Fall Festival as a Demonstration of the HUSKIES
Perhaps most of all, Fall Festival provides our students the platform upon which they can grow and learn as individuals and put into practice the very values that we stand for. Students have been planning for for weeks to set up stalls of various kinds to provide the food and games that formed the basis of the day. Those in turn generate funds that will contribute to the service learning experiences that will make a difference in our world in the future.
From the Principal’s Office
Fall Festival Thanks! - Thank-you to everyone who volunteered and helped make the fall festival such a tremendous success this year! We had a wonderful turnout - despite the weather - and a lot of money was generated with which the PTA will continue to support the school and its students. It was encouraging to see the parents, teacher and students of the HIS community work together for a common goal. Great work!
