Congratulations to our Morning Flag Ceremony Scholars



Each week special scholars are chosen by their teachers to help raise the flag and lead our school in the Pledge of Allegiance. Our helpers also lead the school in our Patriotic song. These outstanding students exemplify scholarly conduct and serve as excellent role models at Hidden Hills.

Happy New Year!  This year we are encouraging all of our teachers, staff, students, and parents to select #ONEWORD to guide them through 2018.  Instead of the typical New Year's resolution, think about and choose that #ONEWORD that will keep you moving forward in a positive way in 2018. My #ONEWORD is FOCUS!  It is my charge as the instructional leader to maintain focus on teaching and learning.  Here's to a year of positive energy and focus!


Coffee with the Principal is planned for Friday, January 12th at 8:00 am, in the library.  I will share information on the Energy Bus School Leadership Journey and what it means to be a “Certified Energy Bus School”.  Please plan to join me for coffee, donuts, and informal conversation!


It’s such an honor to serve as the principal of Hidden Hills Elementary School – Academy of Technology!  Thanks in advance for your continued support and participation in all school programs and activities.  Here’s to a rewarding 2018!
