Message from Principal Nicole Pease
Hello HES families, I hope you have had a great week. It has been lots of fun spending time in the classrooms. The staff at HES is so dedicated to our students and ensuring each is making progress. While in the Health/Wellness class, I was able to help students learn and practice jumping rope. Students were so excited to have the chance to work on their own or work together with a longer jump rope. Seeing the pride on students faces when they were able to successfully jump rope was priceless!
As I reflect upon all I am thankful for, I want to express my sincere thanks to all of you for your support as I have stepped into the Principalship at HES. I am so thankful for the amazing staff at HES and the caring students, it is a lvoely community! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and also a lovely Thanksgiving surrounded by family and friends! Nicole

Brrr...it's cold outside!
First Friends Preschool with Ms. Jenn
Kindergarten with Mrs. Goodington
1st Grade with Miss Harrington
2nd Grade with Mrs. Shultz
3rd Grade with Mrs. LaCroix
In 3rd grade we are learning how to measure liquids in liters and milliliters and finding the weight of items in grams and kilograms. Students are also working on telling time and determining elapsed time in math. We are wrapping up a bird research project in Science, which we will be inviting families to check out after our Thanksgiving break. We are hard at work writing opinion pieces about the best meal of the day. In grammar, we are learning all about the different types of nouns. We are focusing on plural nouns, singular nouns, proper nouns, common nouns, and pronouns. Students are also reading an expository text titled "Penguin Chick". Through this text, students are learning all about how penguins survive in such a cold environment and what it takes for a penguin chick to hatch and thrive. We are learning how to use a table of contents, headings, and a glossary while doing this reading.
4th Grade with Mrs. Nevins
Health/Wellness with Mrs. Parker

On Tuesday, students will be participating in a turkey trot closing circle. They will challenge themselves to complete laps and have fun with our school community.

Water Bottles & Reusable Utensils
In an effort to reduce our single plastic use, please remember to send in reusable utensils with your child for snacks and home lunches.
Please also remember to send your child in with a reusable water bottle every day, even as we get into the colder months. (We are not currently using the water fountains due to COVID precautions.)
Do you have any extra water bottles or reusable utensils at home that you are not using and would be willing to donate to HES? If so, please send them in with your child and we will keep them in the classrooms to use as extras for those who forget theirs. Thank you!
