Coming Up

Principal's Spotlight

Greetings Huff Learning Community Parents and Guardians,
To follow up with the previous School Site Council agenda item of homework, I would like to invite you to a Principal's homework chat forum on Monday, April 21, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the MUR.  This community conversation is most appropriate in light of Common Core shifts and meeting the needs of all students while supporting growth in the area of academics and 21st Century Skills.  I look forward to the informal conversation.  Come ready to share your thoughts, experiences, and suggestions that will be taken into consideration when Team Huff instructors and I pool our input and ideas later this month to formulate new possibilities for next year.


Huff Walk-A-Thon Fundraiser Coming Up Next Week

Huff PTA is hosting the walk-a-thon next Thursday, April 24, from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. All students (K-5) are invited to participate and walk laps around the 1/5-mile "Lynne Lowe Loop" behind Huff school. This fun fitness activity also serves as a fundraiser for the PTA to provide scholarships for the YMCA Kids' Place at Huff. Food will be available for purchase, drinks provided for free, and all student participants will receive a token of participation.
For more details, download the Rules and Pledge Sheet. Participants' parents should also complete a permission slip for students to bring to the walk-a-thon.

Sign Up for Fun with Huff Friends!

There is still room to attend some upcoming auction events for kids AND parents in the month of April, including a kids' soccer clinic, a ladies' beach hike, and more hikes for kids and families. Check out the schedule of events and contact Laurie Balch to sign up ASAP!
