Hyannis Area Schools continues to do great things
 
I hope to see everyone at Parent Teachers Conferences tonight-One Building One School One Family
 
Changes are being made to improve our communication with our Patrons.
1. New Powerschool log-in method to insure that parents can view student grades conveniently
(Mr. Gould will get that info out or contact him at the school)
2. A phone system messaging service to quickly get out calendar changes, school closures, etc.
(Make sure that the school has your updated contact information)
 
TOMORROW NIGHT THERE WILL BE A VERY IMPORTANT MEETING IN THE AUDITORIUM, AS OUR SCHOOL ATTORNEY WILL BE HERE TO DISCUSS SOCIAL MEDIA ISSUES. THE MISUSE OF SOCIAL MEDIA LIES AT THE HEART OF MANY PROBLEMS IN OUR SCHOOLS TODAY. PLEASE PLAN ON ATTENDING IT WILL BE WORTH YOUR WHILE.
6:00PM IN THE LECTURE HALL
 
Thursday evening will be exciting as Coronation/Burning of H/Victory march will begin at 7pm

The Hyannis girls volleyball team is to be congratulated on an OUTSTANDING, GUTTY performance last night as they overcame a 2-0 deficit to defeat Mullen in 5 sets.

I hope everyone had the best possible Holiday Season.  Now it is time to get after 2017.  2017 will be an eventful one for Hyannis Area Schools.  We will see a school coming out of the ground and open in the fall, Hyannis Area Schools will continue in a school improvement process and hopefully  celebrate becoming nationally and internationally accredited.  Exciting times and a lot of hard work ahead for Hyannis Area Schools .

 

Congratulations to the girls basketball team for winning the Loomis Christmas tournament, next year the tournament will be in Maywood with the following year(2018) in Hyannis.  The Longhorn teams will be in action at Arthur tomorrow (Jan 3rd ) 5:00 Girls Varsity followed by Boys Varsity(no JV).  On Friday the teams travel to Big Springs 4:00 Boys JV 2 qtrs followed by Girls and Boys Varsity.  The wrestling team returns to action on Saturday at Oshkosh.

 

FULL SPEED AHEAD!!

2017 FEAR THE HORNS!!

 

12/21/16

BLESSINGS TO YOU AND YOURS

 

The holiday season is the best time of year.  A simple but true statement.  Truer in a place like Hyannis.  Hyannis is a great community and the school reflects the community.  The staff and students at Hyannis Schools reflect how good public education can be.  The parents of all of our students should be proud of the young men and women they are raising.  I consider it a blessing to be working in such a setting.

 

I believe that Hyannis is fully capable of being the best D2 school in the state.  The only obstacle we face is ourselves,   Exciting things are in store for 2017 and you can be a part of it.  I am inviting you to help in our Advanced Ed process and also asking for your help in moving into the new building.  Please contact me if you are interested.

 

I wish all of you a blessed Christmas as we celebrate the birth of Jesus.  Let the true meaning of Christmas shine in your heart and let your light shine.  Merry Christmas!
