Grandparent's Day- Sept. 13

Traditionally we have Grandparent's Week at HES. During this week we have invited all Grandparents to eat breakfast and shop with their grandchild at the book fair. Due to our new guidelines, unfortunately cannot host a Grandparents Week. The book fair date has also been pushed back to October.


As the building leader of HES, I wanted to thank each and every grandparent for the impact you have made on your grandchild. We appreciate each and every grandparent.

HES PTO is off to a great start for the 2020-2021 school year! Thanks to all that were able to help with the playground improvements; the kiddos at Highlandville Elementary are enjoying a new four-square court, hop scotch, and other sidewalk art. The basketball court lines have been repainted, swings have been replaced, and other improvements are still in the works.


The Boohoo Yahoo Breakfast provided a chance to meet some new faces and was a success again this year.
