HUFF SPIRIT WEEK COMING NEXT WEEK
Please join us at Huff Spirit Week next week, January 28 thru February 1. The spirit of Huff is kindness, so all week long students will be asked to recognize the kind acts of their classmates by writing each other "kid kindness cards." We'll also celebrate with themed dress days throughout the week. Spirit Week will culminate in a recess dance party! The themes for each day are:
 MONDAY: Sports Day (sports gear or team wear)
 TUESDAY: Pajama Day
 WEDNESDAY: Crazy Hair & Sock Day
 THURSDAY: Costume Day (a.k.a. 2nd Halloween)
 FRIDAY: Huff Spirit Day (wear your Huff Shirts, jackets, colors or dress like a Hawk!)
