Happy Sunday!

Hello HHES Families,

We hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We had some beautiful weather towards the end of the week and it was amazing to see the sun shining.

We have a busy week this week! May is always full of activities and events.

State testing starts this week. On Monday and Tuesday our 5th grade students will be taking their science assessments and 4th Grade will be starting math. On Wednesday and Thursday our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students will begin taking their ELA assessments. On Friday, we will have make-up testing. Please help us by ensuring your students are at school and arrive on time. Thank you!

If you have an incoming Kindergarten student, please consider joining us for our Kindergarten Round Up on Wednesday, May 3rd at 6:00pm in the library.

We have our 1st grade concert this week on Thursday, May 4th at 6:30 pm at HHES. We hope to see you there!

On Friday, we have our Hornet Hustle fundraising run! The Boosterthon team has been joining us every day engaging with our students for this fun event. We also have our annual Book Swap and Literacy Night on Friday evening. We hope you can join us for both.

Enjoy your evening,

Mr. Robertson & Mrs. Colpron

SBA Testing starts this week!

We begin SBA testing this week. Please see the schedule below to see when each grade level is testing. If specific grades are not listed, then that means grades 3-5 are testing on those days.

Please help us by sending your student to school each day and arriving on time. It limits the testing interruptions and need for make-ups.

Thank you for helping us with this.
