H-BC Secondary Families:

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!   This week was a fast week at HBC Secondary!  We spent the day before break celebrating Christmas and wrapping up the 2021 year.  

Thank you HBC G.R.A.D. Student Council for planning a great week at school.  From Spirit Dress Days, Plaid Out Basketball Game, Christmas Olympics, Hot Chocolate During Lunch, Deck the Halls and a visit from the Grinch and St. Nick, I can’t think of a better secondary school to learn and have fun.  See pictures on HBC Website, Facebook or Twitter.

Looking Ahead - Military Week - January 10 - 14th, 2022 (New)

As you know, a major priority is to make sure our students are College and Career Ready!  One career that allows students to pursue both their career and college goals is the military.  Options in the military have changed immensely over the past decade.  Many of our students will never know these options.   During the week of January 10th- 14th, 2022, all 9th - 12th secondary students will be invited to a presentation by the following military branches to discuss options for our students if they choose to join the specific military branch.  This opportunity will occur during College and Career Ready Time (11:35 - 12:05) Monday through Friday.
