Happy Service Personnel Day!!

September 23 is Service Personnel Day!

A kind note, a thank you, or a big smile would make our Service Personnel's day. Encourage your children to wish them a great day and thank them for all they do for our school.


We'd like to wish Mr. Wade well as he begins a new adventure at Union Elementary School.

We currently have a substitute, Mr. Akagi! Mr. Akagi is Mr. T's brother and as one student said - he looks like Mr. T but with shorter hair! :)

Our position will be posted for a full time custodian.

Dragons Love Tacos POSTPONED

Out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to postpone Dragons Love Tacos until the Covid case count in Upshur County decreases.

The health of our students and families is very important to us and we don't want to take any changes.

Our TENTATIVE rescheduled date is: October 12 at 5:30 p.m.

We need your input! Please complete the survey at the link below. Survey closes on Sept. 22.

Comfort Closet

Our school has a Comfort Closet - a closet filled with supplies!

If a student needs a change of clothes, shampoo, soap, etc. we have it available.

Each of classrooms will be going on a "field trip" to the comfort closet with Miss Barr in the next few weeks. So, if your child comes home with a personal hygiene item, it is because they visited the comfort closet in our building.

If at any time you need hygiene supplies for your child, please let us know!!

Our Vision, Core Beliefs, and Goal

Our Core Beliefs / Mission

We at HES are dedicated to providing all students with knowledge and skills to become college and career ready in an environment emphasizing the PAX Good Behavior Game, which includes peace, productivity, health and happiness with the core belief “I better my world, and I better myself.”

It is our desire to:

- Provide a nurturing, consistent environment which emphasizes the development of the individual child’s social, emotional, physical, and academic growth.

- To teach all children so they may achieve their highest academic potential utilizing authentic learning experiences, to build a foundation to become college and career ready, and to be lifelong learners.

- To guide all children in becoming leaders, problem solvers, and listeners.

- To encourage appropriate relationships through parent and community involvement in the school.

Our Goal:

Hodgesville Elementary School will have an increase of at least 1.0 GE growth for 40% of our students as based on beginning of the year to end of the year data for 2021 – 2022 end of year assessments for Math and English Language Arts.
