Closing Thoughts from the MPA
Phew! As this unprecedented school year comes to a close, we hope that our parent community at the HGM can breathe a collective sigh of relief.  We made it through Zooms, masks, social distancing, and virtual everything!
To our culminating 8th grade families, we wish you all the best as your child - each one of them so bright, capable and ready - moves on to high school.  
To our current 7th grade families, we so hope that your kids can enjoy a "normal" 8th grade year with all the fun stuff that typically happens at the Magnet.  
And to our incredible 6th grade families, we thank you for sticking with us!  May your kids learn to love all the beautiful roses on our campus, may they finally figure out the challenges of lockers and may they continue to make friends....  in-person.
The Magnet Parent Association will be announcing our new Board next week, and we are confident that new leadership and energy will keep our very special program afloat.  
Wishing you all a wonderful summer and thank you again for your support over the past long months.
With warm regards,
Your 2020-2021 MPA Board
