A few notes from Mrs. Yantzer . . .

Have you ever noticed that the word “THANKSGIVING”

has both the words “thanks” and “giving”? I sincerely hope that during this holiday everyone has the opportunity to enjoy their families and we all need to remember the values of gratitude and giving.

I am grateful everyday for our amazing HK8 staff, students and our community. We truly have a very special school and I am honored to serve each of my students, staff and community!

Enjoy your Thanksgiving with family and friends!

With Hotchkiss Pride Always, Mrs. Yantzer

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
