Every Moment Counts

Students may be dropped off as early as 7:15 am. The tardy bell rings at 7:45 am, and direct instruction begins promptly. Please have your child at school by 7:40 am so that your child will not miss instruction. If your child wants to eat breakfast, then please get them to school by 7:30 in order to allow time for breakfast. We don't want to waste a second of instructional time. We also continue instruction until dismissal time. Early dismissals mean that your child is missing valuable instructional time. Please help us make the most of every day by having your child arrive on time and stay until the end of the day.

PTO Calendar Fundraiser

HCJ PTO is ready to GROW and GLOW!

With your help, we can raise funds necessary to benefit our Students, Teachers, and School. We can offset costs of supplies, field trips, and so much more!

How? Each student will receive a calendar depicting the month of September. Family and Friends can choose a date and donate the corresponding amount. For example, if the date September 10th is chosen, the student will collect a $10 donation from that person. The goal is to collect donations for every day in September. However, September 15th will be special! Teachers will be able to put wish list items for their classroom on that date. Instead of donating money, those who choose that date can donate the wish list items (items will be equivalent to $15 or less).

By receiving donations for a full calendar, each student has the potential to raise $465 for HCJES! Plus gift their teachers with some much needed classroom materials.

Due September 30th (Money must be turned in before or by this date to qualify for prizes)

Please turn in all money collected at once. Each child will have an envelope with this packet that will include their name, grade, and homeroom teacher.

Prize: Those who receive donations for a full calendar ($465 and wish list items) will receive a catered lunch at school!

The class with the most donations will receive an ice cream party!
