“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” ―             Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

As 2020 begins, administrators and teachers want to thank you for sending your child to HHA and for helping make our school great.  School is about learning, dreaming and getting ready for the next grade, high school, college and eventually a good job.  It is also about motivating each other to do our very best.  The best teachers and students work and learn at HHA, and we are grateful to have your family be a part of our family. 

King’s Day is fast approaching.  His message of freedom, non-violence and justice resonate today as, in volatile times, we seek peace abroad, economic security at home and kindness in our neighborhoods and schools.  In the New Year, we hope for just and fair police enforcement and new answers and leaders to address the murders and shootings in Baltimore City.  We hope for sensible and humane immigration enforcement that targets dangerous criminals and permits families to live, work, and attend church and school in peace.  We hope the work of the Kirwan Commission and Strong Schools Maryland will be fully funded by the Maryland General Assembly.  We hope for more space to increase the numbers of HHA families and thus expand our wonderful school.  Finally, we hope that the New Year brings you and yours joy, peace and love.  Happy 2020!
