President's Note
There's less than a week until our Winter Wonderland parent/child dance! The PTA Events Committee has been planning this event for months, and braved the tornado warnings last week to put the final touches on it all (including joining the students in enacting the school's safety plan). I cannot wait to hear how much fun you all have with your families and see the pictures you will surely take in the wonderland setting they have designed for you. Please make plans to join in all the fun!

Here's your reminder that tomorrow, Monday, Jan 16th, is when we celebrate the life and work Martin Luther King, Jr. Schools will be closed for the holiday.

I'll see you on Tuesday!
Molli Kirby

PS - No, you haven't missed any yearbook ordering information. We expect to get all the details from the school soon. Be on the lookout here for it!

HCES people are the best!
Many thanks to Kara Downing and Kristen Gilbert for providing the Happy Cart to our teachers and staff this past Thursday morning...aka the day we "didn't just practice" our tornado drill. The “Thanks for all you do ‘ROUND here” theme was so fun! They stuck with the school through that crazy morning and everyone was thankful they did!
