Giving Back to the Community, April 13th

In appreciation for the support of our community, the students at HSH would like to “give back” to Hay Springs. We are seeking businesses, groups, organizations, and even the elderly who are in need of help. Teacher supervised groups of students are willing to wash windows, stock shelves, clean shops, rake lawns or scoop snow if necessary. We are willing to assist in any way needed.

Our “Give Back to the Community Day” is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on April 13, 2016. In the event of inclement weather, April 27, 2016, will be the alternate date.  If you would like to be added to our list, please call the high school office at 638-4434.
