HSAC Parent Newsletter-Parents Are Always Welcome to Visit Our School!
Principal’s Message: We have been having productive discussions at our PTA meetings and would love to see more of you attend.
To make it a little easier, we will be serving a light dinner at our next
PTA meeting on December 11th and all parents in attendance will
receive a two-way metro card.
I’d like to give a special shout out to Mr. Alulema whose generosity
helped our students buy their new popcorn maker. Finally, I wish all
of you a joyous holiday season and new year.
