A Note from our Principal...
We are very excited to announce that our “Hurley Hawks” will be flying to Santiago, Chile the week before Spring Break as part of our student exchange program. Our students will immerse themselves in establishing deep cross-cultural connections with Chilean students and their community. In May, another group of students will visit South Korea and they, too, will immerse themselves in the Korean culture and its people. Hurley is a world language school; we provide our students with the opportunity to learn English, Spanish, Mandarin and/or Korean. We believe that being bilingual or multi-lingual is not only healthy (memory improvement), but it also opens up a world of job opportunities. The world is changing fast, more companies do business in countries around the world, and they can’t do it without hiring globally minded people who can speak at least one foreign language. At Hurley, we believe that the best way to establish the bonds of peace, to get to know, to understand, and to learn from each other is to share a language. We wish our student travelers the very best.
Once more, thank you for your support!

Congratulations to the following classrooms for having the best attendance during the month of February: 1st Place with 98.29% room 207, in 2nd Place with 97.58% room 308, and in 3rd Place with 96.78% room 108. Thank you parents for teaching your children to be responsible.
Please avoid early dismissals whenever possible. It disrupts learning and creates a strain on our office and teachers. Also, for your information, make sure your children arrive on time in the morning. Any student with three or more tardiness in the semester will have to serve detention.
