Miss Representation Film Screening has been Rescheduled

On February 28, 2013 at 6:30 p.m., we will host a free screening of the movie Miss Representation. This is the rescheduled date from the night in the Fall when we had to postpone due to weather.  There will be child care available for $5 per child, and we hope to see lots of moms, dads, guardians, grandparents, teachers, administration and RIC students and faculty for a viewing of this important movie about the portrayal of girls and women in the media.  Depending upon the size of the crowd, the movie will be shown in either the teacher’s lounge or the cafeteria.  You can get more information about the movie at http://www.missrepresentation.org/ or watch the trailer below.  Hope to see you there.  So that we can coordinate on venue, please contact Machua Millett as soon as possible if you plan to attend and if you will need child care.

Volunteers Needed for the Scholastic Book Fair Next Week

Hi HBS Parents/Caregivers!

Want a chance to get to see your child visit the BookFair?  Want a fun, easy way to contribute some time to help make this fun activity even more successful?

It’s time for the winter HBS Scholastic Book Fair “Story Laboratory” (Tues Feb12 – Thurs Feb14) and we’re hoping at least 1 parent from each grade can help out this time.   SIGN UP for your choice of the many 2-hour blocks possible  between 8-2p or Tuesday night during Family Pasta Night. (Note: teachers have reserved their class visit time so of you’re interested in that specific time let me know).  

If you’d rather help ‘behind the scenes’, you might want to donate refreshments for Preview Day 2/11, to help Set Up 2/8, Pack Up 2/14, or help divide up the brochures for teacher mailboxes.

Follow this link below to go to Volunteer Spot to sign up for any of the various ways to help: http://tinyurl.com/HBSbookfairFEB
