1. Principal’s Message
Dear HIS Families
I hope you enjoyed the week, even after a snowy start. It sounds just right for the PTAs Ski Trip on February 18, which will be lots of fun. Please see the information in the PTA section below. In this week’s Crane video, there are some comments from our students about the HIS community. I would like to thank the students involved for helping out and we are planning to make a series of these related to life at HIS. This was a great start and over time we should get better at making them. See you next week.
