Manners weekly focus at HVCC

DEL NORTE — Hi, community members! We hope everyone had an enjoyable and safe Halloween! We are excited to welcome a new month and all the fun activities along with it!

We will be taking the kiddos swimming at the Sand Dunes Pool every Friday until Nov. 19. Following Thanksgiving break, we will have new Fabulous Friday activities planned for the kiddos. Stay tuned!

This past week, the theme of after-school activities was, “Manners.” The goal of the week was to show the children that learning good manners is a great way to make a good first impression and reflect positively on a person’s character. One example activity from the week was the, “Hands are for...” activity in which the children learn that hands are not for hurting and how hands can be used in a positive way.

In the HVCC sports world, the Del Norte Orange and Black girls’ basketball teams are doing well! Games will continue throughout November, finishing with a tournament from Nov. 15-20. Basketball schedules are posted on our website, Boys’ basketball and K-2nd grade co-ed basketball registration is available on our website as well. Registration will close on Nov. 15.

We are excited to announce an art opportunity for HVCC students in the sixth grade and above! Students will complete a two-part art project, including one piece of art and a video presentation. The art will then be auctioned off and proceeds will go toward an all-expenses paid overnight trip to Denver. Keep an eye on our website to check out the pieces as they are posted. If you have any questions, we are happy to answer them! Stop by our front desk or give us a call at 719-657-2172.

We hope everyone has a great week!
