Team (Pod) Names:
HP students have spoken! Prior to ending last school year, our current fifth and sixth grade students were polled as to how to name each grade team (pod). Students voted to name each grade team after animals. Once the school year has begun, each team of students will vote as to what specific animal the team will be known as. As soon as complete, information will be shared to our families.
