Roses are red, 
Violets are blue, 
Always remember.. 
I do love you. 

Can you believe we are half way through the school year? We have so much to celebrate. 

February 3rd-7th is National School Counseling Week and I would like to say thank you to Ms. Talley. She works so hard to bring different workshops and assemblies for the entire school and is always available for our students, staff, and parents. She is our SUPERSTAR! 

Join us as we explore the evolution of  dance  and music in three different performances for Black History Month. Join us on Mondays, Feb. 3rd, 10th, and 24th at 8:00AM in the Multi Purpose Room. 

Please stop by Haines on Friday, February 28th as we turn a room into a museum as we highlight African Americans and the Right to Vote. 



您可以相信我們已經完成了全學年一半嗎? 我們有很多值得慶祝的事情。

2月3日至7日是全國學校輔導週,我想對教務主任Talley女士表示感謝, 她非常努力地為整個學校帶來不同的講座和聚會,並且為我們的學生,教職員工和家長提供服務, 她是我們的超級明星!
