Welcome from James Steward

After a week of illness infiltrating our community, life returned to normal this past week. 

Frigid temperatures and snow graced the campus. Students enjoyed playing in the fresh snow. 

We had a lively PE Assembly with students and teachers displaying their talents. It is said that a famous unicyclist even showed up. It is also possible that Mr Chris performed a headstand. You will only know if you access the HIS Photo Gallery link below.

Finally, we capped the week off with an exciting basketball game featuring our HIS Wolves and MC Perry. Cheerleaders appeared in record numbers sporting some crazy hair! Thank you to our wonderful PTA parents for providing food and drinks after the match! It was a battle of the titans with our Wolves led by captain Ryoma taking the game right down to the wire! The competition level was superb.
