Upcoming PTO Meeting

Cardinal Parents,

On Thursday, January 14 at 6:00pm our Assistant Superintendent, Dr. Combs, will be joining us at our PTO meeting to talk more about how HSE21 and the 1:1 iPad roll-out will work for K-4 elementary grades. Next year all students in HSE (including our Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade students) will use an iPad at school as a tool for learning. Please join us at this meeting to learn more. We will meet in the library. Our PTO will provide childcare in the gym.

We will have some fun prizes available for those in attendance, as well. We look forward to seeing you January 14 at 6:00pm!
