Author Skype with Chris Grabenstein

  • Author Skype with Chris Grabenstein

    On April 18, Mrs. Koziarz's class had the opportunity to Skype with author, Chris Grabenstein. Students enjoyed a video question and answer session with the author right from our very own classroom! We had the chance to ask several questions about our most recent class read aloud, The Island of Dr. Libris. Mr. Grabenstein not only answered our questions, but he also gave students great tips and tricks regarding reading and writing. Our class is looking forward to reading another fan favorite from Mr. Grabenstein, Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library.

Mrs. Stay's Awesome Class Projects

  • Mrs. Stay's 3rd grade students were learning about human modifications that we make to our environment and how they can lead to unintended harm.  Students chose a topic (Urbanization, agriculture, desertification, mining, building of dams, etc.), then researched the positive and negative consequences the modification has on our environment.  Finally. they used their research to create an article about the modification using the Pages app.  Awesome job!

HP Alma Mater

  • Though we’re but a country high school,
    Our name unknown to fame
    To our colors we are loyal,
    Our heritage we claim;

    We defend the gold and purple,
    Wherever we may be,
    Our hearts forever faithful
    To the old school in H.P.


    The purple hue is royal,
    The gold is pure and fine,
    And both are king’s apparel
    Ordained by word divine,

    Therefore, royal are our colors,
    To them we true must be,
    To show we love and honor
    The old school in H.P.
