Summer Message from Principal Wallace

June 2021

Dear Challenger Families,

WE MADE IT!!! What an exciting school year we’ve had! We (students and teachers) learned more than we thought we ever would in such an unusual and varied year. I also think we were kinder and more considerate of each other as well. Thank you for sharing your children with us. We were grateful to see, hear, talk, and laugh with them every day. We worked hard to make sure all students were successful, and end of year testing results gave us reason to celebrate.

It is now time to rest up for the next year. Please make sure your children read every day. We all worked hard to make gains in reading and we don’t want it to drop. Please visit Lexia Resources for fun summer reading ideas.

Our office is open this summer Monday – Thursday from 7:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. until June 28th. The office will close until July 6th. We will reopen 8:00 p.m. -4:00 p.m. Monday – Thursday. The office will be closed for lunch from 11:30 -12:30.

New student registration is available on the HCS Website. Look at the Quick Links and click on Enrollment. Returning students updated registration opens June 28th. Please visit the same link to update your child’s registration.

We look forward to seeing everyone back on August 4th and will update you on meet the teacher events later this summer. In the meantime, enjoy your summer!!


Michele Wallace, Ed.D.
