Giving Tuesday

An HSE Schools holiday tradition is right around the corner. Every year, the largest charitable holiday known as #GivingTuesday kicks off the giving season. This special day – designed to restore the spirit of the season – is in direct response to the commercialism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

You can help HSE Schools earn up to $26,000 in matching funds from local philanthropists. On 11.28.17, David Becker Family, Allen and Melissa Bourff, Kevin and Shelly Clasen Family, Bud and Karen Colglazier, John and Amy DeLucia, Joe and Florie Eaton, Kevin and Diana Ephlin Family, Bill French, Fritz in Fishers, Michelle and Greg Fullhart, The Henderson Family, Todd and Denise Huston, Walt and Sheila Kelly, John and Kyle Kroehler, Tom Long of Long and Associates CPA, John McDonald, Kurt and Cathy Meyer Family, John and Dorothy Mills, Tracy and Jessica Mills Family, Jodi and Greg Osmun, Mike and Paula Peterson, Terry and Lisa Tolle, Corby Thompson, and anonymous donors are launching an around the clock match every hour of GivingTuesday!

Double your impact on local schools by visiting www.hsefoundation.org to make a donation and proclaim your #HSSFunselfie!

Weekly G.R.I.P. Winners

All HRE students know about G.R.I.P. - an acronym which stands for Gratitude Respect Integrity Purpose. Students may earn "GRIP SLIPS" by demonstrating any one of these character traits. Each week, teachers draw one name from their classroom Grip Slips and that student is the Grip Slip winner for the week from that classroom. Those names are then entered into a weekly drawing per grade level; one name is drawn per grade level and those students come to the office to choose a small prize. We are pleased to announce our Grip Slip winners for the week:


Kindergarten: David Kolic from Mrs. Howard's class demonstrated Respect.


1st Grade: John Frank from Mrs. Gue's class demonstrated Integrity.


2nd Grade: Mariana Kumwenda from Mrs. Lisas' class demonstrated Respect.


3rd Grade: Makenna Kenworthy from Ms. Sitar's class demonstrated Gratitude.


4th Grade: Landon Irvin from Mrs. Mitchell's class demonstrated Gratitude.

Yearbook Cover Contest

HRE Yearbook Cover Contest Rules

This year’s yearbook theme is “Super Heroes Learn Here”. Have your child be creative and use his/her imagination by using a cover that captures the essence of HRE with a Super Hero twist. Show through drawings what Hoosier Road is all about. Remember, this is your child's project and we are looking forward to seeing their artwork! Just remember it needs to be school appropriate.



  • Your child's work must be on the “official” cover page provided. Please click here to download the template. If you don't have access to a printer, students can stop by the office to get a cover page template.
  • Have your child use only colored pencils and crayons. No markers or digital artwork.
  • Every artist needs to sign their work! Be sure your child puts his/her name in the bottom right hand corner in the “star”.
  • School name, year, and theme are already included on the template and not needed. Any additional wording must be legible. Please have your child take their time and do their best work when they write.
  • All entries MUST be turned in NO LATER THAN Friday morning, December 1st. No exceptions.
  • Please be sure your child follows the rules (listed above). Those not following the directions will not be considered.
  • We will have one winner – for the front cover! The winner will be announced by the end of the week (no later than Friday, December 10th).
