8th Graders have an Opportunity to Leave a Lasting Legacy

As a departing 8th grader, your child has the opportunity to join our yearly tradition and leave a legacy at Hughes: A bit of goodwill and wisdom for the many children who will walk the same hallways. It's easy and simple. Choose a quote, submit for approval and choose the location of your quote in designated spots on the corridors of Hughes Academy. The quote will be placed on the walls the month of May and remain in place for one year. First come, First serve. After one year, to make room for the next class of 8th graders, your quote will be moved to another location in the building. If you are interested, please click here to print and fill out a form for submittal and approval.
