First trimester has been extremely successful at Hygiene.  Report cards will be available on December 1, 2017 on Infinite Campus. encourage you to contact school staff with any questions/concerns about your child’s progress or attendance.

Calling all parent volunteers!  We are getting ready to begin planning and creating our Hawk Air Future for March 21st and 22nd.  Parents, are you interested in building and creating an environment that is futuristic, innovative and sustainable?  We need your help as this is our capstone school wide project that is truly an out of this world experience for our students.  If you are interested in helping support your class, please reach out to your child’s teacher as soon as possible so we can get everyone on the list.  Your involvement can be as little or as much as you like including creating things at home.  We appreciate the support and can only make this happen with the help of all of you!
