Update from this Friday.....

As most of our car-rider families noticed, on Friday morning, during arrival time, there was an accident involving a car and an adult pedestrian. The individual involved in the accident is doing well. He sustained some injuries that will take some time for recovery. However, we are all hoping for a full recovery.

I want to take a moment, after such a traumatic event, to remind all of our families of how important our safety protocols & laws are. Please remember:

  1. NEVER use a cell phone on school grounds when you are in a vehicle.
  2. The speed on Har-Ber Avenue should never be over 20mph.
  3. If you are driving East on Har-Ber, please start slowing as you approach Storm's Orthodontics, that curve is dangerous and we do have walkers & bikers from those neighborhoods.
  4. Do not turn left out of our parking lot onto Har-Ber Ave. during arrival & dismissal times.

We have been working with our Maintenance Department & the city of Springdale to install crossing lights on the crosswalks both in front of our school and further down the road. Those should be coming soon. Thank you everyone, for helping keep our students safe!

ACT Aspire Testing is coming......

We have scheduled our ACT Aspire assessments to be given the week of April 26-30. As you are making appointments, please keep this in mind. We are asking that you DO NOT check your student out this week. Our goal is always to get 100% of our students assessed.

We will have a special surprise for all students with 100% attendance in April!!!!

We had a scheduling conflict and had to reschedule: Any 6th grader that is interested in playing 7th grade football for Hellstern next year will need to meet with Coach Foringer during Advisory on April 5th. We will make an announcement to call you to the cafeteria.

Honor Choir

Students can check the 6th grade google classroom to see the list of honor choir students. If you did not get your flipgrid audition submitted, there is still time!
