A Publication for HES Staff
Week of November 16th
I'm not sure where to begin. Only a few short weeks ago, we set a lofty goal to assemble 50 Thanksgiving baskets for families in need. Together, we have met this goal. Once again, our staff has come together to make something extraordinary occur. In addition, our parents have also been extremely generous and supportive. Thanks to each of you, 50 families will be able to enjoy a warm and delicious meal including turkey and all of the sides. My sincere thanks to everyone involved!
We also have dozens of additional cans which will be donated to the East Trenton Center.
In addition, I'm excited to share that more than $1200 has been raised thanks to our coin races. Next week, it will be shared with our community that Pajama Day was the most popular choice.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Twice a year, Christine’s Hope for Kids, a Mercer County non-profit, selects a child or teen to be honored as a “Christine’s Hero” who embodies what Christine, the organization’s namesake, was all about: being kind to others, creating happiness and fun for everyone she knew, and serving and assisting others who are less fortunate.
Christine’s Hope for Kids (CHFK) is looking for nominations for their next Christine’s Hero — ordinary people doing extraordinary things… just like Christine did. Other characteristics that make a candidate worthy of the award are facing adversity or overcoming obstacles, getting peers and community involved with serving others, and consistently and selflessly giving of his or her time and resources.
“Christine’s Hero’s is about recognizing ordinary kids who do extraordinary things to make a difference,” said Jean Gianacaci, CHFK founder. “They enlist the help of other kids getting them involved in community service and giving back to the community. They give generously of their time and talent to help others.”
Please consider nominating a student by 11/27. Nominations may be submitted online. It will only take 5 minutes. Let me know if you have any questions.
