Thanksgiving Gratitude Grams This Week

The HTHMA Parent Association and the Interact Club will be selling Gratitude Grams this week.  For only $1 you can send a treat plus a message of gratitude or appreciation to a friend, teacher , staff member or student!    Sales of Gratitude Grams will begin Monday, Nov. 16th during lunch time (through Thursday's lunch) and in the mornings before school Tuesday through Friday.  They will also be sold during the evening exhibitions this week and will be delivered before the Thanksgiving Break.  The funds will support HTHMA Teachers and the Interact Club's Wounded Warrior Project.

Parents, it's easy to show gratitude for your own children, their teachers, or other school staff (including crossing guards!). Just write a message of gratitude, write who it's for (if a student, include  their grade & advisor's name) and include $1 for each message. Put in a sealed  envelope, write INTERACT on the outside of the envelope,  and ask your student to deliver to the Interact club's table during lunch or before school.  Messages with a goodie will be delivered throughout the week.  Don't miss this opportunity to show Gratitude!  Click here to see the Gratitude Gram Order Form.
