Our Next PTO Classroom Party

Our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) will host our next classroom party later in the spring, not in February. In years prior to the pandemic, our TCE PTO hosted a classroom party on or near Valentine's Day.

If your child would like to bring a Friendship card or Valentine card to each of their classmates, they may! Cards must be signed at home and cannot include food or candy. The cards will be placed into the students' backpacks on February 14th for the students and their families to read and enjoy at home. Friendship cards or Valentine cards are optional.

In the spring our PTO will share details about the next classroom party.

Wondering about classroom parties? Here's the HSE School Board approved language from the student handbook regarding elementary classroom parties:


Schools may have up to two classroom celebrations during the year. It is the decision of the individual building administrator as to what the celebrations will entail and when they will take place. Examples of the celebrations are traditional classroom parties, presentations of student learning, or service learning projects. Treats may be provided through HSE food services in conjunction with payment by the PTO. Students should not bring in candy or other food items during these celebrations.

Snow Fun Is So Fun!

HSE Covid Dashboard

Data for this tracker is collected from the school nurse at each building and includes information relating to students and staff members. The tracker will be updated every Monday morning to show new COVID-related absences and positive cases that occurred in the previous week. The school nurse along with the Fishers Health Department will determine the length of quarantine based on current information and guidance. Past data will remain on the dashboard to view historical trends. To see data for a specific building, select the box next to the site you want to view.


Each day please be sure that your child has a mask, a refillable water bottle (with your child's name on it), and an optional snack (Goldfish crackers, SkinnyPop popcorn, fruit, vegetable, and/or cheese).
