As we gather around our dinner tables with family and friends, we find time to share our thankfulness for many good things in our lives. While we are not sitting at the same dinner table, we can still celebrate being an HUSD family. This year, more than ever, it is important to remember what and who we are thankful for. We are extremely thankful for all of our Higley Families, including students, parents, employees, and the greater Higley community. We are thankful for the patience, grace, and flexibility that all of you have shown during this school year.
