Hough Squawk

5th graders have the opportunity to work with Mrs. Parise on a regular Hough Street news show! Segments will be written and recorded over Zoom during lunch times and on students' own time. Any interested 5th grader should ask Mrs. Parise for a permission slip.

Not in 5th grade? We still need your help! 

Each week, the 5th graders will take time to answer your burning questions.  Do you have something you have always wondered about?  A question you are curious about?  Use this form to submit your question and it just might be featured on the next episode of The Hawk Squawk.

Know someone who has shown great character?

We would love to recognize them on our show!  Each episode, we will choose one amazing Hough Hawk to highlight as our Student of Character! You can nominate someone here.
