Greatest Hope for HPS

I hope that our community continues to embrace and encourage the efforts of achieving educational excellence. Our families are functioning in a technological evolution. Education is a key to successful transition.

Greatest Challenge for HPS 

It appears that sorting through the tangle of state and local funding will continue to challenge us to be vigilant and assertive. In addition, we need to acknowledge the assets of our diverse community and find ways to share them.
