Summer Shorts

May 2019

We are in our final month of school and all the children have grown so much.  It seems like they just walked through the door for the first time and we are now preparing them to either return for our Pre-K program or saying good bye before they enter kindergarten.  This time of the year is filled with mixed feelings of joy and sadness for us as we wish some of our friend’s farewell.


Thank you to those who donated to St. Jude’s Bike-a-thon. HLCC raised $1566 this year.  HLCC has participated in St. Jude’s Bike-a-thon since 2001, raising a total of $27,455.

Our annual Family Fun Night will take place on Friday, May 10th from 6pm to 8pm.  This is a great time for all the families to come together and enjoy food, face painting, crafts, games, and tons of raffle items.

If you would like to donate an item to raffle off, please drop it off to the school office no later than Friday, May 7th.

To make this event a success, we need volunteers! Please click on the link below to see where you can help.  All volunteers will receive 5 FREE tickets to use toward the raffle items. You will not want to miss this opportunity to help serve in your child’s school.

Summer Shorts is a great refresher for those children going to kindergarten or for those new to HLCC.

This is a two-week program in July that runs Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 12:00pm. The cost for each week is $125.00. If you wish to attend both weeks and pre-register by June 1st, your cost is $225.00. This is a savings of $25.00.  Summer shorts will run the weeks of July 8th and July 15th. Flyers were sent out with registration for next year and will be available at Family Fun Day.

There is still availability in the 3-day Preschool PM class and the 2-day Pre-K class for the 2019-2020 school year.  Please see Ms. Lori if you are interested or know anyone who might be.

WELCOME to Ms. Tabatha and Ms. Abby

I would like to take time and welcome two new teachers to HLCC.  Ms. Tabatha and Ms. Abby have been shadowing our current teachers and working with your children.  They are both very high energy and excited to be a part of the HLCC team.

Ms. Tabatha started in February and has been working in classroom C and A.  Her daughter, Hattie is in Ms. Karen and Ms. Amanda’s class.  Tabatha has completed two years of coursework in K-8 interdisciplinary studies at Western Governor’s University.

Ms. Abby started in April and has also been working in classroom C and visiting the other classrooms to learn the different teaching styles of the teachers. Abby also has a daughter, Gwyneth that is in Ms. Karen and Ms. Amanda’s class.  She attended Watkins Memorial High School and has an associate degree in Business Management.

Ms. Tabatha and Ms. Abby will be teaching next year in our Pre-K programs.

This is your last month to pay tuition!! YAY!!
