Track 1 & 3 families, this exciting day is on Wednesday, October 4th.  On the morning of Oct. 4th, the schedule will be as follows:

Our staff will greet students at the soccer fields and escort them to HES.  Parents are strongly encouraged to walk with their students if possible. Walkers from Smith Creek will begin walking at 8:15am.

  • Remaining at School - We will have staff at the front entrance for any student not participating as well as in the cafeteria for breakfast and in the main office for medication and regular duties.

We are also in need of volunteers to help with the event. Please sign up here Fall Festival Volunteers to help with the event.


We are also looking for more vendors for our Fall Festival! This is a great place for local businesses to advertise and support our school in the process. Last year, we had over 700 people attend our Fall Fest.Tables are $100. If you'd like to become a vendor, please fill out this form Fall Festival Vendor Application  Or email with any questions.

Mark your calendars! One of our favorite Spirit Nights is coming next month. Culver's Spirit Night will be here October 10th!


PTA membership is open for the new school year. Visit Join the PTA to become a PTA member for the 2023-2024 school year! All members must rejoin every year. So even if you were a PTA member last year, you will still need to sign up again to become a member for the 2023-2024 school year. We welcome and love volunteers, and appreciate all those willing to take time out of their schedules to attend PTA meetings. However, joining the PTA does not mean you have to volunteer or attend meetings. Joining requires no time commitment. Your membership dues alone help support our school.
