Kindergarten Orientation~We are still in need of some volunteers!

Our orientation for new kindergarten families (2016-2017) will be May 26th at 5:30pm. The session for parents will be held in the cafeteria from 5:30-6:00pm (maybe 6:15pm) followed by a short tour of the building/visiting classrooms. We need your help! Some of the rising kindergarten students will come with their families and we need volunteers to provide childcare in the media center from 5:15pm - approximately 7pm (probably done earlier than this). If you are willing to assist us, please complete the sign-up using the link below. (If you need make-up hours, this will count!) Click on the link HERE to sign up to help!

Garden News!

Would you like your class to plant in our school gardens? Our final vegetable bed is almost complete and then we will need to plant pumpkins, squash and other vining plants in that box. If you would like your class to plant, let us know (hsesgardenclub@gmail.com). We are happy to be there to help you and your students and give guidance if needed!


Check out our new bulletin board in the hall across from the vegetable gardens. It has information on what is happening in both the veggie and native gardens!
