September Breakfast and Lunch menu is attached.
During Friday night's football game we will recognize all youth and middle school football players. Any flag, youth tackle, or middle school football players who wear their jersey will be admitted into the game for free (family members who also attend must pay entry). We are proud of all the work these future Wildcats put in during the fall!!
From the HHS Athletic Director - Friday, September 6th is our first home football game vs. Garner-Hayfield/Ventura. The 9th grade game will start at 4:45 with the Varsity game starting at 7:30 PM. Elementary students have seating in the separate set of bleachers located just south of the main stadium bleachers. As always, you are welcome to come be a spectator. We expect you to sit in the stands, either in the areas reserved for your age group or with your parents. Under no circumstances should you be running around, playing football or any other game. You are expected to stay on the home side of the field in the bleachers at all times. None of our students should be on the opposing sideline or in their bleachers. Cheer loudly in a positive manner and support our Wildcats! Thank you for your cooperation.
Cyclone/Hawkeye Event is coming to Humboldt on Thursday, September 12th. The boys and girls may wear their favorite team colors this day. We will be able to watch the short parade on Sumner Avenue and then Chamber of Commerce will have picnic tables set up for us to have a picnic lunch. Students will have the option to bring their own cold lunch or have a school sack lunch. The menu for our picnic will be Turkey & Cheese Sandwich, banana, carrots, broccoli, Cheese Its, and milk.
