PRINCIPAL’S CORNER

HSPT

11 of the 43 students that took the High School Placement Test scored in the 97% or above. More than 25% of our students scored in the highest 3% of students that took the test in the U.S. I can see that many of our students will be earning scholarship $ for their future high school. Great job 8th grade students and to all of their teachers!

Open House

The Open House for the school will take place Sunday, January 22 from 11:00-2:00. Kindergarten Information Night is Thursday, January 26 at 7:00. The Kindergarten Information Night begins with a presentation in room D5 then proceeds to touring the kindergarten classrooms. Please help us promote these events!

Next School Year

Next school year we are planning to have three 3rd grade classrooms. All kindergarten classes will have a full-day and half-day option.

Woodward Hills/Christmas Concert

Great job to Mr. Pacifico and his Band and Glee students! They sang and played for senior citizens at Woodward Hills. The crowd was delighted by the performance! I am very much looking forward to seeing the Christmas Concert today at 1:30. There is also a Parent performance tomorrow at 1:00 in the gym. I have been very impressed at our talented musicians and Mr. Pacifico!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to the entire St. Hugo of the Hills Community. I feel very blessed to have joined you this year and I am looking forward to many wonderful happenings at our school in 2017!
