Hugh Bish staff, students, parents, and community met the “principal challenge” of earning $500.00 in just four days of our LPS Foundation’s “Change for Change” donation drive. Your giving hearts blew me away, and I am so proud of everyone’s spirit of giving. These donations come right back into the schools by providing grants for teachers to purchase the resources to enhance their teaching. In the last year, this foundation has purchased ukuleles and art supplies for our specials teachers and reading materials for our kindergarten. Way to go, Knights.
Last Friday, the principal, Sherry Havron, had the honor of hosting the first LPS “Breakfast with the principal” The selected students were the 5th grade Noble Knights, a group who apply for jobs and duties throughout the school. Our cafeteria manager, Teresa Whitley, dressed in true chef fashion and served a hot breakfast to us as we had time to discuss etiquette and leadership. We had such a good time! A huge thank you to the Hugh Bish kitchen staff who helped prepare the breakfast (Mrs. Wanda McBride and Mrs. Laura Barnes), and to the Child Nutrition staff who attended.
