Reading/Social Studies: We will practice the strategy of reading with a question in mind. This will work on inferring through our reading.

  • Symphony Field Trip Permission slips came home last week. Please send these in ASAP. There is no cost and it is a district event so parent chaperones are not requested.

  • Are you coming to the East Zone Big Event? We can't wait!

  • Exciting news! HVE PTA has signed up for the Amazon Smile program. Amazon will donate 0.5% of all purchases to our PTA made through the smile program. The prices of items, user log-ins and passwords are still the same. The only difference would be to use when logging into Amazon. You could then select Hebron Valley Elementary as the organization you support prompting Amazon to donate 0.5% of the purchase to HVE PTA.

  • Yearbooks are for sale. Order today at for $20.
  • Six Flags Reading Forms are due back on Feb. 11

  • Give HVE a helping hand and join the PTA today! It’s easy to become a member, just go to and register online.
