Message From the Principal

  • Welcome new and old Hawks to the 2020-21 school year!  

    Mr. Gamble Hello, Hawk Families!  However you are joining us – in person or via distance-learning, we’re glad you’re with us.  As I said last week, I wish just moving into our Swing School campus was the hardest thing we had to do!  Now that’s the easy part.  Watching the Swing School campus come together is amazing.  It’s a swarm of activity and all of the modular classroom units have the “new classroom” smell.  (If you can’t smell it, then go home immediately!) We still have far more unknowns about what school will look like than we have knowns.   One thing I am sure of, however, is that the dedicated faculty & staff of Howard Bishop will do all they can to make our students’ experience safe & rewarding.  We are all human, with children & parents to look after just as all of you do.  Everyone “turned to” to make the distance learning work when we shut down schools on March 13th, and we’ll do the same as we venture into the unknown.  It’s our job to provide the calm when everything else is stormy.  

    Michael Gamble
