Happy Friday!

Hello HHES Families,

May has flown by and the end of the year is quickly approaching. Please make sure to follow the upcoming events section of this newsletter which will provide you with the most current events happening on our campus.

We finished up our first week of SBA testing for our 4th grade students and we are heading into the 2nd week of testing with having our 5th graders begin the assessment. Thank you for helping us by making sure your students are getting enough sleep and coming to school each day. This helps us in coordinating schedules to ensure completion of the assessments.

We also encourage you to follow us on Facebook! It's a great way to see what we are up to around our campus.

Parent Input Form

Please help us make Parent Pick-up and Drop-off more efficient

*During drop-off in the morning, please pull all the way to the front of the line and unload. Students can unload from the car as long as you are next to the curb. We would ideally want to unload 7-8 cars at a time.

*During pick-up, please pull as close as possible to the car in front of you so that we can get more cars in the lanes.

All students will be proficient in reading by the end of second grade and maintain proficiency until the end of fifth grade, because we believe reading is the key for all students to achieve their dreams.
