This Week's Snapshots

We had a big week last week and enjoyed every moment. Thank you to everyone who made our Ribbon Cutting Ceremony a successful, memorable experience worthy of the Herff legacy. We celebrated the grandparents in our lives at our special Grandparents Day lunch sponsored by Cordillera. Finally, we were honored to welcome Congressman Chip Roy to our campus to learn about Herff's innovation, social emotional learning, and collaborative spaces. There is much to celebrate at Herff Elementary School!
