A Publication for HES Staff

Week of September 28th


Hope you enjoyed the beautiful weather this weekend! It was great to see many of you at the Harvest Fair on Saturday.

I will begin formal observations this week. Please be aware that other administrators may do the same. Let me know if you have any questions about the process.

JoAnn will be sending an email sometime this week to sign up for Farm to School Day via Google forms on October 23rd.

Finally, thank you for submitting your cell # via the Google form. Early this week, I will be sending a test text. My goal is to use this option to communicate with you about important reminders, emergencies, etc.

Ready for the first full week ahead? :)


Thank You

+ Our teachers for hosting an engaging and informative Back to School Night. Parent feedback was wonderful, and I thoroughly enjoyed visiting each of your classrooms during presentations.

+ Staff members involved in administering the fall universal screening. Results have been emailed to staff.

Friendly Reminders

+ Several teachers have expressed an interest in applying for an HVEF grant. Your ideas have been so innovative! Please take advantage of this opportunity and reach out to let me know how I may assist. Applications are due in early November, but early submissions are welcome.

+ Kindly remember to use the office whiteboard when you or your students will be out of the building.

Parent Conferences

We will again be using Sign-up Genius for our conference sign-ups this year.

In order to do that, each of you will need to create an account with your @hvrsd.org email address. If you created one last year, you should be all set. But it's a good idea to make sure you can log in still. If you need to create one, please click the following link and create your own account: https://www.signupgenius.com/register. Please sign-in to create an account by Friday, October 2nd.

I will be creating sign-ups for each of you as we did last year – I will transfer the

account to you as we get closer to sign-up time, so you will receive email notifications when parents sign up, and can manage the schedule.

If you are a new staff member, please see your mentor, a colleague or me for help.
