Ghost Stories  

 August 29, 2014


What is "Ghost Stories"?

With so much information to read, how do I know where to look? 

Ghost Stories is the bi-monthly HGP online newsletter for families.  It is intended to be a one-stop place to see all the important must-know headlines at HGP.  Ghost Stories is posted by email, on Facebook, Twitter and archived on the HGP Website.  If you are a "just tell me what I need to know" person, Ghost Stories will always provide you with that information. 

The newsletter also has easy to find links to the school calendar, Mothers' Guild and Fathers' Association and the school directory.

Each edition of Ghost Stories contains a short survey.  We invite parents to respond to three short questions to help identify ways for HGP to improve and gather helpful information.

HGP also maintains active news and social media pages.  These pages contain frequently posted interest items such as fun facts, photos, videos, sports scores and retweets from local newspapers.  These are meant to be interactive pages for the school and members of the entire community (students, parents, alumni and friends) to share short content.  You can follow HGP on Facebook and Twitter.
