Dear HGS Families & Friends,

Hello from afar! Though we certainly could never have imagined that we’d have made such a dramatic change to how we educate when this year began, we could always have told you with 100% certainty that the strength and perseverance of our HGS school community would be what keeps all of us going. We are SO incredibly proud of and grateful for every person who makes us HGS Strong! We know that each of you is doing your very best during this time!

The most important thing we can do right now is focus on staying connected! None of us are alone in this, and we will get through this together! Please make sure to reach out to your child’s teacher or to the school if there is anything that you need. Try to participate in the ZOOM sessions offered by teachers, specialists, Mrs. Perkins, and others. Not only are these valuable tools for instruction, they also allow us to see each other and connect on a more personal level.

Another great way to keep connected is to “like” and visit our Hills Garrison Elementary School Facebook page. Here is the link:

Each Tuesday afternoon, we post a Principals’ Challenge for the week - these fun activities are designed to be engaging for students and families. They are meant to encourage outside time, breaks from electronics, and to promote movement, mindfulness, and positivity. Each week a random winner will be drawn from all participants to receive a gift card to a local restaurant, courtesy of the HGS PTO.

Though we are apart, we are together in spirit! Know that we recognize the challenges that this time presents us with. We are here for you and for your children. Please reach out and keep in touch. We miss you all dearly! Together, we are stronger!
Until next time,
Lois Connors, Principal    Sarah Muncey, Assistant Principal
