HES Weekly Announcements 5.15.20

 It has been amazing to witness our students continuing to perform throughout our remote learning.  Two weeks ago, approximately 100 third graders performed virtually a presentation they have been working on in music.  Please check out their performance - 3rd Grade Joust!

 Last night we held our Annual Art Reflections Contest, virtually.  Twenty-three students submitted pieces of art ranging from two-dimensional, tiny art, photography and literature.  All students were recognized and had the opportunity to share their art work.  It was awesome!

 In addition, Conor in Ms. Poulsen’s kindergarten class said the Pledge of Allegiance on QDR Radio representing HES! Way to go Conor!
