Our office staff, counselors, custodians, maintenance staff, and teachers have been busy organizing, reorganizing, cleaning up from the past year and preparing for the coming one. While there is still plenty to do prior to September 4, we are getting closer each day.

Principal Coffee Held at Center School

As way of introducing herself to both parents and students, new Center School Principal Lauren Dubeau held a meet and greet coffee on August 14th. The forum provided an informal way for both children attending Center School this fall and their parents to be able with talk to her one-on-one.

Not only was the coffee an opportunity for parents to meet Dubeau, but it also provided them with a chance to address any expectations, concerns, or ideas by writing them on a sticky note and posting them up on a bulletin board. It also gave children some time to work on their coloring skills. Overall, parents say that they are very impressed with Dubeau.

Watch the HCAM News video to hear more.

The End of Summer at Sandy Beach

A sign of the end of the summer season; Sandy Beach officially closed for the summer on August 18th. Lifeguards say that the beach, which is operated by the Parks and Recreation Commission, was quieter over the past few weeks as the weather began to cool off. When HCAM News visited Sandy Beach a few days before the close, it was empty, until campers from the Playground Camp came down for some fun in the sun.
