Kona Ice Food Drive

The food drive for Kona Ice is on again. Kona Ice will visit HGF on the 3rd of June.  This year they have promised to have two trucks serving, so it should go more smoothly for us.  

More Information will be sent home with the kiddos for an upgrade on the product they buy that day. Last year HGF received a total of $1,118.08 for bringing in the most food of all elementary schools in Manchester so we received 75% of our sales. I know we can do this again. The food donations go to the NH Food Bank. Let's do it again! 
Collection of food will begin on May 13, 2015.

Meeting Reminder

Reminder that there will be a PTA meeting this Wednesday the 20th at 6:30pm. We will be discussing various end of year topics, including field day.  All are welcome!

Volunteers Needed - Book Party 5/14

Our Reading Specialist, Mrs. Rivard, is excited to announce that HGF is the recipient of a $5000 grant! This grant enabled HGF to purchase more than 1000 new books for the lending library that our teachers use.

The books need to be stamped and labeled; we are looking for some volunteers to help with this task after school. She will be hosting a "Book Party" after school Tuesday the 14th from 3-4pm. Please come if you!! The sooner the books are labelled the sooner our teachers can use them with our children.
