Teacher and Instructional Assistant of the Year:

We are so happy to announce Teacher of the Year for 2021-2022.  Our staff voted and identified Ms. Rebecca Townsley, Grade 2 Track 4 to represent HES this year as our Teacher of the Year.  Ms. Townsley has taught at HES for many years. In addition, she works with our students after school at the Y-learning Program and teaches Summer Learning.  She certainly has a passion for helping all students.

Staff also voted on our Instructional Assistant of the Year.  Representing HES is Mr. William Howard. Mr. Howard has been a kindergarten and special needs Instructional Assistant.  He builds wonderful relationships with all students.

We are so proud of both of these staff members!

Family Game Night:

We are so glad so many families joined is last night for Virtual Game Night. Families enjoyed doing a scavenger hunt, karaoke, dance party, pumpkin drawings, Mr. Brodnick’s escape room, Scattergories, and bingo.  Great fun was had by all!

WCPSS BOE has identified Friday November 12 as a day of reflection for staff and students.   Students will be off Nov 11-14.  Please take advantage of this time to take a break from school, enjoy the outdoors and prepare for the upcoming holiday seasons.
