We will hand out our 5 major awards as well as athletic awards.
