We have had an exciting few weeks at HES.  All students had the pleasure of participating in Field Day last week. We appreciate Mr. Brodnick and all of our parent volunteers assisting with that endeavor.  This week, our Honor’s Chorus, under the direction of Ms. Bailey performed at Meymandi Hall.  These experiences help students practice the 4C’s – collaboration, critical thinking, creativity and communication, outside of the traditional classroom.


In addition, they assist students in demonstrating the positive trait we are focusing on this week, FAIRNESS.  Fairness is defined as not everyone getting the same but everyone getting what they need.  This might be a great dinner conversation to reinforce fairness is demonstrated in all walks of life.

PTA News:

Thank you to everyone who came out to our family dance on March 3rd. The dance was a HUGE success. It was so wonderful to see so many students and families having a great time. We were able to raise over $5000 from our silent auction and raffle to go towards a new shade structure on our playground. If your student won a teacher raffle, please reach out to the teacher directly to arrange a time.
