Fix the Funding Formula: Legislative Priorities for Hamilton Southeastern Schools

As you know, funding for HSE schools is one of the lowest in the state. The Indiana House of Representatives has passed House Bill 1001 which would modify the funding formula and increase funding to our district by 5.6 percent. The additional funding would enable HSE to operate without a structural deficit, keep up with the cost of living, and address growing class sizes. As it moves to the state senate and continues to be evaluated, please take a moment to write a letter to our State Representative to help encourage them to support our kids and fix the school funding formula. Templates can be accessed via the HSE website or by following this link

PTO Open Forum Meeting

Please join us for our next meeting on Tuesday, April 14, at 7:00 p.m. in the Art room.

3rd Grade Music Concerts

Dear Parents,

We have been working hard in music class over the past few months. We are very excited to put on a showcase of all the music we have been creating. In order to better highlight the individuality and creativity of the children, we will be having two 3rd grade concerts, one hour apart. Mr. Miller’s and Ms. Roth’s classes will have a showcase on March 26th at 6:00 PM in the CRES Gym. Ms. Head, Ms. Cook, and Ms. Nussbaum’s classes will have their showcase at 7:00 PM. Students report to their teachers’ classrooms ten minutes prior to the performance. Students should wear semi-formal attire such as they would for picture day. Any shoes are fine as long as children can move easily in them. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
