A special shout out to 6th grader Joshika for your winning Photo - Honeybees - for this year's PTA Reflections theme "I Matter Because"

"Honeybees play a huge role in our environment, without them we wouldn't have the goods we use today. They pollinate flowers and plants and they matter widely over the world. This relates to the theme because honeybees DO matter and they ARE important to all living things."🐝👍

Thank you so much to our HGMS PTA for providing our amazing faculty & staff a Thanksgiving Grab & Go lunch today! We are so thankful for our PTA!
