  • HEBRON VALLEY CELEBRATES SOCKTOBER!!! Socktober is a movement to get kids and grownups to help the homeless in a fun, easy way. The goal is to prove that even the smallest acts of love, like donating a pair of brand new socks, can make a big difference in the lives of our neighbors who are homeless. So let’s get started! Please send your sock donations to school from Tuesday, Oct. 13 through Friday, Oct. 23. Any size new socks for children and adults will be accepted! We hope you will join us in making our community a better place!

  • Cool Shade is a program we will have at school to teach the value of trees. Each student will be given a tree to take home on Oct. 30
  • Hebron High School Silver Wings is hosting its annual Dance Clinic on Saturday, October 17th.
  • To celebrate ALL the wonderfully diverse cultures represented at our school, the HVE ESL Department would like to announce that we are hosting a multicultural student parade on Friday morning, October 16, 2015. To participate, your child may come to school dressed in traditional clothing that represents your family’s country and/or heritage. We can’t wait to see all the cultures represented at Hebron Valley!
