Thank you to all the HPDS parents, alumni families, Board members, staff and friends who supported our 20th Anniversary Annual Gala this past weekend. Although this was not how we had originally envisioned our gala, we felt the support of our community in so many ways! We could not have made this event a success without the dedication and support of our wonderful HPDS community. Thanks to your combined efforts the event brought in over $200,000 for the Bright Futures Scholarship Fund!


Here is our new official HPDS video.
