Upcoming Events

Spirit Week is January 23-27 – Be making plans to participate

Spirit Week is next week and we are encouraging our student body to participate each day!  Any Upper School student not participating in Spirit Week is expected to abide by the regular dress code.

  • Monday – Character Day (dress like a famous real-life or fictitious character)
  • Tuesday – Casual Day (dress in comfortable clothing from pajamas to sweats to jeans)
  • Wednesday – Decades Day (dress in retro clothing from a particular decade)
  • Thursday – Crazy Day (the name says it all – dress in mismatched clothes or costumes. Be creative! You may wear temporary face or hair paint if applied at home rather than at school)
  • Friday – School Spirit Day (Navy, gold and white!)

Please be mindful to keep clothing modest. Upper School students, please remember no shorts allowed.


Homecoming will take place on Friday, January 27. All HPCS families are encouraged to come enjoy the homecoming festivities!
