Read Across America Celebration

We had a great week honoring Dr. Seuss and the joy of reading aloud. Our students and staff really enjoyed dressing up for our Dr. Seuss Spirit Week. Thank you to all of our parents who joined us to share their own favorite stories! Thank you to our fabulous staff who dedicated time after school to create Seussville in our JHES Foyer. It's been a fun week!

Take a look at our photos from the event.

Online Payments

We encourage parents to use our online service when paying for field trips. Doing so limits the amount of money that children have to carry and the amount handled in the school. Click on the link below to find your child's trip. Please note: Each trip has a drop down menu bar that displays the teachers' name. Please be sure to select the correct teacher.

If you have any issues with the system please contact Ms. Allen in the front office or email latonya_allen@hcpss.org. Thank you for helping us improve our money collection process.
