Healthy Relationships Discussed at PTSA Board Meeting, Feb. 16 at 7pm

Want to know more about teen dating and how to discuss healthy relationships with your child? February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, and we're giving over the next PTSA General Board Meeting on Thursday, Feb. 16 for a discussion led by educators from New Beginnings, an organization that promotes awareness and action to end domestic violence. From teen dating, to helpful hints about how to discuss healthy and unhealthy relationships of all types, the curriculum is relevant for everyone -- whether your kids are dating now, in the future, or may never date at all. 
When: February 16 at 7pm
Where: In Person (location to be noted at entryway) and on Zoom:

Contribute to Valentine's Day Potluck For Staff!

HIMS Families! Thank you so much for signing up to contribute so many delicious items for our Valentine Potluck for HIMS Staff. After having to put events like this on hold for so long, we are so glad to be able to come together to celebrate our staff again. Thank you for your help!

If you are able, we are still in need of sides and salads, particularly vegetarian and vegan options. A green salad? Your child's favorite dip and carrot sticks? A bag of apples?? Anything you can bring in on Tuesday would be a huge help. Thank you all so much for working with us to make this happen!

If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at T
