Elementary School Newsletter

March 2023 Elementary Newsletter Banner From the Principal's Desk

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

It’s hard to believe spring is right around the corner! Hopefully, warmer weather will allow us to get outside and enjoy some fresh air.

Lucky Week

Student names will be placed in the “pot at the end of the rainbow” in the office. Each day during the week of March 13-17, five random students and two staff members will be announced as the Lucky Day Winners!

Students and staff will be presented with a special prize donated by PTA! Good Luck!

Science Fair

Please come and recognize the hard work of our future fifth grade scientists. Their projects will be on display in the cafeteria Thursday, March 16, from 6-7:30 PM.

Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) Gertrude Hawk Fundraiser. The proceeds help support students, staff and HES programs!

Pick a Reading Partner (PARP)

Pick a Reading Partner (PARP) is here! This year’s theme is “Let’s Taco ‘Bout Books” and will run March 20-April 3, 2023.

We are asking students to put down their electronics and make a commitment to read a book, magazine,
comic or recipe to themselves, a parent/caregiver, a pet or a friend!

We encourage you to partner with us to instill the love of reading in your child.

HES will host a Family Fun Night on March 30 from 6:00-7:30 PM. Students will participate in a variety of activities as they work to fill their taco.
