Yankee Candle & Ice Cream update

Dear HGF Families,
From February 18th to March 3rd, the school will be selling Yankee Candles.  This is not a PTA fundraiser.  Forty percent of all profits will go to the school, which will be used to purchase math materials for students at HGF. Shopping can occur by catalog and online.  Please be on the look out for information that will be going home shortly.  This is an important fundraiser for the school and we appreciate all of your support!
Mrs. Matthews & Mrs. Vitagliano

Update on Ice Cream Money!
Thank you to all who have been purchasing ice cream each week.  Combined with money received from student pictures, we have earned enough money to purchase $1,200 worth of reading materials!  The books will be arriving shortly!  Thank you so much!
Mrs. Matthews & Mrs. Vitagliano

Pennies for Patients

posted Feb 1, 2015, 12:32 PM by David Coulon   [ updated Feb 1, 2015, 12:32 PM ]

During the week of Feb. 9th - Feb. 13, we will be collecting spare change to benefit the Pennies for Patients Program for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Students are asked to bring in spare change to deposit in a box in their classrooms.  A pizza lunch will be provided to the class that raises the most money.  But most importantly, students will be giving to a program that does research for cures for cancer and ensures access for treatments for blood cancer patients.
Thank you!

 MANCHESTER  As the city prepares for the biggest snow storm of the winter so far, with blizzard conditions expected, superintendent Dr. Livingston has announced that Manchester public schools will be closed on Tuesday, January 27 and Wednesday, January 28. This decision was made after careful and extensive consultation with meteorologists and officials around Manchester, with safety and the extensive clean-up efforts that will be required after the storm in mind.
 Please be safe.
