Congrats to the 7 Red Honor Roll and High Honor Roll students for 2nd Quarter!
Valentine's Day is quickly approaching and the HMS Student Council has a wonderful opportunity for you to do something for that special someone -- purchase a candy gram. Candy grams will be sold Tuesday, January 31st - Tuesday, February 7th. Students may purchase candy grams for $1.00 during their lunch hours. Your valentine will receive a full-size candy bar and special handwritten message from you on Tuesday, February 14th. Happy Valentine's Day!!
We have lots of parents ask about whether or not they can purchase candy grams for their own children, their children's friends, teachers, etc. . . . the answer is yes you can. If you would like to purchase a candy gram, please fill-out this form -- https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSf2-Y5QGvqz5MXESnl2tlLr8cdml5H8UkRiIqWANrRj2GGPQw/viewform
. Please have your student turn the money in for candy grams in an envelope to the office. They will need to give it to either Kateri Odle or Berta Perez by Tuesday, February 7th. Very important -- please make sure you put on the outside or inside of the envelope who the candy gram is for and who is giving it or we will not be able to credit the appropriate person. Each candy gram is $1 for a full-size candy bar. Also, due to supply issues, candy may have to be substituted. We will try our best to get the candy you have chosen.
If you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
