News from the Hill - 11/10/22


Dear Parents and Guardians:

We wish a Happy Veterans Day to our military both past and present. We thank them for their sacrifice, bravery, and service to our country. May God watch over and bless each one of them and their families. 

Today, we honored our grandparents and veterans with a drive by parade. All of our students lined up outside with banners, posters and flags wishing our grandparents and veterans a very special day. Students and faculty dressed down in Red, White, and Blue in honor of our military and our country. This has always been a fun and special day for our students and faculty.
