Panorama Survey

our voice is important to us! In order to learn more about student and family experiences in WCPSS, we are asking for your feedback via a survey. You should have received an email from
Panorama Education that includes a survey link. The survey is open Monday, March 25 - Friday, May 3. Please take a moment to complete the survey. This survey is vital for our family engagement work. Thank you for your thoughtful responses!

National Volunteer Service Week

National Volunteer Service Week is April 8th - 12th, and we are inviting all HSES families to participate. It is the goal of Wake County to have programs and activities that support efforts to develop good character and give students the opportunity to learn how to act responsibly toward others. All schools are encouraged to provide opportunities for student involvement in community service or service-learning projects. Our school has chosen to participate in the National Volunteer Service Week by participating in two main service activities. With the support of the HSES Student Council, we will be writing letters to active service members or veterans, as well as continuing our annual food drive to support the Holly Springs Food Cupboard. Due to the track in/track out that occured, the Food Drive will continue through the month of March. Please show your support by sending in the donated bags with items. Teachers will be incorporating the letter writing into their social studies curriculum during the same period of time. You can also encourage students to write letters at home and send them in to school. We are grateful for your support and are excited to see what the HSES community can do together during this time!

Intent Notification


As we move toward the 2019-2020 school year, it is important that we are aware of the intentions of each family. Planning enrollment is one of the most critical elements to planning a new school year. To have a better idea of student enrollment for the 2019-2020 school year, we would like to know your intentions (Please note that this is not binding).

Track 1,2,3 families: Please complete and return your letter by April 10, 2019.
