There will be no school on Jan. 16th so that we may celebrate the life of Martin Luther King Jr.
Remington, HGF's Therapy Dog, began work to help students today! His job will be as a companion listening to students read, and as an incentive to help students meet their goals in behavior, social, or academic skills. We would like to thank Mrs. Dubois, Remington's handler, for bringing this exciting opportunity to our school!
A big thank you to Merchants Fleet Management for their generous donation of $250.00 to HGF!! We greatly appreciate their generosity, and will use these funds to purchase materials for students. We also would like to thank Mr. Coulon!

The third graders in Mrs. Eastman's class had a demonstration and lesson in Karate last week. They discussed valuable topics such as focusing in school, showing respect, always trying to do their very best and strategies for coping with bullying. They all, even the teachers, had the chance to chop wooden boards in half with their own bare hands! A great time was had by all. The class surely appreciated Mr. Standen from the Manchester Karate Studio taking the time to visit them at HGF.
