Good afternoon!

It has been great to have had a few full weeks under our belt after an interesting start to January weather-wise.  Students have done a nice job of settling into routines and expectations (just in time for some schedule changes with conferences coming up!)  Some of the cooler weather returns this week; students need to have coats for recess when our temperatures drop.  Thanks in advance for sending these along!

Our music programs continue this week; students are excited to showcase the work they continue to put in each day!  3rd grade’s performance is next up.  They are scheduled to perform this Thursday, February 15th, at 7:00 in the High School Auditorium.  There are a few events occurring at the Middle School that evening; please be sure to utilize parking in the High School lot (between the HS and softball field.)

Our conference schedule is now live.  Conferences will take place on the 20th and 22nd of February.  Please sign up for a slot at this link: https://www.myconferencetime.com/humboldt/ 

2023-2024 Class composites are ready to download!
