The Class of 2029

Students joining us for Kindergarten next school year are members of the class of 2029! We will be hosting a family night on Tuesday, May 3 from 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm to share information about KHES and our kindergarten classrooms. If you have an incoming Kindergartner, we hope you can join us. Spread the word!

Saying Goodbye...

We recently announced the names of our friends who will be leaving KHES at the end of the school year. Please consider taking some time to tell these amazing educators how much you appreciate them. When making a decision to try something new, it is never easy. I completely understand those torn feelings. Our friends have impacted the lives of so many students over the years. No matter where we land, we will always keep KHES in our heart.

How Do You Make a Teacher Smile? CHOCOLATE!

We are running VERY LOW on our chocolate supply and our teachers LOVE CHOCOLATE ! If you would like to donate bags of miniature candies like Reese's, Twix, M&M's, etc. just drop them off in the front office. Mrs. Eriksen keeps a bucket of chocolate in her office everyday specifically to make the entire staff SMILE.
