Guest Speaker - Nelson Linder, NAACP-Austin President
HSS was honored on Wednesday, Jan 14th by our special guest speaker - Mr. Nelson Linder. Mr. Linder is the Austin President of the NAACP.
He spoke to our 4-7th grade students sharing a message inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He focused on reminding our students that it is good to celebrate the day - but it is more important to be living out Dr. King's dream and message everyday.
Thank you so much, Mr. Linder, for taking the time to share such a powerful message with our students.
Check out pictures from the event on our Facebook page.

Make the Pledge to Stop Bullying in Schools
October is National Bullying Prevention Month. During the month of October our school joined the anti-bullying movement by uniting together on October 22nd and wearing orange. Students also contributed to a unity chain that is now hanging in our cafeteria. In addition to our schoolwide efforts - the 7th grade character education class with their teacher, Ms. Hubbard, made anti-bullying pledges.
Although October is over, it is never too late to make your pledge to stand up and do the right thing. Click read more... below to check out our Facebook Album entitled "Stop Bullying" to see more of their pictures and pledges.
We are so excited to have so many people interested in volunteering on campus. In order to be a volunteer on campus we must conduct a volunteer background check on you. This is required annually - so if you filled one out last year, we need to do this again this year.
This background check is a safety measure in place to provide a safe environment for all our students. We truly value your participation and investiment in our students' education.
Parents - when your students see you here they see first hand how much you value their education! Thank you for all that you do!
