Congratulations to the HHS Marching Hawks for earning 3rd place out of 28 bands in the Legend Marching Festival last weekend!  The Marching Hawks also competed in the CBA Regional competition on Monday and earned 6th place in their class.  Great work, band!  

It's time to celebrate! It's National School Lunch Week! Just by eating every day this week you increase your chances to win Elitches tickets! That's right-just eat a healthy, delicious meal & tickets may be yours. Just in time to get spooked at the best Halloween attraction in Denver. Three tickets per grade level, winners will be announced on October 16th
