Dear Families & Friends,

Welcome to April, a month of longer days, warmer weather, budding trees, and so many more reasons that give us a feeling of renewed energy and enthusiasm. It’s hard not to feel hopeful when Spring is in the air! Here at HGS, April finds us with new pep in our step as we look to make the third trimester the best one yet. We are in the homestretch, and we are determined to finish strong!

March was a busy month at HGS - highlights include:
➢ Word of the Month - Patience: we learned that patience isn’t just the ability to wait, but our attitude and perseverance while we wait;
➢ Read Across America Week - we celebrated reading & great books! A HUGE shout-out to our PTO who provided gift cards for our reading & writing raffle;
➢ End of 2nd Trimester (3/22) & Beginning of 3rd Trimester
➢ BINGO - the PTO hosted this popular activity virtually this year

April brings many things to look forward to:
➢ 4/4 PTO 6:30 PM
➢ 4/9 Spring Pictures (optional)
➢ 4/22 Earth Day! 🌎
➢ Poetry Celebration Month
➢ Month of the Military Child - we will wear purple on Fridays to show our support for families of members of the Armed Services
➢ April Break - Monday, 4/26 - Friday, 4/30 (no school)

Our good citizenship focus this month is on FLEXIBILITY. When we are flexible with our thinking, we keep our minds open and welcome new ideas and possibilities. Flexibility helps us persevere toward our goals and equips us to handle change.

Thinking ahead to May, students in grades 3 - 5 will participate in the NH Statewide Assessment System (NH SAS) starting the second week of the month. More information to follow.

We are grateful for the learning and growth opportunities we share with your children each day. Thank you for sharing them with us! We hope that April brings you time to breathe the fresh air, explore nature, and spend time together as a family.

Until Next Time,

Sarah Muncey, Interim Principal           Karen Ferrante, Interim Assistant Principal
