WELCOME BACK, HORNETS!
Check out the video below to see a few of the reasons why we are HORNET PROUD!
SPECIAL WELCOME FROM WISHTV-8!
Important message for Hornet Park Elementary families from Mrs. Erin Probus:
Dear Hornet Park families,
The day we have been waiting for is almost here! We are BEYOND excited for the start of the school year. Your babies will walk into an EXTRAORDINARY space filled with fresh paint, new features and so much love and excitement!
With this new construction, you may still drive by and see some spaces that appear unfinished. Care has been taken throughout this process to prioritize the completion of spaces where our children will learn, where they will laugh and where they will feel SAFE! Cosmetically we may still have some blemishes, but this just makes it all the more exciting as we get closer to seeing the final transformation that was only on paper a few short years ago.
So please join us as we ignore some of the sights that may still feel imperfect, and get ready to receive the incredible gift that will be the final completion of the Hornet Park Early Childhood Center. Until then, we cannot wait to see those smiling faces at our OPEN HOUSE on Tuesday and on the first day of classes just one day after!
