Today is the first day of the Canned Food drive which will go through May 3rd. Donation bins are located in front of the office and whichever class donates the most money will receive ice cream sandwiches and go to the front of the lunch line for two weeks. The two most requested foods are cereal and peanut butter so they will be worth more in the competition. The goal for each class is 50 points.

Prom is this Saturday, April 27th. Grand March will begin at 7:00, doors will open at 6:30. Be sure to arrive by 7:00 if you plan to participate in Grand March. The dance will be from 8:00-11:30.

If you are bringing a guest that does not attend HHS they may not be in middle school or older than 19. You must fill out a Guest Approval form and turn it into the office by Friday, April 26th. No Guest Approval forms will be accepted at the door on Saturday. In addition, all guests must bring a valid photo ID with them to be checked at the front door of the dance.

Please remember that there is still a dress code for dances. Dresses with excessive midriff or cleavage showing will not be permitted.

Also, remember once you leave the dance you will not be permitted to return. If you have any questions see Mr. Rover or Mr. Egging.
