Today students and staff are happy to "Rock Your Socks" to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day by wearing brightly colored, mismatched socks. March 21 is symbolic because people with Down syndrome have 3 copies of their 21st chromosome. Socks were chosen because the karyotype of Ds chromosomes actually looks like mismatched socks! We have pairs of mismatched socks available to purchase in the office as a fundraiser for the Down Syndrome Association of Delaware for $2.00 a pair.

Did you know that approximately 12.7 million tons of plastic end up in the ocean every year? Red Clay School District is encouraging students and staff to help reduce that number by choosing a reusable water bottle. From now until May 12, HB will be competing with other schools throughout the district to use and not lose a reusable water bottle at school rather than buying a single use plastic bottle. Keep track of your water bottle and fill it at the refill stations around the building. Every first Monday of the month, refill station usage will be tracked to see which school saves the most water bottles from ending up in landfills. Let's all do our part to keep the sea plastic free by choosing a reusable bottle.
