Parents & guardians, please join us at this year’s Open House Wednesday, September 14th from 5:30pm-7:00pm, where you will have the opportunity to visit classrooms, speak with teachers, and get a sneak-peak into the day of an HTMMA student.  Back to School Night is planned for parents/guardians only.  Please make alternative arrangements for your student(s).

6th Grade Camp!

6th Grade Families- please review the important camp information that came home with your student during the first week of school.  The camp packet reviews dates, payments plans, and more! The blue financial aid survey form must be turned in as soon as possible!  An envelope was provided for privacy.  This survey really helps us get a sense of what our fundraising goal will be this year.  Questions?  Please email:  Mrs. Carter ecarter@hightechhigh.org or Mr. Brady bphilips@hightechhigh.org.  Thank you!
