Principal's Message

Dear Parents:

We have had a wonderful first quarter. Our Parent Teacher Organization has been working fast and furious with Operation Otter 100% in order to try to raise funds for the students of this school.  Our School Improvement Committee has had their first meeting and discussed possible goals for the year including educating our community about the upcoming referendum (please see included information). Students start the day off right with either the Morning Meeting or the Otter Morning News as a way for fostering communication and building community. Our grant funded Farm to Table initiative helped us to not only grow over 100 sweet potatoes, but eat them as well!!!

Clubs has officially started, and we have a great menu of classes including basketball, nature club, volleyball, and chorus. For the first time ever, the HH Symphony has partnered with HHIE and HHISCA and are able to offer onsite violin lessons for selected students for free! Because HHIE received Title I funds this year, we have been fortunate enough to be able to hire additional math and reading tutors and lots of resources for our students. Our parent liaisons have been busy working with our community partners by offering onsite training and professional development for our parents, including workshops through NAMI. All students are reading nightly with our school wide Otter’s Read Program. Students have been making Chinese Lanterns as part of their unit on the Moon Festival. We hope to see many of these lanterns during HHI’s first ever Chinese Lantern Parade which will be held November 9th. More information can be found at:

Congratulations on a great first quarter!

Dr. Sarah L. Owen
