PTA News:

FUN RUN is here!  Students in tracks 1,2,3 have started fundraising with their class to reach their class goal of $1000 and Tr 1 and 3 are participating in their RUN today!  

Track 2 and 4 will get going with their fundraiser next week.  Each class has a link to make donations to.  Students are encouraged to share that link with friends and family to help raise money for our school.

Our goal this year is to raise $38,000! The next two weeks will be very exciting for your student, your family, and the staff at HES!

Your donations will help provide:

  • Grants for each teacher
  • Grants for each grade level
  • Cultural arts presentations for the entire school
  • New library books and new technology.

Help us reach our milestone of $1000 per class by donating today! Fundraising for ALL students will continue through April 29!

You can also donate by cash or check by sending it in to your student's teacher.
