Fun at the HBMH 6th Annual Fall Festival!

A BIG thank you to our entire community for coming out to our recent Fall Festival; we had a record turn-out this year! This has always been a successful fundraiser for us. It gets better and better every year. Thank you all for coming out and supporting our school!

Face painting, henna art and hair/nail salon was a big hit!
Thank you, Ms. Insiya for creating such lovely henna for our guests! Visit Insiya’s Temporary Body Art homepage for background on her beautiful work.



Of course, everyone’s costumes were nothing short of amazing.


Our First Annual Chili Cook-Off was a huge success! Congrats to Ms. Maya for winning on overall presentation and flavor of chili! Thank you to all of our participants!

Thanks to Jay’s help, our concessions this year included smoked ribs, chicken, and hot dogs…yum!


The petting zoo came fully equipped with chickens, roosters, a calf, piglets, bunnies, and a few other furry friends.


Mr. Monty was the “tractor conductor” and towed the kids in the barrels all night. They absolutely loved it!


We had THREE bounce houses this time, which included obstacle courses and slides.


Another “congratulations” goes to all of our silent auction basket winners. With your help, we raised over $1,800!


Plenty of smiles to go around! This had to have been one of the funnest fall festivals yet.

On behalf of the entire HBMH community, thank you to all who came out and supported our school. This event is always the largest fundraiser of the year for us. With your continued support, we raised funds that will go towards the growth and improvement of our school!

Meet Floppy! Our Newest Apple Community Member

Today, Ms. Patti surprised everyone with our newest Apple classroom pet…Floppy! Floppy is a 7 month old, extremely gentle and loving rabbit. Our friends welcomed Floppy with open arms. We discussed proper care etiquette and the right/wrong way to pet him. So far, he’s adjusted to the new environment wonderfully!


Introducing Floppy to the classroom. Everyone was so excited to finally meet him!


We learned how to gently pet Floppy using two fingers.


We take turns watching our new friend as he settles into his home.


Our Apple friends were so calm and quiet as Floppy explored his new environment. He stopped by everyone individually to give them a sniff and a “bunny kiss”.


Welcome to your new home, sweet Floppy.
