Attention Seniors who have not ordered a cap and gown: Graduate Service will return on Friday during late lunch to take your cap and gown orders. This will be the last time they will be coming to Huron to take orders. Be sure to turn in your order while they here so that you will save money on shipping and handling costs.
Challenge Day at Huron will happen on Monday 3/19. It is a full school day community building workshop that brings together 100 students from all grade levels (majority will be 9th and 10th grade students this year), 25 upper class student leaders, and 30+ adults who are parents, teachers, counselors, support staff, administrators, professionals from community organizations that work in conjunction with our schools, and other interested community members. During the workshop, all participants (both students and adults) are lead through a carefully designed series of games, activities and trust building exercises which allow them to explore the ways people separate from each other. The goal of these powerful and moving exercises is to create a safe and respectful environment in which to learn about and share concerns that are often difficult to talk about. Participants at Huron's past Challenge Days have found that this workshop is a wonderful way to break down barriers that create separation and replace them with connection. Please contact Linda Hibbs at email@example.com, (734) 214-5723 for more information.
Please feel free to pass along my contact information for our incoming 9th grade families. We had a tremendous turn out for their program on Feb. 15.
Enjoy the holiday with your great River Rat!
