Head of School

Hello HNMCS community:

Spring is in the air!

What a wonderful time of year. It is so good to have the girls playing sports and going on field trips, and yes, returning to camp! May brings with it much excitement and many activities - including the return of the Spring Café and The Mother Daughter Tea.

As the year winds down, and it comes very quickly from this point, we want to remind everyone to stay safe while we are opening up the school. We are asking that every guest who enters is masked even as the girls are now mask friendly. There is a lot coming up and we want the students and staff to remain healthy.

We look forward to these last weeks of school and all of the grad activities that start today with Legacy Day! Congratulations to these 8 girls on a fabulous 8 years with HNMCS - we appreciate your long term commitment to this wonderful school and community.

Although the year has been mixed with uncertainty at times, I want to thank you all for your continued commitment to the school. We know it has not always been easy for the girls and we are thankful for the warmer weather, the sun, and the return to camp! Enjoy these last few weeks and I hope to see you all at our HNMCS community events.

With appreciation,
Carrie Hughes-Grant
