Thank You Ms. Becker
Ms. Becker has said her farewell to being the SGA's advisor after 7 years of hard work and commitment. In the picture above, the SGA (student government association) family celebrated her last year of being the SGA advisor with some cake and flowers after all the great things she has done for SGA. In the past 7 years Ms. Becker has balanced teaching math analysis, statistic AP, having a son, and being the SGA sponsor. She is ready to give her position to the lovely Ms. Compofelice. Thank you Ms. Becker for everything you have done for SGA and the school!

HCPSS Student Meal Announcement
Parents may prepay for student meals by setting up an online account at www.schoolpaymentsolutions.com. Students also have the option of paying with cash on a daily basis. Each student has been issued a PIN to use when purchasing meals with cash or prepayment. If a student has forgotten their PIN, cashiers can look the PIN up by student name. This PIN allows HCPSS to receive reimbursements from the National School Lunch Program. Meals purchased without a PIN are not reimbursable. Therefore, effective January 2, 2014, all meals purchased without a PIN will have an additional charge (and $0.30 for breakfast and $0.60 for lunch).
For more information, please visit the HCPSS website.
