Dear Harlowton Families, Just a quick update to our bus stops in town starting tomorrow. In the afternoon only, Hillcrest students may now get on the bus to come down to the high school and be dropped off. This will help Hillcrest students who live down in the flats, students who are in extracurricular activities and could use a ride to HHS for practice, and for students of staff members who work at HHS. This means there will be a 5 minute difference in other bus stop times on the East route to accommodate this change. Please share the word and talk with your child if you would like them to utilize this extra bus stop to get home, to practice or otherwise. Thank you, Mrs. B and the Bus Drivers
Happy Thanksgiving to all of our Harlowton School Families! We hope you have a wonderful, safe, and restful long weekend with your loved ones.

Lastly, so much gratitude goes to all the parents who sent in notes of gratitude for our staff here at HPS! We all certainly felt the love. Go Engineers! Mrs. B

Pinwheels of Hope, AJ's Legacy If you knew AJ and his family, they were fighters. From the first time Spanky and Jackie brought AJ home, they were given hope. Hope for kindness. Hope for caring. Hope for community. AJ was special in many ways and needed a little extra hope at times. If you know small towns, then you know Harlowton is full of just the extra hope they needed. From the time AJ was brought home, Harlowton accepted him as he was. He wasn't just a boy who needed hope; he was AJ, the happy, smiling, loving boy who showed everyone when given a little hope and a lot of fight, you could accomplish anything. The Garay family would like to reinvest hope back into the community who gave them so much by starting Pinwheels of Hope, AJ's Legacy. This fund will provide an array of items for kids who just need a little extra hope to get through a tough time. A reminder that people are watching and truly care for our community. Whether it be new school supplies, sports gear, activity ticket, lunch money, coat, shoes, etc. this fund can make it possible for a kid who maybe lost hope and just need a little reminder to keep fighting.
Don't Forget! Harlowton Schools is hosting our Parent Teacher Conferences today, September 26th from 1pm-7pm at the High School and Hillcrest Elementary. We hope to see you there! Go Engineers
