Message from Administration

Welcome Back
Ms. Danielle Faulkner
Educational Director

I hope everyone has had a relaxing and fun summer break! We are so excited to see all of your smiling faces again! It is our pleasure to welcome you all to the 2023 – 2024 school year! I would like to welcome all of our new families. We are excited to share with you all that HATB has to offer and believe you will soon feel as we do- that HATB is a special place for our scholars. Our educators, support staff, families, and other education partners are ready to welcome you into the HATB family.

As has been our mission at HATB, we will continue to strive for academic excellence and social and emotional well-being for all of our students while looking through a lens of equity and inclusion. We will work together to create a solid foundation for our students so that they have the opportunity to become self-directed learners, collaborative teammates, critical thinkers, and responsible citizens. 

HATB’s outstanding educators create the foundation for your child’s academic success. In addition, a large part of HATB’s success can be attributed to its active and engaged parents. I am looking forward to continuing our collaboration of providing your children with an effective and engaging educational experience. As always, we will look to our families to be positive partners in their children’s educational journey. The HATB staff has always made a priority of working together as a caring and compassionate learning community with professionalism, teamwork, action, and expertise. We will always put the best interests of our students at the center of our purpose. Join us in ensuring the success of all HATB students by participation in the HATB PTO. 

As always, my door is open and our team welcomes your input. Please feel free to contact me via email at  [email protected] or call to make an appointment to speak with me to discuss any ideas you feel will make this the best year yet!
