HYMAN FINE NEWS FLASH

December 10, 2022

WE ARE HAWK HEROES

We Shine at Hyman Fine!

Blue Pride Starts Here!

Dear Hyman Fine Families,


HFES had an amazing couple of days towards the end of this past week. Thursday afternoon all grades were able to attend a performance by the Bamidale drummer/dancers. Firefighter Lewin visited all of our Kindergarten classes to discuss fire safety. We ended the week right with the PTO sponsored Holiday Lights drive thru.


  • THANK YOU to our PTO for sponsoring the performances by the Bamidale drummer/dancers. I am not sure who enjoyed it more the staff or the students.


  • THANK YOU to the HFES PTO for sponsoring such and AMAZING event.


  • THANK YOU to all the staff that volunteered to be part of this event.


  • THANK YOU to all the families that made donations to help make this even a huge success.

More information is forthcoming.


In addition to downloading the app, guardians will need to set up their accounts. This can be done by going to the link contained in the email sent to all guardians yesterday (and following the directions)
